If you’re going to do a remake of an iconic and beloved TV cop show from way back when, here’s a tip: don’t get Nick Love (Outlaw, The Business) to write or direct it; Another tip: don’t cast rap-artist-turned-actor Ben Drew (Aka Plan B) or grizzled hard-man thespian Ray Winstone as your two leads Carter & Regan when it’s quite obvious they have no chemistry whatsoever;  And one other tip: don’t look to the dismal and downright awful The Sweeney for any kind of inspiration whatsoever. »
