An open and "SHUT IT!" case

MovieAddict, play.com
22 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Despite the shiney Apple computers, despite casting Ben (Plan B) Drew, despite the concession of feminism (police women can now punch suspects too) and despite wanting to look and be a UK based Heat, Nick Love's update of the 70's TV Cop show could have been made any time in the past 35 years. Ray Winstone stars as Jack Regan, head of the flying squad (Sweeney Todd, AKA Sweeney) and a man of supremely questionable methods.

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.

Appalling Film

19 March 2013
  • 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. The Americanisms such as reference to a warrant card as a 'badge' is so poor I don't know why I'm wasting words on it. Maybe it's to prevent someone else losing a couple hours of their lives they won't get back.

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
19 March 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. 4 stars because I may have expected too much but really ejoyed it all the same.

Worst film ever

redsquare, play.com
19 March 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.

AWFUL EXPERIENCE - I WONT GET THOSE HOURS BACK

DouglasBunn, play.com
19 March 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. Bit in the bar was cliche and over the top and to add that my eyes were in extreme pain and watching this appalingly directed peice of non cinematic trash!!!! Nick Love's movies are all in the same league.....

"..YOUR NICKED!!.."

sdx800, play.com
19 March 2013
  • Conclusion: You don't need to be any fan of the series to love this, a good fun Brit action romp, from start to finish they tear up London with cool shootouts and car chases, the story is pretty straight forward and plays out with an electric cast of talent and has director Nick Loves touch on it, certainly worth a watch, its not brilliant but still damn good fun.
