Elite Squad is a mostly fine piece of action film making that manages to separate itself from its brethren through its frenetic, kinetic pacing. The story itself is serviceable - elite BOPE leader craves retirement, searches for a replacement in two seemingly different personalities. One is the live wire Neto, the other is idealistic lawyer in training Matias.

The action set piece... read more

A very good movie

Since this movie won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film festival, I was really eager to watch it. Honestly, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, it reminded me of this other great Brazilian flick, 'Cidade de Deus'. The big difference is that they didn't only focus on the Favelas but, this time, you get a glimpse on all the layers involved in the drug industry (the violent drug dealers, the population o... read more

Description: In 1997, before the visit of the pope to Rio de Janeiro, Captain Nascimento from BOPE (Special Police Operation Battalion) is assigned to eliminate the risks of the drug dealers in a dangerous slum nearby where the pope intends to be lodged. Captain Nascimento is trying to find a man to replace him because his wife is pregnant and he intends to quit the command and become a trainer of the new recruits. Meanwhile, the two idealistic friends Neto and Matias join the Military Police force expecting to become honest policemen and fight the criminals. However, they see only corruption, lack of competence and stupid bureaucracy in the ... (more)

"Favelan slummeissa huumejengit polttavat siviilejä renkaiden sisään ja poliisit ampuvat haulikolla aseettomia diilereitä lähietäisyydeltä kasvoihin. Kumpikin puoli syyllistyy raakuuksiin, kaikki on harmaata, eikä kenenkään moraalinen kompassi osoita pohjoiseen. Samalla myös tehokas kuvaus Rio de Janeiron poliisijärjestön korruptiosta, yhteiskuntaluokkien jakautumisesta ja poliisin ja sotilaan erosta lainvalvonnan tasolla."

"Katsottu 3.7.2012 DVD Rankka brasilialainen kuvaus favela-slummien täyttämästä helvetistä tunkkaisen kuumassa Rio de Janeirossa. Köyhyyden, huume- ja jengisotien riepottelema suurkaupunki on alati otsikoissa alueella jylläävien väkivaltaisuuksien takia. Paikalliset poliisivoimat ovat täynnä korruptiota, eikä kukaan muutenkaan uskaltaisi favela-alueille astua. Vallan ovat ottaneet keskenään sotivat jengit, jotka saavat aseita poliiseilta huumeita vastaan. Järjestelmä on läpimät"

"26.5 BD Tropa de Elite on aika harvinainen toimintaelokuva ylipäänsä, koska se tähtää korkeammalle kuin genren rajat antaisivat yleensä myöten. Se paitsi kertoo ainakin minuun hyvin iskeneen kasvukertomuksen, elokuva myös sisältää vahvan moraalisen ja eettisen pohjan, joka otetaan ensimmäisistä ruuduista lähtien esille ja pidetään täysin selvänä katsojan pohdittavana koko keston ajan. Elite Squadina jenkeissä tunnettu filmi väittää yksiselitteisesti, että nykyajan pol"

A very good movie

“Since this movie won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film festival, I was really eager to watch it. Honestly, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, it reminded me of this other great Brazilian flick, 'Cidade de Deus'. The big difference is that they didn't only focus on the Favelas but, this time, you get a glimpse on all the layers involved in the drug industry (the violent drug dealers, the population of the Favelas, the corrupted police forces, the students who buy some drugs, and of course the BOPE squad). The other big difference with 'Cidade de Deus' was the directing style. Indeed, whereas the former had a rather kynetic and fancy directing style, this movie was more realistic, some parts even felt like a documentary. Personally, I really enjoyed this movie and I thought it had actually a v” read more

"19.4, Blu-ray Tuli täysin puskan takaa, että brasilialainen elokuva muistuttaa ulkoasultaan näinkin paljon jenkkiläistä toimintaelokuvaa ja onnistuu kaikesta kameranheilutuksesta huolimatta saavuttamaan varsin realistisen ja tiiviin tunnelman sekä toimintakohtauksiin että muihinkin kohtauksiin. Ehdottomasti parasta tässä tosiaan on ohjaus, joka kyllä herätti mielenkiinnon jo ensimmäisessä kohtauksessa. Muutenkin onnistuin uppoutumaan tähän paremmin kuin mihinkään muuhun elokuva"

"7.3. Padilhan elokuvassa Rion faveloihin pesiytynyt pelon alati järkkyvä, väkivaltaa väkivallan perään aiheuttava tasapaino tulee erittäin hyvin selväksi, eikä eliittijoukkojen vastalääkekään näytä parhaalta mahdolliselta ratkaisulta. En henkilökohtaisesti innostu tällaisesta realismista pahemmin, mutta ongelma ja sen todellisten ratkaisumahdollisuuksien puuttuminen tuodaan ehdottomasti ansiokkaalla tavalla esiin."

" Featured List Must See Brazilian Films I'm glad I finally got around to spending time with this film. While dynamics of the drug trade and police corruption might not be new for most viewers, I would still recommend the film if your looking for some substance with your police action/thriller. "
