The classic British TV cop drama gets a slick contemporary spin with geezer nonpareil Ray Winstone and rapper Ben Drew stepping into the scuffed shoes of John Thaw and Dennis Waterman as the no-nonsense Flying Squad cops doling out their own brand of justice. A brutal shooting during a jewellery shop heist is linked to the activity of a ruthless East European crime gang. To muddy the case, Regan (Winstone) is also being investigated by Steven Mackintosh's internal affairs officer as the Sweeney's uncompromising methods are called into question. The Football Factory's Nick Love directs a fast-moving ride. Knock yerself aht.
