The Sweeney

Director: Nick Love
Producers: Allan Niblo, Chris Simon
Drama, 104mins

The ‘Best British action movie in years’ (The Sun), The Sweeney is director Nick Love’s re-imagining of ITV’s cult 1970s cop show of the same name. Ray Winstone leads the star-studded cast as D.I. Jack Regan, alongside Plan B (Ill Manors), Damian Lewis (Homeland) and Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger).

We provided all sound supervision, sound design, foley and dialogue editing for this ambitious feature, which released in cinemas nationwide on Wednesday 12th September 2012.

Tearing up the streets of London, D.I. Jack Regan (Ray Winstone) and his partner George Carter (Ben Drew) from the Flying Squad have their own way of operating, and when an old enemy makes a re-appearance on the London crime scene, they will do whatever it takes to get the job done. The Sweeney is a slick and stylish thriller, taking the action to the streets of London – including an exhilarating shoot-out in Trafalgar Square!
