"This is the coolest movie I've ever seen! The first time I ever saw this was on HBO (this movie *I believe* also goes by the name, 'Renegade Force')...and after that, I would stay up until all hours of the night just to catch it again! First of all, I love Robert Patrick!...If you liked him in Terminator 2, than you'll love him in this! He plays a disgruntled S.W.A.T captain, who uses his team to clean up a town full of prostitution and corruption, but ultimately goes over the edge and loses any of the values that he has....although he is SUPPOSED to come off as a cold vigilante, you can't help rooting for the bad guys in this...the hero to his anti-hero, Michael Rooker (guy from Days of Thunder)...is also somewhat of a prude...which helps you not feel guilty about the chaos that stems from the his 'rogue' squad of swat team members' brutal killing...but asside of that, this movie is still AMAZING...the weapons, equipment, costumes, and manuevers in this are great (This movie used actual FBI equipment, guns, and advisors)...this film is extrememly violent, but almost in a mezmarizing way...the action scene's in this are so amazingly exlposive, and so soberingly realistic, that it will make any other movie with swat teams in it look like Pokemon...if you like automatic weapons and explosions, then this is the movie for you! If you like any movie concerning law enforcement, or just great action movies in general, then this is the movie for you! Buy it, no matter how much it costs...you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!"

"Great movie. Its about a SWAT team that gets fed-up with their hands being tied at work, and the outbreak of crime, and want to set the record straight. They accomplish this by going out on their own, and adminishering a little bit of street justice, or vigilanteism if you will. If you like shoot-em ups, this is the one for you."
Pretty good movie

"This movie was on HBO as Renegade Force. I thought that it was a very good movie. It is very violent but I would not consider the violence gratuitous. This movie also brings up the point of whether it is moral to kill people who slip through the cracks of the law. The "renegade force" begins by killing a porn guy ,who is also involved in producing child pornography, and his partners. It is really hard to see the problem with this. The movie made me think a lot and is worth seeing."
Highly recommended ... to be reproduced

"The film has a nice idea, I knew it as soon as I saw its poster. S.W.A.T vs. HRT, what a brilliant action sequence would be seen in the film! But it failed. The producer had to write it out that real SWAT members and tactics were showed in this movie, or I would not know that!
There was 1 out of the 3 stars for the idea."
A surprisingly good Independant movie!

"I thought this move might just be another cheap,boring,repetitive action move with bad acting and poor action.But,although it's not brilliant,this is a pleasing film! Michael Rooker & Robert Patrick are both very good in the lead roles and Louis Mandylor shows great potential in a fine support performance.The film was made under the supervision of real SWAT teams and therefore the film's realism content is outstanding. It has very good action blending with genuine drama. I have to say,it also features the coolest and most interesting opening credits I've probably ever seen!"
