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>

Baldwin ain't no Rambo
30 December 2007 | by jimakrosSee all my reviews

Baldwin is trying to be Rambo here,kills about everyone in sight and then some.The guy should stick to stuff he does well and forget trying to be Stallone.Thats about all there is to say about this movie.The plot is about a bunch of crazy vigilante cops who seem to just like to murder people,some of whom happen to be criminals.Baldwin does his best to act tough and delivers every line in as much a husky voice as he can master but he just ain't the dude for this type of role.He is a cop opposed to the lawless violence,meets a prostitute played by Tia Carrere whom i usually like but i didn't like her in this,she has too may wisecracks and too much personality for this role. Neither the bad guys nor the good guys make any sense in this movie,there is a lot of shooting but the motivations and the characters are all paper-thin,Palminteri is simply wasted here.
