    Offensive on every level. There has to be something wrong with a film that makes you want the villains to be victorious and the so called good guys to be viciously killed. Ray Winston playing himself is more reprehensible than usual and I didn't think that could be possible. Film making at its nadir and British cinema to be ashamed of. The TV series from which this moronic mess springsOffensive on every level.

The TV series from which this moronic mess springs from should sue. A socially irresponsible piece of crap that Shames everyone involved. Expand

    If you think this is a feel good british gangster movie, don't ebven bother to watch it. The Sweeney is a underbelly kicked in the butt feeling movie. Other than Nick Love.

    Up until the very very end (which uncorks a CLASSIC cop cliché that seemed long dead by now), The Sweeney is straight dumb procedural, no chaser.

    The Sweeney—a new British police drama—feels a lot like an American-made cop movie circa 1990.

    I don’t know how many sex scenes featuring Winstone and Atwell you can handle, but the movie breaches my limit, which is a firm zero.
