My impressions on The Sweeney

  "It's The Sweeney... and ya' just got nicked!"

"You have to act like a criminal to catch one!"
I went to the movies a few nights ago and watched The Sweeney. Right from the get-go the movie is action packed. The one thing to keep in mind is that this movie is set in Britain so some of the words they use can be difficult to understand if you're not familiar with the vernacular. Regardless, those moments are few and far between.

The story wasn't breathtaking but it wasn't boring either. It follows a special unit of the police called The Sweeney whose methods of dealing with criminals are "unique" to say the least. Those of you who are are action junkies will not be disappointed as the firefights are very well done. The acting of the characters could have been a little better. There were times when it looked like they were trying too hard to make the characters believable. It's clear that the budget for this movie was pretty low.

I wonder if they're gonna shoot me?
I still enjoyed myself and would recommend this movie for anyone who likes a good police story and lots of action.
