The police drama has been a staple of television for many, many decades and that's just as true in England as it is here in the States, particularly in the '70s when a television show called The Sweeney was one of the most popular shows on television, on for three seasons and spawning two movies, none of which got much notice in the States.

Nearly 35 years later, filmmaker Nick Love decided to make a movie that acts as an updated version of the popular show with Ray Winstone playing the new Jack Regan, a tough old school police detective on London's "Flying Squad," a special division focused on armed robbery and violent crimes. It's a division full of corruption and questionable activities and Regan has been secretly having an affair with the wife of one of his superiors, played by Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) while his significantly younger partner George Carter (Ben Drew, also known as rapper Plan B) has been trying to fly the straight and narrow for the sake of his pregnant wife. Meanwhile, London is faced by a crime spree by a group of criminals who are callously murdering people at their crime scenes.

ComingSoon.net got on the phone with the veteran British actor last week, but before we get to that interview, eOne Films has provided us with an exclusive clip from the film including a shout-out from Winstone himself. The clip comes from roughly halfway into the movie when Winstone's character is closing in on the robbers responsible for the crime spree, a tense scene in a parking garage where his girlfriend Nancy falls into their clutches.
