Mathew Hemmings and his brother Nathan are both veteran LAPD detectives who race cars when theyre off the clock. Mathew, the laid-back optimistic brother, uses his street-racing contacts not only as informants but also to help him transform his beat-up old Italian sports car into a winner that inspires kids to stay on the right side of the law. Nathan, the bone-breaking martial arts brother with the German sports car, sees criminals as vermin and his city as a steaming cesspool.   

 

Its hard to prove Nathan wrong, when five years into a mob truce, the Italian Mafia attempts to re-assert its dominance by chasing a triad member through a shopping mall, fearing for his life, he heads to the roof, with nowhere else to run he tries his best to fight them off, he is badly beaten and shot before being hurled from the building, plunging through the glass roof of a busy restaurant below where hes impaled on an ice sculpture.

 

After a spate of killings, the triads begin to investigate who is behind breaking the truce, they have their suspicions, but need proof before their boss will take action. The triads greatest strength is their patients and will only strike when the time is right, but when they do they are ruthless. The remaining triad members pick their moment to strike back in what soon becomes a long, bloody war revolving around an immense shipment of drugs and a missing lottery ticket. 

 

After secretly being filmed making love to a woman, one of the mafia bosses, Tony Vanducci, smells some sweet food cooking, they come downstairs to a wonderfully prepared meal waiting for them with an expensive bottle of champagne on ice. They sit down and begin to eat the food when the TV automatically comes on, they watch as the chief is preparing the food, in horror he sees the meat used is one of his guard dogs. The woman screams hysterically and Tony begins to heave, he goes towards the telly and tries ripping it off the wall, whilst doing so, he sees that someone was recording them whilst in the bedroom making love, he realises how easily he could have been killed, sparks fly as the TV finally gets ripped out and hurled across the room.

 

The triads, Ling and Ziy have captured a few mafia members and as always they use torturing technics to gain relevant information, one man is tied to a table, he is swearing and cursing at them, he tells them in no certain words where to go and that hes not telling them nothing. Ling tells the man thats what your friend said and points to a man next to him that has had all his limbs amputated and laid next to him, he looks over and sees a samurai sword swoop down onto his friend, he looks away and curses some more, he still refuses to talk. Ling points to another man who has had his tongue cut out for cursing their boss, the man watches as his friend is passed through a sword, before the sword is half way through he is telling them what they want to know.

Nathan has no time for polite police work, criminals on the street arent polite, so the way he sees it, he cant let his guard slip not even for a minute. We see Nathan at his worst, the day Matthew takes a bullet. Nathan reflexively takes revenge by breaking the assailants bones, using unique martial art moves, before handcuffing him to a rail. He is faced with a decision to take him in or to turn a blind eye. But as Matthew continues to fight for his life, Nathan cradles him in his arms, for the first time questioning himself and his assumptions about the world, fearing he has not been what an officer of the law should be.
