After a mismanaged hostage crisis, a deranged boyfriend (Robert Patrick, Terminator 2) turns out to be a sociopathic supervillain--and he's got his sights set on S.W.A.T. hotshot Paul Cutler (Gabriel Macht, The Spirit), the guy he blames for his girlfriend's death. From there, S.W.A.T.: Firefight turns into a cat-and-mouse thriller with the sociopath (who turns out to be a mysterious military "asset," the kind of super-ultra-undercover agent who does the really dirty work overseas) stalking Cutler as Cutler tries to train his team. Several action scenes cut frequently to a first-person-shooter perspective, leading one to suspect that the script was also lifted from a video game, as not much of it makes much sense. A tough-as-nails-yet-also-sexy-and-tank-top-wearing chick (Shannon Kane) is brought on to the team to keep the abundance of testosterone and gunpowder from getting too homoerotic. Macht is bland, Patrick is terse, the dialogue is generic--but as straight-to-DVD action movies go, it could be a lot worse. The action jumps along, the scenes are predictable but not dull, and Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3) has a cameo, meaning S.W.A.T.: Firefight features, for no particular reason, not one but two evil terminators. --Bret Fetzer
