In the explosive action-thriller S.W.A.T starring Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell, and inspired by the 70s television series. Farrell is Jim Street, an L.A.P.D. officer desperate for another chance to wear the privileged S.W.A.T. uniform. He gets that chance when team commander Hondo (Jackson) is assigned to recruit and train five top-notch officers for a new Special Weapons and Tactics unit (S.W.A.T.).
After weeks of rigorous physical training, the new team is immediately thrown into action when a notorious drug lord, played by Olivier Martinez (Unfaithfull), offers a $100 million reward to anyone who can free him from police custody. While accompanying the kingpin out of Los Angeles into the hands of the Feds, the S.W.A.T. team is pursued by a ruthless and well-armed band of mercenaries.
