Blu-ray Monday: The Sweeney

For this week’s Blu-ray Monday, we’re giving you the chance to win The Sweeney, Nick Love’s big screen version of the classic 1970s crime thriller TV series.

The Sweeney follow two members of elite police unit “The Flying Squad” as they are let loose on London’s criminal underworld. Ray Winstone does a stellar job replacing TV star John Thaw as old-school hard cop Jack Reagan, and Ben Drew (Plan B) takes on the role of George Carter, Regan’s loyal partner and right-hand man. The movie opens as George and Jack arrive at the scene of a warehouse robbery and follows their pursuit of a murderer who proves impossible to track down. The Sweeney is action packed, featuring exhilarating car chases, nail-biting fight scenes and an epic finale filmed in London’s world famous Trafalgar Square, the first time this has ever been done.

The Blu-ray version will include behind the scenes footage, a special feature on the Shooting in Trafalgar Square and animated story boards.

The Sweeney is a new take on the original 70’s TV series, but what other small screen favourites would you like to get the movie treatment? Perhaps you would like to see Dr Who get a big screen makeover? If you are a fan of US dramas, would film versions of the Fringe, Lost or Walking Dead get you excited? Or maybe there are some British classics that could spot a refresh – how about a comedy like Fawlty Towers, or a thriller like Spooks?
