Jack Regan is a slobbish, old style cop whose unsubtle methods usually get results, to the annoyance of internal affairs officer Lewis, who would be even more annoyed if he knew that Regan was having an affair with his young wife, policewoman Nancy. After Regan disobeys orders and a shoot-out in central London following a bank hold-up ends in carnage, he is stripped of office and briefly imprisoned. However, thanks to the loyalty of his young protege George Carter and a little string pulling from his superior Frank Haskins, Regan is released to bring down the villains in a gun battle at Gravesend marina, ensuring the continued existence of his department - the Sweeney.

This was ordinary to say the least, put the moral of the story aside, this is simply a badly directed film with a horrible script. The acting was good for the content they were given, the film broadcast the plot twist a mile away. I really think they didn't know what they wanted to do with the film gritty British law or glossy American buddy film. Either option they failed miserably, about half way through I thought it had become a parody film. Saw it at BIFF opening night and the laughter throughout the film hinted that everyone else felt the same way. this is not a good lo fashion entertainment film, don't get me wrong I love the Die Hard franchise, likewise I loved Layer Cake, and a heap of other great British crime films. this is just not one of them and there is nothing here worth watching...
