August 8, 2003
A summer popcorn actioner that strictly follows procedure.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 8, 2003
A worn-out yawner of a cop thriller where even the cliches seem to realize how dated they are.

Why not just make an action film without pretending to be something more?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 14, 2003
The so-so summer movie syndrome continues with this poorly written but finely cast action-thriller based on yet another long-buried television series.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
August 7, 2003
A high-octane, brain-dead action picture that happens to feature cops as the characters.

We want a little more, get a little less, and keep thinking to ourselves that we should have known better.

August 9, 2003
The plot is an overstuffed and undercooked collection of cop conventions all wrapped around a frankly boring tale of one sneering and villainous Frenchman.

A noisy, standard-issue cop actioner.
August 7, 2003
Cliche reheated many times over

Is there an actual character in S.W.A.T.? A plot? A single intelligent or exciting sequence?
Full Review | Original Score: D
August 8, 2003
S.W.A.T. has blockbuster ambitions, but it develops characters and plot at a leisurely pace better suited to the small screen than the big one.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 8, 2003
Monotonous to the point of despair.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 9, 2003
S.W.A.T feels as aimless and baseless as the flashy bullets it shoots around in arbitrary fashion. So here's to saluting 2003's arrival of the insufferable S.W.A.T: a (S)olely (W)asteful (A)ction-packed (T)easer.

August 5, 2003
Think of a citywide version of John Carpenter's B-movie gem Assault on Precinct 13 and you've just imagined a better movie than S.W.A.T.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 7, 2003
When even the dynamic, charismatic, scenery-chomping Samuel L. Jackson seems so bored that he might as well be phoning in his performance, you know your action movie is a lifeless failure.

[N]ot... actively awful -- it's just sort of boring and completely predictable and a little bit laughable in its psychology.
