From producer Aaron Spelling (TVs Charlies Angels and Starsky and Hutch) comes one of the toughest, action-packed crime-fighting shows of them all: S.W.A.T.. Spun off from The Rookies and fueled by its signature hit theme song, S.W.A.T. chronicled the covert missions of the LAPD's Special Weapons and Tactics unit, an elite five-man team tackling situations too dangerous for even the police to handle. The show introduced a new breed of hard-as-nails cops to audiences: Lt. Dan Hondo Harrelson (Steve Forrest, Spies Like Us, Mommie Dearest), Officer Jim Street (Robert Urich, TV's Vega$, Spencer For Hire), Sgt. Deacon Kay (Rod Perry), Officer Dominic Luca (Mark Shera, TV's Barnaby Jones), and Officer T.J. McCable (James Coleman).

The movie itself is a fairly typical action flick, the plot is fairly linear with a just a couple twists and turns to keep you engaged. The cast, most of them relatively minor names in acting at the time (Jackson and Farrell excluded of course), give a solid performance. Jackson and Farrell have solid on-screen chemistry that provides a lighter sarcastic-comedy element to the action side of things.
It won't go down in cinema history as a classic but if you're looking for something fun to watch on a rainy afternoon, you could definitely do worse.
