Loud and lackluster police actioner about an elite Los Angeles anti-crime unit (including Colin Farrell and Samuel L. Jackson) assigned to guard an international drug kingpin en route to a federal penitentiary. Based on the popular 1970s TV series, the film, directed by Clark Johnson, is an adolescent boys' playground, which, while drawing a distinction between "good" and "bad" guys, treats violence as entertainment, eliciting its thrills through tedious shoot 'em ups and mind-numbing crash-and-smash sequences. Much violence, some profanity and crude sexual language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
