Plot Summary

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.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The presenters and production team from Top Gear assisted in planning and filming the car chase scene. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May were credited as stunt performers. See more »
Goofs During an arrest scene one of the characters says to the suspect: "You have the right to remain silent..." This is part of the Miranda used by United States law enforcement and would not be used in the UK. In Britain the caution that must be given at the time of an arrest begins with, "You do not have to say anything but it may harm your defense if you do not mention when questioned something that you later rely on in court..."

Quotes [Carter chases an armed robber and, after grappling with him, slams him against a partition wall in an office. As the robber draws a knife, two arms suddenly punch through the wall and grab the robber by the neck. Cut to a shot of Regan on the other side of the wall]
