Second theatrical spin-off from the popular 1970's police series. Regan and Carter head a Flying Squad investigation into a series of bank raids by a team of well-armed villains who are flying in from the continent.
Dennis Waterman once commented on the violence in The Sweeney (1974) while doing publicity for this movie by saying: "It's certainly no more violent than the real Flying Squad. The stories that we hear from policemen that we know are terrifying. We don't introduce gratuitous violence, but it is, in real-life, a violent job, and to pretend otherwise would be ridiculous."
No music in this bar, no dancing please!
When Regan is talking to the telephone operator in the hotel where the bomb is being defused, one shot shows the mouthpiece of the operator's headset pointing correctly towards her mouth. However in the next shot from the opposite side, the mouthpiece is pointing in the wrong direction, away from her mouth.
