Storyline:   "Sweeney!" is a 1977 British crime drama film directed by David Wickes. It is based on the popular 1970s British television series "The Sweeney," which followed the exploits of two tough and unorthodox detectives working for the Flying Squad, a division of the London Metropolitan Police specializing in armed robbery and violent crime. The film stars John Thaw as Detective Inspector Jack Regan and Dennis Waterman as Detective Sergeant George Carter, the two central characters from the television series. In "Sweeney!", Regan and Carter are tasked with investigating a violent armed robbery at a bank, which leads them into a complex and dangerous case involving both criminals and corrupt law enforcement officials.

The film is characterized by its gritty depiction of London and its realistic portrayal of police work. "Sweeney!" is known for its action sequences, car chases, and the tough, no-nonsense attitude of its lead characters. The film captures the spirit of 1970s British crime dramas and the tough, working-class ethos of its central characters. The title "Sweeney" is British slang derived from "Sweeney Todd," rhyming slang for the Flying Squad. The Flying Squad was known for its aggressive and unorthodox methods in dealing with violent criminals, and the film reflects this reputation. "Sweeney!" is considered a classic of the British crime genre and is appreciated for its portrayal of the tough and uncompromising world of 1970s law enforcement. It's part of a larger cultural phenomenon associated with "The Sweeney" and the tough cop drama of the era.
