The Sweeney: Paris

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW - HOH

Who knew our French frères yearned to make their own Cock­neys-vs.gang­sters thrillers? Yet here is their spin on The Sweeney, with Jean reno in the ray Win­stone/john thaw role. the tone — a Bri­tish mix of vi­o­lence and cheek — feels strange among policiers, and while at times fun, it’s also re­gres­sive and puerile, made too cheaply for its am­bi­tion.
