The time is the early-to-mid-1960s, the height of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. An unknown aircraft approaches North America from Europe. American bombers of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) are scrambled to their fail safe points near Russia. The bombers have orders not to proceed past their fail safe points without receiving a special attack code. The original "threat" is proven to be innocuous and recall orders are issued. However, due to a technical failure, the attack code is transmitted to Group Six, which consists of six Vindicator supersonic bombers and four escort fighters. Colonel Grady, the head of the group, tries to contact Omaha to verify the fail-safe order (called Positive Check), but due to Soviet radar jamming, Grady cannot hear Omaha. Concluding that the attack order and the radar jamming could only mean nuclear war, Grady commands Group Six towards Moscow, their intended destination.

Vincent Moon (Ice-T) represents a crime syndicate that just built a maximum security prison which is scheduled to open the next day. Rather than killing them individually, the crime syndicate brings together 100 people who have in some way wronged the syndicate, provides them with weapons, and gives them a choice: fight or die. The assassins are given six hours to eliminate the competition, and told that the last three will walk away with 10 million dollars. Various agreements and alliances are made as the killers battle for survival and the money.

Brick Bardo (Thom Mathews) is out to avenge the death of his brother, who was set up in a scandal involving illegal fight fixing in a kickboxing circuit and was killed before he could expose the true culprits. Along with his vicious femme fatale Max (Marianne Taylor), he manages to track down four former fighters who were involved in the scandal and had sufficient motive to want his brother dead: janitor and father, Billy Munoz (Benny "The Jet" Urquidez); Connie Angel (Hope Marie Carlton); arrogant and brash Brent Caldwell (Dale Jacoby); and powerhouse, Mike Johnson (Thunderwolf). He has them drugged, kidnapped and brought to an empty fighting arena where he plans to fight them all to the death in front of each other until either one of them kills him or one of them is revealed as his brother's murderer. As Brick engages each of them in one on one combat, it becomes clear that not everything is what it seems and not everyone is as innocent as they claim to be.
