I actually prefer this to the original. Ray is superb in his adaptation. I have watched this more than once. Gritty, hard hitting and gutsy and deliciously modern.
Cannot rate it highly enough.

VINE VOICEon 15 September 2012
I loved the 1970's TV series "The Sweeney" with its visceral tales of rough cops fighting armed robbers and various other criminals in London. The Regan/Carter relationship was key to its success with John Thaw and George Carter complimenting each other perfectly. This movie brings the concept of "The Sweeney" up to date, however the cops are much rougher,more foul mouthed and violent and the Regan/Carter chemistry isn't as good. Ray Winstone plays the central character,Regan, and he comes across as more of a criminal thug than a cop- why would he want to be on the side of law and order ? Carter is more of a low profile ,charmless presence not averse to a bit of brutality himself. The members of the Sweeney are a PC mixture of women,blacks and Irish in contrast to Regan's totally un-PC persona. The film is entertaining and gripping from start to finish with a simple enough plot as the Sweeney try to catch a vicious group of armed robbers and killers. Theres a subplot of an Internal Affairs probe into the activities of the Sweeney which may result in them being closed down and an affair Regan is having with a glamourous member of his team (quite what this attractive brunette saw in the ageing ,pot bellied Regan beat me). There are plenty of car chases,shoot outs and beatings up to keep action fans excited in what is very much a lads type of film. Not one to take the girlfriend or wife along to see , I would aver !

just love ray Winston anyhow, however john thaw was a class act and very hard to follow. if your thinking this is anything like the original Sweeney you will be disappointed.

My husband and I both enjoyed the film. Ray Winstone is a great favorite of ours and we felt the film brought the characters up to date in a entertaining way.
