In South Central Los Angeles, street cops Brian and Mike are partners - balls-out cowboys patrolling the streets as Latino gangs are in a power struggle with Blacks. Brian and Mike get lucky a couple of times, making big drug and human-trafficking busts, so a Mexican cartel orders their deaths. We meet Mike's pregnant wife (whom he married out of high school) and watch Brian's search for a soul mate. There are internal squabbles within the ranks of the LAPD and lots of squad-car conversation. Can the lads escape the cartel's murderous reach? Written by
To achieve the shots captured by the main characters' lapel cameras, Michael Mansouri of rental house Radiant Images stripped down a Silicon Imaging SI-2K Mini camera to about a third of its original size, to be attached to special vests worn by Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña. The camera was dubbed the "Nano", and was subsequently made available to other productions for rental. See more »
During the opening locker room scene, Officer Taylor states "this is the department issue sidearm; Glock 19." The gun he holds up to the camera, however, is clearly stamped "22" and ".40," indicating that it is not a 9mm Glock 19 but instead a .40S&W Glock 22. See more »
I am the police, and I'm here to arrest you. You've broken the law. I did not write the law. I may even disagree with the law but I will enforce it. No matter how you plead, cajole, beg or attempt to stir my sympathies, nothing you do will stop me from placing you in a steel cage with gray bars. If you run away I will chase you. If you fight me I will fight back. If you shoot at me I will shoot back. By law I am unable to walk away. I am a consequence. I am the unpaid bill. I am ...

This film is dedicated to the men and women of the law enforcement community who face danger daily on our behalf.

If you want to be at the edge of your seat the entire movie you should definitely watch this. I went to a screening a long time ago so the scenes may have changed a bit and maybe made a bit easier on the viewer but the version we saw was absolutely AMAZING movie. The story grips you all along and drags you without giving you a moment to look away from the screen. If you like intense movies like Crash, Stuck or Drive then this is for you.
Everyone applauded after the movie finished at the screening. The story is just so real and so intense that makes your hair stand straight.
The good thing is that from the first second you get into the movie until the very end. Its a story of love and intense action combined that is real not superficial. Its something that could be happening right now in your neighborhood.
