'Tactical Force'
(Steve Austin, Michael Jai White, et al / DVD / R / 2011 / Magnolia Home Entertainment)

Overview: A training exercise for the LAPD SWAT Team goes terribly wrong when they find themselves pitted against two rival gangs while trapped in an abandoned Hangar.

DVD Verdict: Is this any good? Should it have been called 'Tactical Farce'?! Well, yes and no, in that order, luckily! The story revolves around Tate (Austin) who is the leader of the L.A.P.D. SWAT Team. Consisting of Hunt (Michael Jai White), Jannard (Lexa Doig) and Blanco (Steve Bacic), the story unfolds that after their latest hostage mission goes out of control the team gets suspended.

Forced to undergo retraining classes, including an exercise at an abandoned hangar, what the SWAT Team doesn't know is that two rival gangs are also in the same building looking for a suitcase that only one man named Kenny (Michael Eklund) knows where to locate it.

So, after the rival gangs realize that the SWAT Team is in the building but don't have any ammo, each one calls in backup as it's a hunt to not only take out the SWAT Team, but also find the suitcase before the other crew does. Realstic = nope! Fun = hell ya! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
