Storyline

When LAPD elite cop Billy Beckett is traumatized by his partner's death, Joseph Armstrong recruits him for his secret Special Investigation Squad, an elite quartet which gets a very free hand to hunt down and eliminate some of the worst criminals which would escape justice. Despite colleague Gabriel's suspicion and a reporter who hired a private detective to expose their 'police abuse', he proves his value in the fight against ruthless gangster Vic, who sacrifices even his weakling brother for a major diamond robbery.

its may be a failed TV series pilot but i thought it was great.
23 January 2010 | by vhs1999See all my reviews

OK the movie maybe low budget and it also may be a failed TV series pilot but that does not stop me from liking it. i dunno what it is but I've got this thing for low budget productions. the movie was set around the special investigations section which is a team of cops that are like a hit squad. most crooks they gather evidence on are most likely back out on the street the next day but this sis team solves that problem by taking them out. the actors all did a good job and it wasn't fast paced but you could follow the story. the movie reads like a failed TV series pilot but just look at it as a standalone movie and you most likely will enjoy it.
