DIRECT ACTION is a suspense action
drama that follows a day in the life of a police sergeant on
the Direct Action Unit who must come to terms with fighting crime
not only on the streets, but also within his department. Who
do you trust and where do you turn when your life is in danger
and your colleagues are the cause?
Fifteen years on the force, police
Sergeant Frank Gannon (Dolph Lundgren) spent the last three years
on the Direct Action Unit (DAU) task force, fighting gang crime
and corruption. With the highest arrest record in the department,
two Medals of Valor, the youngest officer ever to make detective,
and the son of a cop himself, Gannon does everything with integrity.
Although the Direct Action Unit
appears to have been the saving force in city over the past few
years - fighting against theft, larceny, conspiracy, extortion
and murder - evidence is coming to light that some members of
the DAU were up to much more than keeping the city streets safe.
The Direct Action Unit task force has been under intense federal
investigation for 8 months on suspicions of stealing drugs and
money, the jailing of innocent people, and possibly murder. At
the end of his shift on this day, Gannon is to testify at a federal
grand jury about the DAU, which is making his bosses extremely
That morning, Gannon is suddenly
partnered with detective trainee Billie Ross, and is asked to
show her the ropes. With little experience on the streets Ross
is thrilled to start her two-week detective training period with
the legendary Gannon. This not good news for Gannon, as Ross
is hardly the experienced back up he needs on the toughest day
of his career.
