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.

Reminds me of "The Shield"
29 August 2019 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

This film is obviously a TV movie made as a pilot for a series. It reminded me of "The Shield" which was a gritty detective series 2002 to 2008 with Michael Chiklis and Walton Googins among others, or more recently "Shades of Blue" with Ray Liotta and Jennifer Lopez. It's a little over the top but it has good acting and nice photography. There is also an attempt at character development. It's a lot better than many of the shows now on TV.
