    • Synopsis
    • After a sure-fire narcotics bust goes horribly wrong, resulting in exactly zero
      arrests, DEA Agent TRENT MITCHELL has had enough. For years, he has chased a drug lord
      named DAVID “DIAMANTE” PELAYO, only to be outsmarted at every turn. Worse, the DEA
      turns on him, and won’t allow further investigation. Against their orders, he tracks down his
      informant, a police chief in a small border community called Los Rojos. Unfortunately, the
      police chief has been outed, and Diamante and his men murder him.
      His replacement is LENA MENDEZ, a woman with equal
      parts beauty and fearlessness. After Lena dresses him down for putting her chief in danger, Trent
      returns to El Paso to lick his wounds and come up with a new plan to take on Diamante.
      His first stop is a federal prison, where his old buddy MARTIN CRANE is set for release. Years earlier, while in the DEA, Crane avenged his family who
      were killed by the cartels. The DEA left him to rot in jail, and he’s anxious to do anything that
      might piss them off.
      Going after Diamante on his home turf of Mexico is not a two-person job, so they assemble a
      team. MARCELES, RINEAU, FRANCHESCA and HUNTER comprise the mismatched crew,
      each chosen for their various skills and levels of expertise.
      They kidnap Diamante’s accountant and press him for details about the empire, knowing that to
      truly hurt Diamante they have to go after his money. The cartel hits back, leading to a
      spectacular shoot out and chase through the desert. Their exploits attract the attention of the DEA
      and a United States security contractor named FAIRBANKS, who abducts Crane and Trent from
      Mexico. Crane and Trent fight their way out and return to Mexico to finish what they have
      started.
      Movies simply don’t get more exciting than “Red Squad.” Directed by Alexander Witt whose
      flair for action makes for an entertaining adventure in which good triumphs over evil and an
      unlikely hero emerges and inspires.
