An elite DEA team raids the safe house of a drug cartel and hide $10 million in the plumbing. When they go back to retrieve the money it is not there. The team is under investigation for the missing $10 million. Then after a couple months the investigation is lifted. The team trains together again and then celebrates at a strip club. Then one of the team is murdered. He wakes up in his RV on railroad tracks. Then a second team member is nailed to the ceiling. The third team member is gunned down at his remote cabin. There is a female City of Atlanta investigator in charge of the murders. After investigating the cartel angle, the twisted truth comes to light.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sam Worthington both appeared in the Terminator franchise, although they did not appear together in Terminator Salvation (2009). See more »
Just after Floyd gives John Wharton his gun, badge and credentials back, John drives his black Silverado pickup truck into a gravel parking lot. He backs in and parks with his front wheels turned on an angle, but in the next shot, his front wheels are straight. See more »
Ultimately, this is just another Arnie film although in all fairness it has a bit more substance than usual.
The film deals with the fall from grace of a decorated veteran of special police and as the plot develops it becomes a guessing game whether the main character is corrupt or simply his luck has run out.
In many ways a typical action film with a slightly better plot than we are accustomed to, although the Hollywood exaggeration was ever present. Seeing a whole team of experienced special operation agents are being wiped out as if they are schoolchildren lowered the experience but then I recalled that this is an Schwarzenegger movie so I just sat back and enjoyed the action.
