Storyline

After a woman cop is shot in a burglary attempt that kills her fiancé and wounds another fellow officer, the two officers join a security agency where large amounts of cash are stored. A criminal team captures the agency and begins to break into the company vaults. Led by Mr. Rabbit and Mr. Pig, a crazed killer, the two hold the staff in the agency hostage while the rest of the team work on the vault. Geary works to get messages out to her former police cohort, who is a field agent for the firm, and fights the criminals psychologically and ultimately physically.

Bland title, bland film.
8 August 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Hostile Force is a bland, generic title for a bland, generic film. You've seen the same premise and the same characters a hundred times before. It's not bad or unwatchable but it simply has nothing to distinguish it from countless other DTV movies. A robbery gone bad leaves a female cop without a husband. Two years later she is working as a coordinator for a security company. One of their sites - an armoured car base - gets hit by robbers with a simultaneous assault on the security centre.The majority of the film focuses on the ex-cop's attempts to sneak a message to the jobbing security maintenance man, who by a stunning coincidence is also an ex-cop who quit after the same robbery that her old man was offed in.
