Storyline

In a Los Angeles dominated by violent gangs and a corrupt LAPD Precinct, the dirty Officer Armando Sancho is haunted by his guilty since an innocent old man was accidentally killed in an operation with his also dirty partner Salim Adel. The Internal Affairs is pressing Sancho, who feels split between the loyalty to his mates and his conscience, and he has to make a statement at 6:00 PM. When his superiors Captain Spain and his Lieutenant assign the two cops for an operation dealing drugs apprehended by the police and stored as evidence with a powerful drug dealer, Sancho feels that something is wrong and they have been framed.

Trivia

Director Chris Fisher wanted to convey a sense of Los Angeles being a dry, desolate place where people aren't supposed to live, which was a challenge since shooting took place during early 2005, one of the rainiest seasons in Los Angeles history. See more »

Wannabe Training Day, Godfather, Scarface & Colors
5 May 2006 | by (Los Angeles, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the AFI Film Festival followed by a Q&A with the Director. Unfortunately, this film lacks originality and creativity. It is obvious that the director stole ideas from Training Day, The Godfather, Scarface and Colors. The only character I liked was the Captain. Everyone else gave a marginal performance, including Cuba Gooding. Who proved once again that all he is good at is recreating the same character that won him an Oscar in Jerry McGuire. When there are extreme moments of excitement and yelling is when Cuba's only talent is revealed. The director is a USC Filmschool graduate, which proves once again that you do not need film school to be a good director.
