Storyline

A group of Chicago cops are involved in a raid from which $3,000,000 disappears. The local mob go after them and the body count starts to rise. The new Chief of Police makes it clear to the last remaining officer that he will look the other way if he takes the law into his own hands. When the policeman finds he can't follow through on this someone else does and he finds himself and his girl are being hunted by more or less everyone for their own reasons.

Great Movie!
9 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is an awesome martial arts Movie. The action is fast-paced, the plot is intriguing and original. Great cast, direction and editing are perfect. The fight scenes are very realistic. The acting is all very good as you'd expect from a top notch cast and there are plenty of fight scenes to keep the pace up.

Lance Henriksen is great as the corrupt Police Chief and you will throw things at the screen while he's being evil.

it's the kinda cop movie we don't see anymore with plenty of fights, nudity and electric guitar music..

"Excessive Force" is a 90 minute visual feast of pure adrenaline! A must-see film for any fan of good cinema.
