Storyline

The police force decides to raid a crack house in the Hochelaga/Maisonneuve district of Montreal. A SWAT team enters the premises followed by a cameraman filming for a reality TV show about police officers; they're confident that this is a routine operation and all the suspects will be arrested without trouble. To their surprise the junkies are equally as armed as they are and a shoot-out ensues. In the mayhem the police are forced to retreat quickly but the cameraman and two officers, one seriously wounded, are left behind and taken hostage. Back-up arrives, the building is completely surrounded and snipers are put into place. Negotiations are attempted in vain for the release of the hostages. During the next 36 hours, supplies for the junkies run low and pressure runs high. During that time they force the cameraman to record their version of things. Written by pr1mal_1

Intense and shocking movie...
3 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is an intense movie with good actors. There are lots of swears, drugs use and violence but it makes the movie intense. It is filmed like Blair Witch Project... The story is the following: In a place where lots of people use and buy drugs, a bunch of cops go there and want to arrest people that are in this building, but a bunch of junkies have guns, kill cops and keep some of them for hostages...they stay in the building because there are cops and snipers all around the building. They beat up the cops they insult them...the movie is about these junkies who have these cops for hostages and use drugs...we learn their whole lives and the ending is very powerful...I give it 85%.
