Based on the '70s UK television show, this action-filled police drama follows Detective Inspector Jack Regan (Ray Winstone) and his friend and co-worker Detective Constable George Carter (Ben Drew). The two men are members of the Flying Squad, a branch of the Metropolitan Police, who investigate commercial armed robberies. When an old enemy reappears in an investigation, the team stops at nothing to take down the bad guys, even if it means expensive messes and hurt civilians.

  • 2 stars "Dropping the F-bomb every four words doesn't make for a classic. Predictable...not one likeable character."
  • 3 stars "Unmemorable performances over a weak plot. Didn't do the old tv series any justice at all."
