I missed this in the cinema but, being a lover of the great Samuel L, thought I'd give it a punt. Yes, it is formulaic. Yes, it is a colour by numbers. Yes, it is a "man picks team of misfits". BUT it does push all the right buttons.
Colin Farrell is busted from the SWAT team by his commander, somewhat unfairly. He's rejected by other members but chooses to take his punishment and try to get in.
Samuel L. is the "maverick" told to choose an elite team. The same commander hates him and wants him to fail but, you guessed, Sam proves him wrong.
The plot is serviceable. The acting is, in some cases, phoned in but the action is thumping.
