S.W.A.T. – SPECIAL EDITION REVIEWED
“S.W.A.T.” was indicative of SONY in the early 00s. Let’s adapt a property, make it play for the Inner City and then try to be ironic about it. Early Jeremy Renner gets to shine for a bit, but then it’s time to put Colin Farrell upfront. Michelle Rodriguez does her usual schtick, but it plays better than Samuel L. Jackson trying to cash a check. I decided to revisit the film via Mill Creek, as I still hold Clark Johnson in high regard. He’s a workable director that takes projects that…nope, this is pretty awful.
The neat thing is that it might have the best audio track that I’ve heard on a Mill Creek blu. Not sure whether that’s SONY’s doing or Mill Creek in-house.
