Based off of a one time T.V. show, two Los Angeles S.W.A.T. officers Jim Street and Brian Gamble were sent in to foil an extremely violent bank robbery. Although they thwarted the robbery, they shot a hostage in the process. Street was suspended from S.W.A.T. while Gamble was fired altogether. After 6 months, a veteran S.W.A.T. officer, Daniel Harrelson or "Hondo", is told to assemble a S.W.A.T. team for his division. He chooses other S.W.A.T. officers as well as 3 rookies. However, after they pass the S.W.A.T. training, they receive a message that a French crime boss, known as Alex Montell is trying to escape from prison. This will not be easy to prevent, especially after Montell promises $100 Million to his rescuers.Written by
The tune that the team sings at the table, in the film's trailer, is the theme from the original television series. See more »
When Hondo and Street are talking in the garage, Street says: "Fuller will never sign off on it". Hondo replies "You let me deal with that paper-pushing PUNK". He originally said "prick" and was just dubbed over. See more »
I'm not sure if this movie is intentionally one big joke, but I found it absolutely hilarious. It sports some of the worst writing I have ever seen. The whole thing is laughable, even the french bad guys are played by Italian mobsters!
"I've done a few stewardesses." "Just a few."
Some guy points a gun at Olivier Martinez's character's head. "What are you gonna do, shoot me?"
Even the acting is bad, which is surprising, since Samuel L. Jackson and Collin Farrel are usually pretty good. But none of them have any on-screen chemistry, which takes away from an already-bad movie.
Okay. This movie is either police-movie bile or satirical genius. I am not sure. But I'm pretty sure it's the former.
