Critic Reviews of "The Sweeney"Village VoiceMarch 01, 2013
[It] feels a lot like an American-made cop movie circa 1990.New York Daily NewsMarch 01, 2013
Based on a '70s British program, this is a bombastic effort that, while not successful, is still as bracing as a cold pint.Newark Star-LedgerMarch 01, 2013
Winstone is, as always, perfectly believable as a tough guy and after a slow start - due, somewhat, to American ears adjusting to those problematic accents - the film hits a groove.Detroit NewsMarch 01, 2013
Maybe it worked in the '70s; it's too worn to work these days. Ray Winstone needs to find better rocks to chew on.New York PostMarch 01, 2013
The movie blithely repeats most of the clichés of the American badass-cop flick, only in impenetrable Cockney.San Francisco ChronicleFebruary 28, 2013
This might just be a British thing that we don't understand - literally.Eye for FilmApril 23, 2017
Love may have plonked his protagonists in the modern world but they still feel trapped in a long-gone era, when police brutality was commonplace and women knew their place.The Patriot LedgerMay 13, 2013
It goes nowhere, lost in the thick, indecipherable cockney accents and seemingly endless shootouts and car chases.East Bay ExpressMarch 07, 2013
You'd be better off going out into the lobby for popcorn and a soda for the first hour.Film Journal InternationalMarch 05, 2013
Pulpy Brit actioner for die-hard fans of Ray Winstone, whose close-to-camp turn as '70s TV hero Jack Regan isn't enough to warrant a booking.Film4March 04, 2013
Let's not waste each other's time. You already know whether this sounds like the kind of top bloke you'd fancy having a pint with. If so, The Sweeney is your film.CraveOnlineMarch 02, 2013
The film is just stylized enough to register as above average, but on the whole it's pretty forgettable - the kind of film you describe with a noncommittal "interesting," while walking out of the theater.
