The Sweeney was ground-breaking television when it exploded onto TV screens in 1975. Gone were the proper, by-the-book cops of television old. In their place was the Flying Squad - the roughest, toughest men who threw away the book in their pursuit of law and justice. The crime squad consisting of John Thaw (INSPECTOR MORSE) and Dennis Waterman (MINDER, NEW TRICKS) were so popular that two big-screen motion pictures were released at the height of the series' success. Now, both action-packed films are brought together in this Special Collector's Edition including two feature-length audio commentaries, original pressbook PDFs, galleries and production information booklet. The Sweeney are back... and they still haven't had any dinner! THE SWEENEY! Against the lush cosmopolitan setting of British cabinet minsters rubbing shoulders with oil potentates from the East and beautiful young call girls using every artifice at their finger tips to capture the richest prizes during a London-based oil conference, Detective Inspector Jack Regan and Detective Sergeant George Carter accidentally get involved in a gigantic top level conspiracy against the British government. SWEENEY 2 There is a major shake-up in the Flying Squad when Detective Inspector Jack Regan's chief, Jupp, is convicted of corruption. Regan finds himself unable to testify in his guv'nor's defence. But before he is imprisoned, Jupp leaves Regan a last legacy: the files on a tough, ruthless gang who specialise in bank robberies. All that they leave behind is a trail of dead bodies, wrecked cars and bundles of banknotes - apparently abandoned in the haste of the getaway.
