John, the leader of the DEA's Special Operations Team, leads his team on a raid on a cartel warehouse. One the members was killed. The team steals USD10 million and hides it in the sewer before blowing up the rest to cover their tracks. When they return later to retrieve the money, it was gone - apparently was taken by someone. 

Somehow the agency gets the wind of the theft and the whole team was suspended while it was being investigated. After months of investigation with no confession from any of the member, the team is reinstated. But the members have changed over time, each is suspicious of another and constantly on the verge of a fight among them.

When one by one of the members were being killed in a cartel revenge style, the remaining members become very conscious and starts to suspect that they are being targeted for the cartel raid. 

Caroline Brentwood and her partner Darius Jackson of the Homicide Department are assigned to the cases. When they found the cartel member bodies inside a lake and the bodies were dated before the first killing, they realised that the killings might have been carried out by someone else and framing the cartel for it.

Who takes the money and who kills the members? Was it for revenge or for the money?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.2/ 5.0 The movie is at least quite entertaining to me. The story-telling keeps me guessing who did what to whom. 

The answers came a bit too early to my liking - it would have been a better plot if the answers were revealed at the end of the movie. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 Everyone delivered a fairly good performance. But I agree that this one is quite gruesome.

Will I Watch It Again: Not in a very near future but I don't mind watching it again. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
