Inspired by the '70s hit TV series, S.W.A.T. stars Colin Farrell as Jim Street, a former S.W.A.T. team member demoted in the aftermath of a controversial decision made during a robbery/hostage standoff. He gets a chance to redeem himself when team commander Dan "Hondo" Harrelson (Samuel L. Jackson) is assigned to recruit and train five top-notch cops for a new Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T.) unit. Other team members include Deacon "Deke" Kaye (James Todd Smith aka LL Cool J), Chris Sanchez (Michelle Rodriguez) and Michael Boxer (Brian Van Holt). After weeks of demanding physical training, the new S.W.A.T. team is quickly thrown into action when a notorious drug lord (Olivier Martinez) offers a $100 million bounty to anyone who can free him from police custody.
