Sweeney!

The first big screen outing for Thaw and Waterman, and the exclamation mark should provide adequate warning. (Also note the rationing of definite articles that was eventually to do for the Callaghan administration.) This plays more like an extended episode of The Professionals than proper ‘Todd, with over-the-top shootings, bombings and oil baron intrigues galore. Barry ‘Van Der Valk’ Foster , Colin ‘laxative’ Welland, Diane ‘Cuckoo’ Keen, Brian ‘mysteries’ Glover and Lynda ‘Preston’ Bellingham join in the sillies.
