Clark Johnson's big-screen adaptation of the 1970s television series S.W.A.T. stars Colin Farrell as Jim Street, a young special weapons and tactics team member who, in the film's opening sequence, is demoted after his hothead partner Jeremy Renner shoots a hostage while trying to kill her captor. In need of good press, the higher-ups call in SWAT expert Hondo Harrelson (Samuel L. Jackson) to put together an elite team that can bring some luster back to the badge. He chooses Street, veteran T.J. (Josh Charles), and tough single mother Chris Sanchez (Michelle Rodriguez). The new team survives a series of tests before hitting the streets. Their first big assignment involves transporting an international criminal (Olivier Martinez) to federal authorities. The criminal had offered a hundred million dollars to anyone who can bust him out.~Perry Seibert
Samuel Jackson, Colin Farrell and pre Hawkeye Jeremy Renner highlight this Police actioner. Drug dealer offers 100 million dollars to anyone who breaks him out of jail so the S.W.A.T. team led by Samuel L. Jackson has to prevent any attempts to free said drug dealer. Not bad for a PG-13 action movie.
