Tearing up the streets of London, The Sweeney is a stylish and exhilarating action thriller proving sometimes you have to act like a criminal to catch a criminal. Directed by Nick Love and based on the popular 1970s U.K. television show of the same name, the U.K. box office smash (opening theatrically in the U.S. this March) is based on the Sweeney Flying Squad, London's elite crime-fighting force - a branch of the Metropolitan Police specializing in tackling armed robbery and violent crime. Led by legendary Detective Jack Regan (Ray Winstone) and his loyal partner, the group is not afraid to use old school, bare-knuckle tactics to bring down the modern underworld. Now, with a master criminal on the loose and a major bank heist in progress, Regan will do whatever it takes to get the job done, even if that means defying the orders of his boss (Damian Lewis) and taking the law into his own hands.
The Sweeney was released March 1st, 2013 and stars Ray Winstone, Ben Drew, Hayley Atwell, Steven Mackintosh, Paul Anderson, Alan Ford, Damian Lewis, Caroline Chikezie. The film is directed by Nick Love.
