Action movie looking for a plot
Verified purchase
SWAT was based upon the 1970s TV show about Los Angeles’ SWAT team. The plot is very thin because it’s mostly about showing off the SWAT team.

The story is supposed to revolve around French drug lord Alexander Montel (Olivier Martinez) being arrested and then trying to escape which the SWAT team under the leadership of Sergeant Hondo Harrelson (Samuel L. Jackson) has to stop. It takes so long time to get there however as a lot of time is spent forming the SWAT unit and training. That’s done because they want to show off all the hardware and the police prowess. It’s like a big commercial for the police. Ooh look at all the guns they have. Look at what they can do. It gets ridiculous.

Overall the movie is an action film searching for a plot. It’s like they forgot they’re supposed to actually have a compelling story and decided all the shiny guns and equipment would win over the audience.

No digital code!!!
Verified purchase
Okay I’m getting fed up with these movies that are supposed to have a digital code inserted inside and when I open it, I’m upset to find no digital code. It would be different if it wasn’t a Columbia Pictures movie but I know and have a Sony Rewards app that proves that this movie was supposed to have a digital code. And since Columbia Pictures is a part of Sony Pictures. Well that is just another way to prove it’s supposed to have a digital code. So can I exchange it for one with a digital code inside or get it for free especially since it wasn’t specified???

Any Sam Jackson movie is worth the price
Verified purchase
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.

Now I know why nobody ever mentioned this film.

Is Michelle Rodriguez a tough cop or a skinny AIDS victim? Is Colin Ferrell a maverick cop or a drug addict? They don't look like cops, they don't even look like they work out. Even LLCOOLJ looks anemic. "Momma says don't pick on me, please." And the way they handle guns on the train--can you say wanton endangerment?

Sometimes you have to take the law In your own hands.

It was a good movie, but I grew up around guns , and know what their capabilities are and this is a poor excuse of Hollywood fantasy land!! Professional's would never do this in real life,, that why I'm asking individuals to don't pull trigger unless it's the last thing to save your family and yourself.

I mean, Samuel Jackson is in it. Need I say more? haha

Top tier actors are prevalent in this police action flick. This is a modernized version of the 1970's TV show, SWAT. Lots action and flashy scenes. Fun and enjoyable for fans of action flicks.

Good Popcorn Movie
Verified purchase
Great action flick. Sam Jackson and Colin Farrell convincingly pull off the roles of team leaders in the SWAT unit in LA. Fun to see Farrell, Michele Rodriguez,and Jeremy Renner in their earlier roles. Not alot of depth to the film, but it's a great "Mancave" movie.

Poor script considering acting talent available
Verified purchase
Both Colin and Samuel mailed in their performances almost as if to put a stamp of disapproval on the crappy script and poor direction. Could of, and should of, been so much better!
