Product Description

Two wisecracking, battle-hardened veterans (Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell) team up with a pair of street-smart rookies (Michelle Rodriguez and LL Cool J) to form the most freewheeling - but effective - S.W.A.T. team ever. Their first assignment: transport an international drug kingpin into federal custody - after he's offered $100 million to anyone who will free him!

I'm pretty forgiving when it comes to blockbuster summer movies. I don't expect the greatest scripts or characters or plot, I just want to be entertained. SWAT let me down on all accounts and was practically begging for me to see its many flaws.
The movie is good at the beginning, though. It opens with bank robbers taking hostages and the SWAT team moving in and taking out the robbers one by one. Colin Ferrel's character disobeys orders but turns on his partner in order to stay on the SWAT team. Then the movie begins and that's when it breaks down.
Samuel L Jackson arrives on the scene as a supposed ex-SWAT member who is brought back to restore dignity to the LAPD. All this is covered in one line uttered by Jackson's superior, who happens to hate him and hopes he fails. I have no clue why a separate SWAT team was needed to be formed when the regular SWAT team seemed to be functioning quite well.
Jackson is allowed to choose his own team and much is made in the movie of him choosing each member. Jackson's superior warns that if Jackson picks the wrong team, it'll end his career.
The middle of the movie involves the training of the team. On the way home from training, they stumble on a worldwide fugitive. Through a forced and unbelievable plot, it becomes Jackson's young, inexperienced SWAT team's responsibility to transport the prisoner. Here's where I started having doubts.
The extended climax of the movie involves Jackson, Ferrell, Michelle Rodriquez and LL Cool J trying to transport the prisoner while all types of thugs try to break him free.

SWAT is an action movie that just felt uninspired, unoriginal and lacking in more areas than I could possibly account in this review. This is just one of those movies you watch and someone asks you what you though and you respond "eh, it was ok" and cannot even bring yourself to say anything else. If you're bored and just want a movie to pick up from the video store SWAT will do you just fine... especially if it's one of those days you will spend more time talking than paying attention to the movie, and if you happen to come across it while flipping channels then it might make a decent distraction from your boredome, but I dont know why anyone would pay money to own a copy of this movie. Im very sorry I went to the theater to see this.
Samuel L jackson, and your average run of the mill action sequences are the only things that will keep you from completely disliking this movie. You probably wont hate swat enough to bad mouth it to everyone you know, but then again after you've seen it you will probably never ever think of it ever again... ever.
Swat epitimizes the word mediocre.

Just how does one combine the great Samuel L. Jackson, a crack team of commando police officers, and a villain willing to pay $100 million for freedom and make something as clunky as "SWAT"? Well, if you want the answer to that question, this laborious "action" thriller is for you. As with most contemporary films, check your brain at the door; in fact, the only thing you'll really need it for is ticking off all of the other movies you'd rather be watching. Of course, you could also spend the time cataloging the many films this one seems to raid for ideas . . . "Heat," "Bad Boys," "Licence to Kill," "The Right Stuff," "Executive Decision,"--not to the mention the 70s TV series upon which it is based. The story--an international gangster gets nabbed and the SWATsters battle former team members to keep him--is just a flimsy excuse for some ho-hum action sequences and lots of tiresome macho posturing. Even the usually ultra-cool Jackson seems bored with the goings-on.

By Marty From SF TOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 1 2004
Format: DVD
S.W.A.T. remains faithful to the TV Series, even with the original music (which has not been updated). Sgt. Dan 'Hondo' Harrelson (Samuel Jackson as his usual intense self) runs a nearly roguish group of SWAT members including Jim Street (Colin Farrell as his typical impish self), Michelle Rodriguez (as the 'macho' wise-cracking female) and a host of other minor characters. When I say it's faithful to the television series, that's not exactly a positive comment. The action you see in the previews is fairly what you see in this film. Character development takes up most of the first half of the film (and there is not much to develop) and the rest of the action is just not what you would expect from a 'blockbuster'. Alex Montel (a nasty Olivier Martinez in a nice role) is the murderous villain who gets caught during a minor traffic violation (What?). As the LAPD discover how big a criminal he is, they transport him to a more secure place as the media is allowed to film him shouting that he'll give one million dollars to anyone who can free him. Thus, every hack criminal in L.A. tries (unsuccessfully, of course) to get him for themselves. Now, if you could free him, what guarantees he is going to pay that million? Never mind - this is just a movie. We are even given a chase scene through the L. A. sewers and subway system (very trite). The action sequences are of TV quality and the only excitement is the finale when a hijacked Lear jet lands on the narrow 6th street bridge in L.A. When a film is made from a television series, usually the ante is upped significantly, but this new version of S.W.A.T. is just rehashed '70's TV screenplay. Only one good guy gets killed and we never got to know the poor chump. If you saw "Charlie's Angels", you probably had a better, more inventive time. (Ouch!)
