'The Sweeney' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Fri Mar 29, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The British action drama will be hitting Blu-ray in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Entertainment One is bringing 'The Sweeney' to Blu-ray on April 2.

Tearing up the streets of London, 'The Sweeney' is a stylish and exhilarating action thriller proving sometimes you have to act like a criminal to catch a criminal.  Directed by Nick Love and based on the popular 1970s U.K. television show of the same name, the U.K. box office smash is based on the Sweeney Flying Squad, London's elite crime-fighting force - a branch of the Metropolitan Police specializing in tackling armed robbery and violent crime.  Led by legendary Detective Jack Regan (Winstone) and his loyal partner, the group is not afraid to use old school, bare-knuckle tactics to bring down the modern underworld. Now, with a master criminal on the loose and a major bank heist in progress, Regan will do whatever it takes to get the job done, even if that means defying the orders of his boss (Lewis) and taking the law into his own hands.

Supplements have not yet been revealed, but the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack.

The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.98.
