Plot:

A group of black ops mercenaries plan their revenge against the government that set them up for death in Bolivia. So it's basically the A Team, but with one extra member. And Zoe Saldana.

 
So, how does it end?

Using info from the stolen Golaith hardrive, they track a misplaced $4million to the Drug Baron from the first scene who has a daughter ... Aisha. They run into Clay's room who is discovering for himself that things are not what they seem. She shoots Jensen in the arm then dives into the bathroom as The Losers pepper the walls with gunfire. They kick down the door to see she has escaped out a window.

Roque turns, well, rogue after the Miami heist didn't deliver Max. He tells them that the frequent IP address on the harddrive they stole is located at the Los Angeles pier. The team get into action and plan their attack.

In LA, Jensen scales the pier hanger building and opens the doors for Clay and Roque. Inside Roque summons Clay over to an open container. Soon enough outside, Pooch, the driver, is surrounded and surrenders and Cougar the sniper is cornered. Jensen jumps into the building meant to house the server and is captured. It's a trap. Meanwhile, the container is full of money - and Roque knocks Clay cold out.

Max backs down on his deal with the Indian engineers - he'll keep the money, and in return for not killing them he wants them to arm the first snook. The engineer gets his hands dirty, and is shot in the head anyway.

At dawn Clay is bound and taken away by car, while the 3 others are about to be executed. Pooch is shot in both legs. Suddenly Aisha is back on the scene with an RPG. The 3 fight against the guards, while this gives an incentive to Clay to knock out his captors and the car crashes against something. Like with Transformers, why do hostages in movies just accept death until a little distraction suddenly transforms them into Rambo?

Anyway, Clay admits that he killed Aisha'a dad - the drug lord in the first scene, but they decide to leave all those emotions until the end. After a huge firefight, most of Max's men are killed. Clay chases Roque who has boarded Max's private jet with the money. They fight and Clay is kicked out, but not before blinding the traitor in one eye.

Wade gets on the Ducati to take out Clay and reach the plane. Meanwhile, Cougar has somehow found himself on top of a suspended container high in the air. He takes aim and shoots the bike's fuel tank - it explodes sending Wade into the jet engines, and the flaming bike into the plane's cockpit. Burning money rains down, as Clay dives out the way.

Clay spies Max making a getaway up a crane. He follows, and shoots at the chopper meant to be his ride which disappears. Max has the pressure detonator for the armed snook in his hand. Clay shoots him in the arm anyway. Then Max throws it into the water - Clay dives in after it to stop the seismic explosion. Max, somehow, gets away. (He makes it onto a bus, where he is fleeced by some mean looking Latinos).

At the end, the team break Pooch into the hospital for the birth of his child - a healthy baby boy - and blames the traffic for his delay.

Later, they attend Jensen's niece's soccer match - where he picks a fight with a very butch female referee when she is quite blatantly fouled by a bigger kid.
