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 ...

Not worth watching unless your very stuck for something
5 December 2012 | by Francis CravenSee all my reviews

This film is a low budget fairly standard cops vs drug dealers. The cops being the generally decent type who are a bit rough but do what it takes to get the job done. While driving sports cars, wearing leather jackets with shades and torn jean. Main cop lives for his job and has nothing else. The bad guys are south American very rich drug dealing totally evil no redeeming features kill people for the slightest mistake kind. While living in big houses, driving sports cars and wearing expensive shirts or no shirts at all. With lots of women in bikini's on top and a evil/twisted sister thrown in for good measure. This film was made with a low budget and I want to like it because the actors appeared to be trying hard and I felt they cared. However it's hard to do that when they blow all the budget on fast cars and use every chance they can to put nipples on the screen. They have a strip club scene. I cannot recommend this film but I did feel slightly up beat by the end so I gave it a 5 instead of a 4. The current average of 4.4 is about right.
