S.W.A.T. is a great concept, but a poorly written script. What script there is any way. There is no real plot to this fun, exciting, adventure ride of a movie. The movie moves quickly but has no real plot. The writers obviously forgot to put one in. The so called plot is a weak, tired, old pathetic excuse for a movie. The Action though does keep you on the edge of your seat begging for more. The central characters are two dimensional and not well developed. The acting is only good enough to move the story along. It is however a fun and enjoyable movie if you can get past the fact the plot can described in a single sentence. Or at the most a short paragraph. S.W.A.T. by the way stands for special weapons and tactics. The action is intense the movie is purely developed to blow stuff up. There isn’t even a decent car chase. Overall the movie is fun, plotless, and created entirely to be an action flick. Grade B-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
