Storyline

Hard realities intertwine when an elite division of L.A. undercover narcotics cops, Division 123, begins to peel away the layers of a powerful drug cartel to undermine their manipulative influence. A study in humanity: of the cops and the challenge they face to balance a commitment to those they love, against their commitment to task and ability to protect. At one moment, immersed in the glitz of L.A.'s glamor and the next, looping into the city's seedy underbelly, 'DISRUPT/DISMANTLE' follows these officers as they go head-to-head with a ruthless yet seductive foe. Echoing the familiar scenario of cops vs. bad guys, this story presents itself with new vigor, fresh and focused on the lives of determined cops making choices - and mistakes. As the discovery of bodies begins to tarnish the investigation - including the brutal murder of one of their own, Division 123 disregards the law to bring down the most powerful drug mob in the U.S. Heralding new talent and veteran actors who come ...

Say cheese-y
4 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watched this movie at a recent film fest, I came into it with some decent expectations. I was not blown away. The movie was alright for a lower budget film, so I hope they didn't spend a lot on it. The special effects weren't too bad, but the sound effects were bad. The same gunshot sound effects over and over drowned out everything else. A lot of the time the background noise was way too loud, sometimes I couldn't hear what was being said. A couple of times I could hear the actors digesting... I think they put mic's in their mouths. During tense parts, the camera was shaky, just to make sure the audience understood it was supposed to be tense. The movie had flashy cars, flashy babes, flashy clothes, cheesy lines, cheesy scenes, and follows detectives around, no not CSI: Miami, Disrupt/Dismantle. The only difference between these guys and real police is that these guys are much bigger rebels, yeah we wear leather jackets, we do what we want, we drink on the job etc etc. I was glad when it was free, but then because it was so long I had to pay for parking, not worth it.
