Director: Clark Johnson
Sgt. “Hondo” Harrelson is brought back to set up a new SWAT team with the purpose of bringing some much-needed good publicity to the Los Angeles Police Department. He recruits whom he wants and sets about molding them into the ultimate civilian law enforcement team.
A well-made action thriller with some strong elements but it never quite breaks out of the above-average stable. Most obvious mistake was relegating the movie’s strongest idea (an offer of $100 million to anyone who breaks him out of police custody by an international bad guy, though seen before in Bond movie Licence to Kill) to the final act of the movie and spending the first two acts predictably following the Top Gun model.
This movie contains a single sexual swear word, mild swear words, an offensive gesture, adult dialogue and extreme melee violence, gun violence, inferred knife violence, unpleasant and mildly gory scenes.
