According to the press releases we’ve received about eOne Films’ upcoming crime thriller The Sweeney, we can tell you that it very well could be “a stylish, exhilarating action thriller proving sometimes you have to act like a criminal to catch a criminal.” Then again, that might be a little bit of marketing hyperbole. But we’re rooting for it, as it’s the kind of movie that sees the likes of Ray Winstone playing a tough, legendary detective and Damian Lewis playing his no-nonsense boss. It also stars Captain America dame Hayley Atwell, which is another mark in the plus column. Full of thick accents, car chases and what we can only expect to be a lot of turse language from the director of Outlaw and The Business, this one has us looking over iTunes to make sure it’s available for rent.
And it is, as The Sweeney hits VOD platforms today, March 1. To celebrate, here’s an exclusive clip of Ray Winstone being Ray Winstone, along with some other shenanigans.
As a special added bonus, here is a two-part clip from last season of Top Gear, in which Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond help director Nick Love with one of the car chases. There’s no way this ended up in the film:
As an added added bonus, here are a number of images of characters in The Sweeney staring very seriously at something or someone. It’s a very serious world they live in:
