Sweeney!

We watched “Sweeney!” this evening, the 1977 feature-film spinoff from the television series. I’d seen the second film several times (imaginatively titled “Sweeney 2”), but I don’t remember seeing this before. Action, villainy, shouting, hard drinking, and John Thaw — lots of enjoy here. Barry Foster had a silly accent as the baddie, Lynda Bellingham was almost-unrecognisably young, and Ian Bannen added character as a government minister. Dennis Waterman didn’t have much to do, though.
