It is always very difficult to migrate the small screen success to the big screen, but here this cult '70s cop drama really gets the treatment that it deserves. The first offering is laden with many actors now household names, and shows a young Lynda Bellingham as a high class call girl (difficult to imagine after 'All creatures great and small!) with Barry Foster (Van der Valk) as her pimp and ruthless press agent for a Government minister. The action is fast and opens up the characters of Regan and Carter Well. Colin Welland also makes an appearance, as he did in the second series.
It is in the follow up Sweeney 2 however that it all comes right with the dream team of Kennedy Martin, Clegg and Childs giving the characters all they should have. In addition The music score by Tony Hatch adds a lot to the suspense. The language is more in keeping with gritty coppers on a serious crime investigation, plus there is gratutious nudity so popular in the period.
The Action is always interesting and realistic, and putting the two films back to back is the best way to see the developments and realisation of the scripts and characters. Highly recommended, paricularly if you have the video versions already as these editions are far superior. The 5 star rating given is in the context of Sweeney productions rather than as a world cinema ranking. Its' appeal is more to fans than the general public
