A big screen modern-day revamp of the gritty 70s TV series. Ray Winstone and Ben Drew (aka Plan B) star as Regan and Carter, the cop duo played by John Thaw and Dennis Waterman in the original version. When an armed robbery at a jewellery store causes Regan's investigations into a potential bank robbery to come to a standstill, he believes old enemy Francis Allen (Paul Anderson) is responsible. However, having no evidence against him leaves the Flying Squad officer powerless to bring him in, but when Regan hears that Allen is now in business with a well-known Serbian criminal, he becomes determined to catch the culprits whatever the cost. Tearing up the streets of London, "The Sweeney" is an exhilarating action thriller boasting a terrific British cast including Damien Lewis, Hayley Atwell and Steven Mackintosh.
