User Reviews

Cheapie effort has few thrills
23 December 2012 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

I strongly suspect that this direct-to-DVD sequel to the movie S.W.A.T. was set primarily in Detroit not because the screenwriters thought it would add color, but because at the time the movie was filmed, Detroit was offering a generous tax rebate to movies that filmed in the city. Actually, the Detroit backdrop *does* add a little color, giving the movie an interesting background you seldom see in movies. Unfortunately, that's about all that's positive to say about this movie. It's a cheap-looking effort. The low budget is no excuse - I've seen some amazing-looking movies shot on low budgets. Robert Patrick (what happened to his career?) is pretty much wasted in his monotone part. The worst thing, however, is how boring and tedious the whole enterprise feels. There's hardly any action, and the action sequences are brief and unexciting. Apart from the backdrop, the only other positive thing to say about this in-name-only sequel is that it makes the disappointing original movie look better.
