The Sweeney sees hard man Ray doing what he does best

COMMENT: Bandstand event is a victim of its own success

Have your say

If you fancy paying the cinema a visit this weekend, I’d recommend Ray Winstone’s new flick – The Sweeney.

Ray is back doing what he does best – kicking butt, acting like an English yobbo and over-playing his hard man persona.

But he does it well and this film, which also stars music artist Plan B, plays up to all these characteristics to create a Snatch/The Bill-type movie drama.

I’m not usually the biggest fan when it comes to English films. I prefer the glitz and polish of a Hollywood blockbuster staring Tom Cruise or Angelina Jolie.

But I admit this is a good action film that rivals the best of them. Plan B is also pretty good in this – and I sense that a sequel may well be on its way.
