Samuel L. Jackson – S.W.A.T. (Widescreen Special Edition)Clark Johnsons action adventure starts off with a “save the hostages, kill the bad guys” mission where SWAT members Jim Street (Colin Farrel) and Brian Gamble (Jeremy Renner) break all the rules to save the day. However Captain Fuller (Larry Poindexter) relegates them to the gun cage for doing the “wrong” thing. Gamble leaves on bad terms with his former partner but Street works his way through six months in the cage to be picked on Sgt. Hondo’s (Sam L. Jackson)new swat team, along with LL Cool J, Michelle Rodriguez, Josh Charles and Brian Van Holt.Their Mission? To escort wanted billionaire Alex Montel (Oliver Martinez) to jail. However when Montel offers $100 million to who ever can bust him out, the new team have their hands full.In a film like this, you need to have action scenes that blow you away and snappy one liners, but SWAT fails to deliver. Instead theres alot of training sequences and attempted character building.The action only really kicks in the last half hour and its nothing to write home about. While the rest of the cast are very “I got your Back”, Farrel plays more mature and almost makes the film worth watching. Almost. Farrel has so much talent he should pick btter films thatn this and The Recriut. Hopefully “Alexander” will shape him into the actor he so nearly is.Dont go to see this. It is a waste of time and money.
