Rodney King's Video beating was still fresh on the minds of many when this Made-for Cable Movie was Produced. It is a rather engaging, but somewhat overdone, Story of a Gang of Racists Cops who operate more or less with impunity. In fact, they are so much out in the open it strains credulity.
However, given this Setup, its up to a Black Cop to do something about it. He asks for some help from the FBI and they hesitate, so He feels on His own. But things change and there is some over the top brutal behavior by the Gang and a few Suspenseful gun battles before things really get resolved.
This has a strong Cast and is generally a well done look in on the corruption and Racists behavior of some Men in Blue. But although Entertaining enough, there is quite a bit here that is contrived to the extreme. Best looked at without too much criticism concerning what does happen and what is shown happening.
