Entertaining

  • Conclusion: The Sweeney of the modern day. He's a rogue copper who does what he wants, he'll do anything to catch his man and will stop at nothing till he does. The story is simple, it's hardly original but does enough to keep you entertained.

  • Conclusion: We went into watching the Sweeney with low expectations, but this film delivers! Winstone is fantastic, the one liners are always well timed, great use of the camera throughout London. 9/10 easy.

  • Conclusion: Unimaginative,predictable story, with a horrible,constant soundtrack (trying to copy the soundtrack of batman - the dark knight rises,but failing). And Ray Winestone - playing...Ray winestone.

Has the director ever watched The Sweeney on TV?

  • Conclusion: I was so looking forward to seeing this film. What a disappointment it was. It had none of the slick humour and banter of the John Thaw Dennis Waterman originals. The plot was ridiculous. I like Ray Winstone but he was rubbish in this.

Appalling Film

  • Conclusion: An appalling film in any format. Even the great Ray Winston can't hold this film together. It doesn't have one foot in reality and is too laughable for any of it to be taken even as fantasy or escapeism. A travesty of a reinvention of a great series.

For a new generation

  • Summary: This will not only (most likely) appeal to the original fans but to a whole new generation. Very gritty, not to be taken seriously, it is a great dramatic action film. Also loved the soundtrack :)

Oi Oi, Saveloy!

  • Conclusion: Don't believe any bad reviews, this is one class film. The idea from the past, all new everything else. Great plot, loads of action and gritty scenes. Gripping from start to end. Loved it, don't you miss it.

Recreated the spirit

Marnico, play.com
20 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Probably the only thing I'd like to add is Nick Love painstakenly kept the spirit of the original series which I was lucky enough to watch when it first came out. The attitudes, the cars and the blaggy villains, all there but modernized.

Worst film ever

redsquare, play.com
1 February 2013
  • Conclusion: This is beyond doubt the worst film i have ever seen in my life. The acting is the real crime. The plot is paper thin. The realism is non existent. Avoid like plague. This is garbage. Ed wood would be ashamed of directing this

AWFUL EXPERIENCE - I WONT GET THOSE HOURS BACK

DouglasBunn, play.com
1 February 2013
  • Conclusion: This film has a has a great title sequence which give the impression of a sophisticated thriller! After that it was all down hill. Plan-B looks way too young to be a copper. More like he's fresh from the womb! Too young, not convincing, badly acted.
