"S.W.A.T.", the movie is about the elite Los Angeles Police Department law enforcement who are called in when all others need help.

The action-thriller S.W.A.T. starring Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell, and inspired by the 70s television series. Farrell is Jim Street, an L.A.P.D. officer desperate for another chance to wear the privileged S.W.A.T. uniform. He gets that chance when team commander Hondo (Jackson) is assigned to recruit and train five top-notch officers for a new Special Weapons and Tactics unit (S.W.A.T.).

After weeks of rigorous physical training, the new team is immediately thrown into action when a notorious drug lord, played by Olivier Martinez (Unfaithful), offers a $100 million reward to anyone who can free him from police custody. While accompanying the kingpin out of Los Angeles into the hands of the Feds, the S.W.A.T. team is pursued by a ruthless and well-armed band of mercenaries.

Q & A with producer Neal H. Moritz at the Sony Pictures Back Lot Stage Theater in Culver City, California on Tuesday 15 April 2003. Neal also produced "2 Fast and Furious" as well as "XXX". Neal says that this film is as much a reality film as an action film. Sure the characters are all in good shape so that they can all run and jump with the extreme action in the film.  However, Neal says that the movie also tries to portray "why someone would do this job" - that is put his life on the line. Neal says that they worked with actual S.W.A.T. team members to get a sense of realism and to help answer the question, what kind of guy would want to do this.

This should be a great summer movie. The great cast has a chance to make this one of the better action films of the summer.
