A sequel to the popular ($116 million at the U.S. box office) if forgettable 2003 action thriller movie S.W.A.T. starring Colin Farrell (Crazy Heart) and Samuel L. Jackson (The Other Guys), S.W.A.T. Firefight sets its story in Detroit, where Los Angeles S.W.A.T. officer Lt. Paul Cutler (Gabriel Macht, Middle Men) is sent to train the Detroit S.W.A.T. team on new anti-terrorism and homeland security techniques.
Though Cutler has a hard time settling into his assignment, he soon begins to adjust, starting a budding romance with police psychologist Kim Byers (Carly Pope, Two For the Money) along the way. Unexpectedly, a routine hostage call turns deadly, and a relentless ex-government agent named Walter Hatch (Robert Patrick, The Men Who Stare at Goats) vows revenge on Cutler and the entire S.W.A.T. team for killing the woman he loves. Cutler must use his considerable S.W.A.T. training and knowledge to save his teammates and defeat a trained killer.
S.W.A.T. Firefight also stars Giancarlo Esposito (The Box) as Cutler’s reluctant Detroit S.W.A.T. team leader and Kristanna Loken (BloodRayne) as Patrick’s former girlfriend, who finds herself in a hostage situation.
Coooool…Robert Patrick, Terminator 2’s T-1000, and Kristanna Loken, Terminator 3’s T-X. Two Terminators from two movies in one S.W.A.T. flick! Who woulda thunk it!?
Benny Boom (Next Day Air) directed the movie.
The Blu-ray and DVD editions of Firefight were priced, respectively, at $30.95 and $24.96.
Both contain one bonus feature: a making-of featurette entitled “Sharp Shooting: On the Set.”
