Jim Street (Colin Farrell) is a former SWAT team member, who along with his partner Brian Gamble (Jeremy Renner), is thrown off the team in the aftermath of a controversial decision they made during a robbery/hostage stand-off. Gamble quits the force in disgust, but for Street, being a policeman is his life and he agrees to a demotion, hoping to someday have the chance to redeem himself and once again wear the privileged SWAT uniform. He gets that chance when team commander Dan "Hondo" Harrelson (Samuel L Jackson) is assigned to recruit and train five top-notch officers for a new Special Weapons and Tactics unit. After weeks of rigorous physical training, the new team is immediately thrown into action when a notorious drug lord, offers a $100 million bounty to anyone who can free him from police custody. As they escort the kingpin out of Los Angeles into the hands of the Feds, the SWAT team is pursued by a ruthless and well-armed band of mercenaries.
Inspired by the 70s television series.

Not enough nudity. There is plenty of opportunity for semi-naked people in showers, gyms, bedrooms, etc. but it didn't happen. You've got to have something to look at between the explosions.
