The movie starts out with an elite undercover group (The Losers) operating in Bolivia. An air strike is called in to take out some drug dealers. The Losers espy children in the group being used as "mules." They attempt to call off the strike, only to be foiled on the radio by a guy named "Max." With 5 minutes left, they go in and do a rescue operation, saving the kids from the air strike. A helicopter comes down to pick them up, but can't transport both The Losers and the 25 kids so the The Losers give up their seats (Buddy Holly thanks you.) The Helicopter is shot down and all those kids are killed.
The Losers realize they were the target and they toss their dog tags into the wreckage to make it look like they died. While living "undercover" in Bolivia they meet Zoe Saldana who tells them she can get them back home if they go kill Max for her. The movie contains some minor plot twists, but it is not complicated. The characters are convincing and likable. The acting was simply great. The dialogue was original, crisp, and witty. The soundtrack was great, but why does every movie which involves spooks (CIA) and Latin America plays "Black Betty?"
Recap: Great movie. Action keeps moving. Great dialogue. Humor. Good characters. Really was nothing not to like. Zoe is hot. It is on par with Basic.
