Jack Regan is a slobbish, old style cop whose unsubtle methods usually get results, to the annoyance of internal affairs officer Lewis, who would be even more annoyed if he knew that Regan was having an affair with his young wife, policewoman Nancy. After Regan disobeys orders and a shoot-out in central London following a bank hold-up ends in carnage, he is stripped of office and briefly imprisoned. However, thanks to the loyalty of his young protege George Carter and a little string pulling from his superior Frank Haskins, Regan is released to bring down the villains in a gun battle at Gravesend marina, ensuring the continued existence of his department - the Sweeney.Written by

During the car chase through the caravan park, Carter can be seen leaning out of the passenger side window to shoot at the other car. In the next shot, the window has (very quickly) been rolled back up and Carter is sitting back in the seat. See more »
DC George Carter:
He's either done all his beans and gone skint or an opportunity came his way and he simply just couldn't say no.

I'd looked forward to this having missed it in the cinema, I was a big fan of the TV series and may have expected much more. It was a terrible disappointment. The action was OK, the script; well let's just say they must have had space left on the envelope. It was mostly dull and unbelievable even in an action movie, were some suspension of reality must be given. Some of the acting was dreadful, at best wooden, the shooting, the proverbial barn door would be safe. I'm a fan of Ray, in this he was miscast and wasted, it might have made an acceptable television pilot I'm now not sure if it was worth the rental, maybe just.3/10
