Inspired by a successful TV series in the 1970s, we follow The Flying Squad, an elite group of officers in the London Metropolitan Police. This violent R-rated actioner will have you covering your eyes, stifling your giggles and checking your watch. The kindest thing I can say is that maybe this is a pilot for a re-launch of the series. This is a formulaic bunch of nonsense suffering from an overdose of testosterone: brutal, bloody, and profane.
Even though this squad is effective, its methods are so shocking we are left with no one to root for.
We are treated to station-house humor, extremely vulgar and obviously relished by all the guys on screen. We in the audience didn't catch many of the jokes because we either couldn't hear or understand them. This is an English-speaking film that really needs Closed Captions for us folks here in the Colonies!
