Editorial Reviews

Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell swagger through "S.W.A.T.", a guns-and-big-trucks macho extravaganza based on the 1970s TV show of the same name, about the police teams brought in to take care of extremely dangerous situations. Jackson plays a sergeant brought out of retirement to form a new squad, which includes rebellious Farrell ("The Recruit") and tough babe Michelle Rodriguez ("Girlfight", "Blue Crush"). After a lot of training and head-butting with a smarmy police captain, the squad gets assigned to transfer the head of a European crime cartel (Olivier Martinez, "Unfaithful") who's declared on television that he'll give $100 million to anyone who gets him out. Every scumbag in Los Angeles descends to claim the money, turning a routine transfer into a bullet-filled gauntlet. Despite some gaps in logic and a generic flavor, "S.W.A.T." will satisfy most action-movie junkies. Also featuring LL Cool J and Josh Charles. "--Bret Fetzer"

4.0 out of 5 stars S.W.A.T is not B.A.D at all! February 14, 2006
I have seen a lot of negative reviews here for this movie. I think this movie is not that bad at all. If you have liked "Speed", you will probably like "S.W.A.T" too. The actions are great, and so is the photography. The director has used his imagination and with the camera he managed to get some excellent shots for the movie. However, I was little disappointed by the acting of Samuel L. Jackson, and Michelle Rodriguez (actually not expected anything from her, she has an emotionless face), but Colin Farrell, and Olivier Martinez looked great throughout the movie.

Sometimes, the movie get slow, but soon picks up with action and keeps the audience on their seat. I agree with one of the reviewer that the movie is more mechanical thriller, but still it's worth a watch. The DVD I got had all the features, except the eight deleted scenes mentioned here. The sound effects are great and you will enjoy this movie if you have a 5.1 home theater system.

3.0 out of 5 stars Delivers non-think escapist summer action. August 24, 2003
I spent my hard earned cash for a matinee fully expecting to watch a big, loud, dumb, mindless and escapist action packed film filled with gun-fights, fist fights, stuff blowing up, mean Euro-trash villains (in this case a real slimy Gaul), a team made of devoted experts, decent enough acting and a few funny lines as well as a passable performance by the young Mel Gibson-like Colin Farrell and I have to say, my money was well spent.
SWAT has the potential to be the TOP GUN for special police forces. SWAT contains TOP GUN'S romanticized vision of ripped warrior bodies performing great feats of physical skill. Like TOP GUN'S Navy Pilots and their super sonic jets, this super Police force expertly manipulates specific technology to defeat the forces of evil. A warrior's complete and total command over the tools of the trade- guns, cars, clubs and each other makes such films work as effective recruitment tools. Who wouldn't want to be part of such an expert team?
SWAT embraces all the required clichés befitting a proper action/cop picture: the [...]by-the-numbers captain, the hardened veteran (played with the usual strength and charisma by the always excellent Samuel L. Jackson), the roguish rebel, the tough female partner, the shapeshifting turncoat and the family man as sacrificial lamb.
If someone wants a decent action-adventure, no thinking required, entertaining junk food movie that provides temporary satisfaction, SWAT serves the bill.

4.0 out of 5 stars You're either S.W.A.T. or you're not August 18, 2003
Based on the 1970s TV series, S.W.A.T. is a great story with just enough action to keep you going, without overdoing it.
Jim Street (Colin Farrell) and Brian Gamble (Jeremy Renner) are partners on the Los Angeles Special Weapons and Tactics team. When a successful hostage rescue results in a lawsuit for the department, hot-head Gamble quits the force while Street accepts a demotion, hoping for a 2nd chance. That 2nd chance comes in the form of Lt. Dan "Hondo" Harrelson (Samuel L. Jackson), a departmental war horse assigned to restore the division's reputation. He hand-picks a new team with Street as its top dog. The other members include Chris Sanchez (Michelle Rodriguez of Blue Crush and The Fast and the Furious); David "Deek" Kay (Rapper L.L. Cool J); T.J. McCabe (Josh Charles of Dead Poet's Society); and Michael Boxer (Brian Van Holt of Basic and Windtalkers). Throughout their training period, we get to know a bit about each team member. Their individual personalities really come to life.
Meanwhile, a French criminal kingpin named Alex Montel, played by Oliver Martinez ("Unfaithful"), is caught and imprisoned, and offers $100 million to anyone who can help him escape. The Team is now up against a bunch of money-hungry LA mercenaries which will include some familiar faces.
Great action movie. Naturally, most scenes are stolen by the legendary Samuel L. Jackson and the young, hot, Irish actor Colin Farrell. But the other team members shine as well and add so much to the team and the film. Definitely worth it.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie on t.v. for the first time a few days ago and now I'm buying the DVD. I'm not a big fan of action movies but I do watch them now and again. I've read quite a few negative reviews about this film and I think they are undeserved. When I saw it I thought it was good, not Diehard good, but it held its own. I really enjoyed it. I really liked the idea that they included a female member of SWAT. One never sees a woman SWAT member. It looks like this is one of those movies you either love, like, or hate. One has to make up one's own mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars serviceable cop film July 5, 2005
Loosely based on the TV series of the same name, "S.W.A.T." is an entertaining, if essentially formulaic, police procedural set on the ribboned thoroughfares and sizzling pavements of metropolitan Los Angeles. Samuel L. Jackson plays an LAPD veteran called back to the force to handpick and train a crack SWAT team made up of promising neophyte recruits. Colin Farrell, LL Cool J and Michelle Rodriguez are the actors who make up part of that team.

The creators of "S.W.A.T." have done a pretty decent job given the limitations of the genre. It's true that the plot is standard issue stuff for the most part and the characters have little opportunity to distinguish themselves and develop. However, the dialogue is frequently crackling and the performers go through the motions with seriousness and conviction. The action scenes are also well handled, even if they do go a bit overboard from time to time, a problem endemic to virtually all action films these days, not just this one.

Chances are you probably won't remember a thing about "S.W.A.T." much past its closing credits, but it's a fun enough ride while you`re watching it.
