Did You Know?
When Roque enters the store through the ceiling after Jensen is shot, he drops down near a long display of dolls called "Girls Of America". They're the same dolls Jensen and Cougar were assembling in the Bolivian factory.
When Aisha has a gun pointed to her forehead, she grabs it but the next cut scene shows her hand gone from the gun.

Predictable but enjoyable
I think people are being too hard on this movie. It's a big shiny
explosions movie, with nothing especially new plot wise, to be sure,
but who goes to action movies for plot? Not me! Clever repartee, good
looking men (Saldana is hot, yes, but I'm female so … Evans and
Morgan, I'm lookin' at you), a villain landing somewhere between James
Bond and Austin Powers, helicopter stunts, big guns, and big
explosions. Good times.
Some great locations, good editing (also nice marriage of comic book
style to live action style in the credits),decent soundtrack.
The Losers doesn't take itself too seriously, and neither should you.
