Elite Squad the Enemy Within

Hailing from Brazil, Elite Squad tells the enthralling tale of corruption of both police and twisted politics. Heading up an elite division of the police force, Captain Nascimento gets caught up in a storm of violence, power plays and plotting after a riot at a prison gets thrown squarely on his shoulders.

This is a story that is brilliantly told with excellent pacing and great acting from the cast. It reminded me quite a bit for some reason of another classic, Serpico which is also a story of corruption where the police are as bad if not worse than those they are meant to be locking up.

This movie amazed me with the amount of violence and brutality that is portrayed. I think that if police had the shoot to kill powers that the "Skulls" do over there that either it would be war or crims would just give up. Massive gun battles rage in the streets in scenes better suited to Iraq or Afghanistan, with corrupt cops summarily executing those who pose a threat.  

I utterly enjoyed this film and would most certainly recommend it. The quality of the audio and video is good, and the subtitles well presented and easy to follow along with the action, which at times is at breakneck speed. The DVD is well rounded out with a host of behind the scenes features and cast interviews but is worth the purchase for the feature alone.
