Two wisecracking, battle-hardened veterans (Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell) team up with a pair of street-smart rookies (Michelle Rodriguez and LL Cool J) to form the most freewheeling - but effective - S.W.A.T. team ever. Their first assignment: transport an international drug kingpin into federal custody - after he's offered $100 million to anyone who will free him!

As long as you are not expecting Emmy-winning elements you will be satisfied with the movie. It doesn't leave you with the pumped-up feeling at the end like some of the "upbeat" action films do but it still is a fine way to spend your time. Perhaps grab your friends and see who can recognize the original team first. You won't get Samuel Jackson's usual f-bombs and they even dubbed one scene where he said a naughty word (not the f-bomb).
They added a female to the team who was supposedly better than other males because she beat up some gang banger who had her by 100 lbs and a few inches. Ehhh...I suppose if she was highly trained in fighting it could happen but as a rule...males will 99 out of 100 times beat females in fighting, strength and endurance.

There are a lot of cliches - such as the hero's girlfriend reluctantly leaving him, the irate police captain ranting at the reckless-yet-brave officers, the renegade and so on - and all the machismo posturing means it's not exactly brain-taxing, but this is still an enjoyable action film. There are a couple of funny lines, the action ramps up well, Samuel L Jackson is always good value for money, and Jeremy Renner is on fine "evil" form as the baddie. Worth a watch, but I'd say buy second-hand or rent rather than rush to own it.
