FOR MAYHEM, BRUTALITY, AND PURE SAVAGERY, I GIVE IT TEN STARS!
If you're looking for a film that provides a penetrating glimpse into the complexities of the human condition, this ain't it. But I guess you figured that out from the poster. For those of you with the basest of instincts and a taste for the low brow, you'll definitely get what you want, and I've based my rating on that criteria. Get a bunch of mean people, arm them to the hilt with machine guns, throw them together like a bunch of pit bulls in a cage, and what do you get? SYNDICATE SMASHER. For you gun porn addicts, this is your Shangri-La. I hope you get your fix. I haven't seen this much blood since I watched the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Notwithstanding, it did have some good actors and some compelling characters, albeit with far-fetched motives. Why would a high ranking police detective conduct an illegal bugging of a criminal suspect? Doesn't that constitute Illegal search and seizure? She also later attempts to shoot her boss. Isn't that attempted murder? The actress who played that part was actually pretty good. I think it was more a lack of research on the part of the writers. Anyways, why am I obsessing over that? This is an action B-movie. Don't take it too seriously. Get some popcorn, kickback, and have fun. For mayhem, brutality, and pure savagery, I give it ten stars.
