Movie Summary:

A SWAT team is led into an apartment building to capture a notorious crime lord. Six floors into the raid, they are given away by a tenant. The crime lord who was silently monitoring, set out a bounty on their heads, giving any tenant that catches and kills the officers permanent residence.

One by one the officers are killed until about four of them are left. One of the crime lord’s body guards was the brother to one of the officers and set about finding him. They eventually meet up and have a small talk before going their separate ways.

When the two body guards return; the police officer’s brother is confronted as his boss saw him pull his brother into the room and the other guard is placed in a room to kill him. His brother hears a noise and goes to check it out and finds his brother and then gets into a fight with the second body-guard.

The two manage to kill him and set out to find the others and leave the building. The lieutenant that brought them there finds the crime lord and arrests him before killing a fellow officer and also the crime lord.

The brothers follow each other to the gate, the lieutenant is arrested and the officers walk out of the building but his brother chose to stay in the building.

Review:

This is a purely action movie, has a bit of graphic killings so not for the squeamish. This movie barely has a plot it is basically 101 minutes of killing. Movie is not in English so subtitles are needed
