The Sweeney Reviews

[It] feels a lot like an American-made cop movie circa 1990.

Based on a '70s British program, this is a bombastic effort that, while not successful, is still as bracing as a cold pint.

Winstone is, as always, perfectly believable as a tough guy and after a slow start - due, somewhat, to American ears adjusting to those problematic accents - the film hits a groove.

Maybe it worked in the '70s; it's too worn to work these days. Ray Winstone needs to find better rocks to chew on.

The movie blithely repeats most of the clichés of the American badass-cop flick, only in impenetrable Cockney.

This might just be a British thing that we don't understand - literally.

Mr. Winstone chews on this Cockney cops-and-robbers caper with foulmouthed glee.

A briskly involving British crime entertainment of the old school. You've seen the type, and more than once, but the genre still has enough juice to take us for a ride.

[Winstone] radiates such a threatening vibe that he doesn't have to say a word to make your hair stand on end. And his grim, glowering work in "The Sweeney" ranks up there with his best.

The only thing more tiresome than a gritty reboot of a TV series is a gritty reboot of an unfamiliar TV series.

Somewhere in the laundry list of clichés, there is a movie here that we have already seen and forgotten.

Regardless of whether you're a longtime devotee or not, you'll be left saying, "This is The Sweeney? I've been rooked."

It's Winstone who keeps 'The Sweeney' on the right side of duff.
