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
When Hondo and Street assault the stationary subway train, there's a bright light shining on Street as he climbs the train, but Hondo's gun (and subsequently his torch) are pointed towards the ground. See more »
[last lines, sitting in the front passenger seat of a SWAT truck, after hearing a diamond robbery taking place over the radio, turns head back to see Street]
technically our watch has been over for twelve hours
[turns his head back to see Hondo, then turns his head back to face forward, smiles, while putting on his radio headset]
[sits up straight]
yeah, what the hell?
[grabs underneath his seat to get the rifle ready]

I did not want to see this movie in the theater because most rehash movies from old tv shows suck. I was so wrong, SWAT was an over whelming surprise, full of action, male hormone and a tough as nails Swat chick played by Michelle Rodriguez. Sam Jackson does his usual great performance, Colin Farrell is the hot shot swat cop who is turned on by his partner. LL Cool J is wasted as the cop that runs a lot. The ending scene could have better, it was the same fight at night most movies have to hide faces of the stuntmen. SWAT is great, lets hope for a Sequel. 7 out of 10
