S.W.A.T.'s happening? Plenty, when smart-mouthed sharpshooter Colin Farrell gets chosen by badass Samuel L. Jackson for his crack team of supercops. Along with LL Cool J, Michelle Rodriguez and others, the S.W.A.T. team train, work out personal issues and get ready to bust the bad guys. Good thing too, because when captured foreign felon Olivier Martinez offers $100 million to anyone who will help him escape, the scum of the city come crawling out to cause problems and blow up a bunch of stuff.
Sure, it's another updated '70s TV show movie, the basic plot can be figured out in the first 15 minutes, and the good-beats-bad ending is a gimme. But the camaraderie is realistic and heartening, the escape plan is exciting, and the ladies will love it when LL flashes his abs.
