Storyline

After a young cop gets involved in his third shooting, he is recruited into a special police unit. He quickly learns that the unit is an assassination corps for hoodlums and they don't care who gets in the way. Saving the life of a child gets him a beating by the unit, which they call an initiation. When they raid a mobster's home and start killing hoods and call girls who just happens to be there, he draws a line when he finds one hiding in a closet. He then goes on the run with her with gangsters and the cops both in pursuit. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Run of the mill action flick
23 February 2000 | by SciurusSee all my reviews

I had the chance to watch this for free and I've got to say it was worth every penny. Seriously, it was not nearly as bad as it could have been. It's a decent if never surprising "action" movie with a bit of cleavage and lingerie thrown in. I felt that a lot of parts seemed thrown together and rushed, but I've seen a whole lot worse.
