Synopsis


S.W.A.T.
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, Rovi

    Great Film

    For all the mixed feelings you will get when you ask people if they liked this movie, I was surprised with just how much I enjoyed it. This is a great movie, involving some great twists, big names, and good action. The acting isn't anything amazing, but it fits the mood of the movie itself. As a whole, S.W.A.T. is a light-hearted action movie which gives some background into what life could be like in a S.W.A.T. team. I really enjoyed this film and I recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a light action movie. Oh yeah, and by the way, the opening shootout is a re-enactment of a real shootout called "The Hollywood Shootout". Look it up and you can see just how realistic the re-enactment ended up being... very well done.

    the begining, middle, and end were not linked together. the movie starts to get off topic in the middle and the end. in the begining they were actually doing what the SWAT team actually does. in the middle they talk about holding this terrorist and him sayingn that he will pay anyone who breaks him out. then multiple people try to break him out. it is sorta hard to explain the movie. also at the end a few swat officers betrayed the swat team for money. i though this movie was going to talk about what SWAT does in real life and re actment of what they do. i say this because in the begining they showed what they do. and then the whole movie is fiction..

    Okay I'm not old enough to have seen the tv series, but if its anything like the movie than it must have been a good series. Everyone was great in this movie (even LL), but my girl, Michelle Rodriguez was the surprise hit. With her tough girl attitude, and extremely sexy look, Ms. Rodriguez shows that guys are not the only ones that can handle themselves with guns

    This movie gives a little insight to the kind of job SWAT officers have to perform. The acting could be a little better, but, the action keeps you into the movie.

    This movie has a dumb premise, none of the actors come across as anyone who would be in swat. Its just a straight up dumb movie.
