Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Losers

Clay is the leader of The Losers, a black-ops squad for the United States. They consist of Roque, a short-tempered knife expert; Pooch, the resident driver/escape artist; Jensen, a smart-aleck tech wizard; and Cougar, a mostly silent sniper. They are ordered to take down a drug kingpin's operation, but they find a bunch of child slaves, so they order an abort on the mission. Max, the man on the radio who ordered the operation, tells them to go ahead with the mission. When Clay and the rest ignore the command, Max sends a missile their way. Unfortunately, The Losers send the rescued children on their exit helicopter, so when it's blown up by Max, they realize they've been targeted and stay in hiding, faking their deaths. Some months later, a woman named Aisha approaches Clay, asking the Losers for help in killing Max, the man who ruined their lives. They plan to attack a transport allegedly carrying Max, but when they do, all they find is a hard drive. The hard drive is protected by a super difficult password, but Jensen knows where to find the algorithm needed to break it-- of course, this requires another highly dangerous heist. They obtain the algorithm, and when they read the drive, they realize that they have evidence that Max sold a special type of nuclear bomb to terrorists in exchange for $400 million. The drive leads them to the Port of Entry in Los Angeles, where the deal is about to go down. The Losers must do all they can, including overcoming the betrayal of one of their own, to stop Max from causing a possible international incident.

Best part of story, including ending: I love how funny and quirky all of these heroes are, the villain has some terrific one-liners, and the action is stylishly shot. This is an underrated comic book adaptation.

Best scene in story: Jensen breaking into steal the algorithm, which includes getting caught pantsless in the elevator by some hot women, is a hilarious and suspenseful sequence.

Opinion about the main character: Clay has the burden of being the leader, so he isn't given as many quips as the rest, but he still has the poise and ethics necessary in a hero we root for.
