Sweeney 2 is a 1978 film that is a sequel to the 1977 film Sweeney! which was itself a spin-off from the popular British TV show The Sweeney. Some of the action was transferred from the usual London setting to Malta. Denholm Elliot appears as a corrupt ex-officer, who asks his former subordinates to take down a gang of armed bank robbers. Nigel Hawthorne appears as a bureaucratic superior officer, taking the role usually played by Garfield Morgan in the television episodes.
