When I see Steve Austin starring in a film, I immediately think direct to video action. This is exactly what this is but it is a strong action film. The movie packs some decent action and fight scenes. Steve Austin knows how to kick some ass and he does it quite well in this film. Michael Jai White is also one bad-ass dude, especially with his Red Rider BB-Gun. Michael Jai also knows his martial arts quite well and uses it a bit.

The story is about a LAPD SWAT Team that gets sent to a training exercise in an abandoned hangar and of course things goes terribly wrong. They find themselves up against two rival gangs. Things get out of control and it is up to them to kick ass and save the day. The story is pretty basic but has good pace and doesn’t slow down.

The extras aren’t anything special. The one cool feature that I enjoyed was called “Fight Sequence” which feature every single fight scene in the whole movie into three minutes. Of course they have the film’s trailer and lastly the feature “Inside Tactical Force” was a decent 10 minute feature looking behind the scenes at the film.
