Customer Reviews

When the tactical force arrives, the European mob boss and his group hide.
Mark Turner
Despite being a real life tough guy, he tries too hard to be tough in the movie, and comes off as a joke.
Andrew Hernandez
I am a huge Steve Austin Fan and I was extremly dissappointed in this movie.

In the battle of Austin and Seagal I have come to believe Austin is the better actor. The movie starts out improbable as a gang of men in masks, rob a grocery store, take hostages and issue demands. A grocery store? Now I know they get robbed, but by a gang who has to share the loot? SWAT team leader Austin ignores proper police protocol and raids the place, killing the thieves, injuring the hostages, and doing huge amounts of property damage. To their surprise they are not rewarded, but are forced to take SWAT team training again. Michael Jai White, a young Carl Weathers with a BB gun is part of the team. Lexa Doig is a third member.

The upstairs of an abandoned(?) warehouse is set up with paper "bad guys" for the SWAT team to practice with simulation rounds. As fate would have it, two rival gangs are in the downstairs of the warehouse wanting "a case" which was stolen from them. One of the rival gangs learned to speak with bad Russian accents. I was waiting for one of them to say, "What about moose and squirrel."

The dialouge was mildly humorous at times, a step up from Austin's other movies. The plot left much to be desired. There were no real plot twists except at the very end...and then it didn't make much sense.

If you like Steve Austin movies, I think this was one of his better ones.

F-bomb, no sex. no nudity, no moose or squirrel.

I love a good action flick. I'm not talking about a well made movie that fills the giant screen with name brand recognized stars duking it out with the latest bad guy. I'm talking about movies that eventually are released straight to DVD or that play third billing at a drive in. Some of these offer pure entertainment. And then there are movies like this one.

TACTICAL FORCE features a group of S.W.A.T. type police officers who start the film off by stopping a grocery store robbery in progress. The only problem is that they use excessive force to the extreme to take down these ridiculous clowns. Between the damager to the robbers and the damage to the store, rather than receive a commendation these police men are assigned to retrain over the weekend at a special facility.

Led by Tate (WWE start Steve Austin), they head to the secluded location, an abandoned warehouse on the outskirts of town. Unbeknownst to those in charge, the warehouse is also where a European mobster has taken a snitch to get back a briefcase he stole from him. But wait, there's more. The snitch has made a call to another mob guy who the case was originally stolen from and he's on his way as well.

When the tactical force arrives, the European mob boss and his group hide. The tactical force makes its way through the upper floors of the building hitting targets with their paintball guns to try and improve their skills. An accidental sound downstairs leads them to check it out and one of their own is shot and killed. Weaponless they must try and find out who is down there and why.

Gunfights, double crosses and more double crosses, tough talk and ample enough brawls to keep the most ardent wrestling fan happy follow. Too bad there isn't enough plot to make it work.

I am really a fan of Stone Cold movies and for B rated movies he has some of the best. The action is good.

Who wrote this crap? Go about 1,000 miles past lame and you'll find this movie. Negative 10 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Not a strong outing for either Steve Austin or Michael Jai White, both of whom I enjoy when the productions are done right. For Stone Cold done right means 'Damage'. And for Mike that would be 'Undisputed II'.

This collaboration misses on several cylinders, but chugs along okay.

I'm the last film fan to go around pointing at the lack of realism of any movie. All film is a "lie" to one degree or another, and certainly action/adventures fall into the mythic realm of Escapism. Mind you, I love escapism, that's one of the main reasons why I enjoy watching them - to get away from the 'real'. I don't want to constantly bombard myself with daily, sometimes hourly, reports of the sick, twisted maelstrom of inhumanity against ourselves and our fellow earthly denizens. Films are a non-addictive and easy escape.

But even films have to have some foundation, some kernel of truth, allowing the audience to suspend belief. 'Tactical' failed this basic premise.

The first thing that strikes you is the laughable make-up of the SWAT team. Could you be more politically correct? One caucasian, one black, one hispanic and a female. All they're missing is the goofy computer guy in a wheelchair, preferably a wheelchair that has a built-in secret weapon. That would just about pacify the slobbering demographically perturbed amongst us.

Anybody with even the smallest scintilla of how police officers work will notice that there are usually something like a dozen special response team members at any given scene, sometimes as many as three dozen depending on the situation.
