They're the best of the best, the elite of law enforcement.

And they've been recruited for their most dangerous mission ever.

Jim Street (Colin Farrell) is a brilliant S.W.A.T. team member who, along with his partner Brian Gamble, is thrown off the team in the aftermath of a controversial decision they made during a hostage standoff. Gamble quits the force in disgust, but for Street being a policeman is his life and he agrees to a demotion, hoping for a chance to redeem himself and once again wear the privileged S.W.A.T. uniform.

Street gets that chance when team commander Dan "Hondo" Harrelson (Samuel L Jackson) is assigned to recruit and train five top-notch cops for a new Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T.) unit. The other members of the new team Hondo recruits are Deacon "Deke" Kaye (LL Cool J), Chris Sanchez (Michelle Rodriguez), Michael Boxer (Brian Van Holt) and T.J. McCabe (Josh Charles).

After weeks of demanding physical training, the new S.W.A.T. team is thrown into action when a notorious drug lord, Alex Montel (Olivier Martinez), audaciously offers a $100 million bounty to anyone who can free him from police custody. As they escort the kingpin out of Los Angeles and into the hands of the Feds, they are pursued by a ruthless and well-armed band of mercenaries. The team must rely on their training, and each other, to succeed and to stay alive.

What the critics are saying:

"Best-of-the-best cops make for a better-than-average action flick thanks to street-level direction and blue-collar heroics."
- James Rocchi, Netflix

"Offers up the kind of pleasures that only a summer movie can."
- Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

"One long adrenaline shot that never takes itself seriously and never pauses long enough to worry about making much sense."
- Paul Clinton, CNN

A high octane cop thriller that lets us behind the scenes of the often misunderstood world of Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T.) - the most elite and respected police unit in the world.
