Sweeney! | Sweeney 2 - Double Feature (DVD)
Directed by David Wickes
Sweeney! - When the sexy mistress of a cabinet minister is found dead of an apparent overdose, Detective Inspector Jack Regan (John Thaw) and Detective Sergeant George Carter (Dennis Waterman) shake off the booze and women to take on the case. But when the bullet-riddled bodies start to pile up in the London streets, Regan and Carter find themselves bollocks-deep in a murderous conspiracy involving doomed prostitutes, machine-gun assassins, multi-national oil companies and a cold-blooded bureaucrat who may be above the law. Barry Foster (Frenzy) and Ian Bannen (The Offence) co-star in this smash feature film that took all the hard-hitting thrills of television’s The Sweeney and blasted it onto cinema screens like never before. ••••• Sweeney 2 - Britain’s Toughest Cops Are Back and Tougher Than Ever! When the Chief of the Flying Squad is nicked on corruption charges, he makes one last official request of D.I. Jack Regan (John Thaw) and D.S. George Carter (Dennis Waterman): take down a ruthless crew of highly skilled and heavily armed bank robbers terrorizing London. But as the gang’s getaways become increasingly violent, Regan and Carter must tangle with crooked cops, beautiful women, a mad bomber, the government of Malta, and a final raid that becomes a desperate shotgun massacre. The great Denholm Elliott (Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Ken Hutchison (Ladyhawke) co-star in this second gritty feature film based on the roughest, toughest and most politically incorrect crime series in TV history.

"Is there a more iconic British crime drama than The Sweeney? Probably not....Sweeney! is a cracking film and about a million times better than the terrible revamp starring Ray Winstone made in 2012."
