"Feels like an introduction in the form of a two-hour pilot, setting us up for the squad's weekly adventures, a la CSI or Miami Vice" Ray Winstone has made a damn good living for himself, playing tough guys on the wrong side of the law. Think Sexy Beast and The Departed,for instance. In the new film The Sweeney, it could be said that once again, he's on the wrong side of the law, but in this case, it's because he's playing a cop. I say that it's wrong because this is little more than a feature-length Law & Order episode, a procedural that's gritty and grotty by turns, but nothing particularly special. »
