Despite its promising cast and iconic London setting, All Things To All Men fails to grab your attention and run off through Regent Street with it. Slow paced, confused and anti-climactic, the best part of the film is when Lenny Kravitz’s Are You Gonna Go My Way is, for some reason, blared out over the credits; allowing you to get your air guitar on with careless abandon. What is it with action films set in the capital and their inability to be remotely entertaining?
Ray Winstone and Ben Drew team up to bring us Nick Love’s take on policing the criminal ridden streets of London. Based on the 70s cop series of the same name, The Sweeney attempts to deliver a hard hitting punch to the face but ends up turning in a limp wristed slap. Once more, with feeling Winstone.
