The Sweeney

Sweeney Todd, Flying Squad. That’s Cockney Rhyming Slang for you, right there. And in this 2012 movie reboot of a more sedate 1970’s UK tv series, London has really never looked better on film. I mean, seriously stylish. The plot involves Ford Escort car chases, a Heat-style Trafalgar Square shoot-out (where, perplexingly, every bullet misses), Serbian crime lords, oily private bankers, and Ray Winstone as the love interest. (I kid you not.) I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I even watched it twice.
