With such a remarkable cast this film could have been good. The script falters and mainly focuses on the action than the plot. Lacks proper character development and direction. Parts of the film was entertaining and had a few dull scenes. Overall S.W.A.T. is a decent action flick whose talents of the artists were not fully utilized.

Unrealistic, uncomplicated, and loud. The cast isn't as compelling as it should be with the actors the film has at its disposal. The action scenes are well-executed, but, without characters we care about, ultimately empty. Nowhere near an in depth police expose as it could have been.

Loosely based on the TV show of the same name, SWAT was a fun, action-packed, escapist movie. A top LAPD brass wants to repair and polish their tarnished reputation by bringing back from retirement Sgt. "Hondo" Harrelson (Samuel L. Jackson) to hand pick a special S.W.A.T. team to take care of extremely dangerous situations. Colin Farrel plays Jim Street, who had been a member of S.W.A.T. previously but was demoted to a gun cage cleaning until Jackson arrives and gives him a second chance. Also on the squad is Chris Sanchez (Michelle Rodriguez) who has already been turned down for S.W.A.T. duty just because she is female. She is one tough babe that can more than carry her share of the load. The rest of the team includes L.L Cool J. The team gets assigned to transfer the head of a notorious...

Another bad big screen remake of a classic TV show

Based on the mid-1970's American TV series, "S.W.A.T." continues the tradition of poor big screen remakes of classic television programs.

Samuel L. Jackson plays "Hondo," a veteran Los Angeles police officer who puts together a young SWAT Team who must protect a dangerous criminal (Olivier Martinez) who is wanted in a dozen countries. This criminal offers a whopping $100-million to anybody who can spring him from jail.

The first big problem is that this movie takes way too long to establish the main characters in the SWAT Team. It also waits until the movie is near the half-way point to start the main plot of protecting the criminal.

Another problem with the movie is that they only tease you with the SWAT Team members forming a relationship and trust needed for such a career. ...
