Ratings & Reviews

  1. JackButcher's rating of the film The Sweeney

    Bad acting, bad writing, bad action scenes, bad editing, ill-fitting generic soundtrack... the list goes on.

  2. Graham Ball's rating of the film The Sweeney

    Look, Nick Love should not be allowed to make films! He is crap! Such a wasted opportunity that could have delivered big time. Great cast, brilliant premise, durable legacy - two stars purely because it could have been so much better.

  3. Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film The Sweeney

    Goddamn this is awful. This could have been some bad ass mix of HEAT and NARC, the two best four letter all caps cop titles ever. But instead it's just a mix of SWAT and SHIT. SHIT isn't a real movie, but it's about half of this one. The other half is that dude from Harry Brown with the crazy eyes just staring weirdly at people. You're a detective, not some douche at the mall trying to impress teenagers. Terrible.

  4. Jye Sherwell's rating of the film The Sweeney

  5. Cbarky99's rating of the film The Sweeney

    The spirit of Golan-Globus is alive and well in 2013, go figure.

  6. Andre Rehal's rating of the film The Sweeney

    Nothing really new here, the film is competent in its execution but bad writing is still bad writing as the cast tries to do their best with what little they have.

  7. Palmat's rating of the film The Sweeney

    Not having seen the TV-show I had little to compare with but despite this it is obvious this is not a very good film. The script and direction is "geezered" to the max so the tone becomes parodic and silly. Winstone chews the scenery as does most of the actors. Apart from a good turn from Ben Drew and a cracking "Mann-shoot-out" in Trafalgar Square, there is not much fun to be had watching this poorly made movie.
