I am a big Samuel Jackson fan, so this movie was a winner for me. The rest of the cast was also very good, including Jeremy Renner in one of his several proto-sociopath roles prior to him becoming an Avengers hero. Colin Ferrell was also very good, and I continue to marvel at why some critics claim he is not a first-class actor. Well, he is a first-class actor. I am not sure just how realistic this is in the way of SWAT training and SWAT situations in the field, but the plot was novel enough to keep my interest for two hours. Recommended.
