The Sweeney review

Film description

The Sweeney sees The Football Factory's Nick Love update the much loved '70s British detective TV programme for the big screen.

Jack Regan and George Carter shattered police genre conventions when they first put the boot in back in 1975. Hard drinking, hard living and tough on the crims, the Sweeney were a new breed of copper and now we have Ray Winstone and Ben Drew (aka the very talented Plan B) playing the pair.

With Captain America's Hayley Atwell and the charming Kara Tointon (who appeared in an exclusive photoshoot for us) to balance out all the testosterone, The Sweeney screeches into UK cinemas on 12 September 2012.
