In Los Angeles, the criminals are one step away from taking over the city. Drugs and guns are all over the streets. It'll take a special kind of cop to put an end to it all. Max Dire (Mario Van Peebles) is a special kind of cop, which is why he's invited to join an elite squad - a secret police unit - authorized to do whatever it takes to put an end to crime. Their leader, Adam Garou (Bruce Payne) has a secret method for dealing with crooks, a serum which he injected into his gang of rogue cops that gives them an extraordinary strength and speed. A drug that gives them the power of wolves, and a deadly appetite for crime. Max is suspicious of Garou's renegade police force, but is soon seduced into joining them by their most beautiful member, Casey Spencer (Patsy Kensit). As Max soon discovers, there's a dark side to Garou's detective work and he must decide if he's going to run with the pack or stand against them. Either way, by the full eclipse, the streets will run with blood.
