Storyline

Ben Kinnear and Mike Paddock are detectives with the Melbourne Police force's elite Zero Tolerance Unit. When a freak accident involving a dead magistrate lands them on the front page of the local paper, Ben and Mike are busted down to uniformed duties. But when Ben discovers a strange link between the accident and the business affairs of a shady casino boss he and Mike have been investigating, the pair decide they can no longer turn a blind eye to the corruption rife amongst their own colleagues.

Trivia

Director Tony Martin had a rule that everyone who worked on the movie had to be seen on screen. One of his boom operators refused, but Martin got lucky when the reflection of that particular boom operator is seen in the security guard's window during the Northey/XL9000 scenes. Martin decided not to use optical effects to remove the boom operator so that his rule was obeyed by everyone. Martin reveals this in the DVD commentary See more »
