    beautiiful cinematography pero ACAB

  6. Aivaras_Z's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Brutal, and at times repulsive, not leaving much space for happy endings. No wonder it ruffled some humanist feathers.

  7. Babak Geranfar's rating of the film Elite Squad

    It is magnificent how a Brazilian favela crime flic can turn into an art-house masterwork. Elite Squad is one of those magic tricks of the cinema! one for sure different is and perplexing. Still confused about where i am going to be around It. Total joy!

  8. bladegun's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Ugly, hard to watch, and with some very unfortunate implications, Tropa de Elite was a movie that I don't mind not watching for a second time. The only things that prevent a lower score are some great performances and some truly nerve wrecking moments. But they are not enough to save the film. The only reason to watch it, I feel, is to provide more context for the much better sequal 5/10

  9.'s rating of the film Elite Squad

    Our Daily Free Stream: Tropa De Elite (engl. subt.). Tropa De Elite ist ein brasilianischer Thriller, so voller Wut, ja Hass und mit explizit politischer Thematik, dass seine blosse Existenz wie ein kleines Wunder wirkt!(...)

  11. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Like his City of God, Mantovani conveys so much plot-wise that his thin-in-dimension story is emotionally passive since the scope skirts through many details so quickly that the viewer doesn't feel connected to it. He lingers here on the interworkings of corruption, but not on the human drama, which is too rapid and convoluted to establish an emotional connection. Like that other film, it suffers from exhaustion.

  12. Antonio León Medina's rating of the film Elite Squad

  13. Lívia Loos's rating of the film Elite Squad

  14. Chavdar's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Lots of references to The Godfather. Skillfully made, strong acting. Too violent, not very original.

  15. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Impressive. I wasn't nearly expecting to enjoy this so much. The writing and character development is fantastic and the story is tense and gripping - the action is awesome and similar in a way to City of God. But this film is so much more and had the potential to be better than the aforementioned...

  16. raggiodisole's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Tough job in a tough place. Nothing fascist about this. Put people in uncompromising positions, and they cannot compromise

  17. Noam's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Entertaining and fast paced action film depicting Rio's cyclical violence and corruption.

  18. Steve G.'s rating of the film Elite Squad

    Although admirably ambitious in the width of its story, none of its strands are particularly interesting and Elite Squad ends up being a jack of all trades and master of none, Very disappointing.

  19. Anita G's rating of the film Elite Squad

    what energy this film has ! brutal, yes and possibly controversial in its content - but all the better for it. The production values are excellent - direction, lighting, design all work extremely well together and enhance rather than distract the natural style.

  20. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Brazillians know how to make serious action movies.

  21. tomfdzv's rating of the film Elite Squad

  22. anarresti's rating of the film Elite Squad

    This the perfect counterpart to 2002 City of God, and should be seen along with Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, the 2010 sequel. Violence is a very complex thing in Brazil and the police behaviour is part of it. The 2010 sequel goes further into it. It's hard for me to talk too much about it, and I don't want to be patronizing nor judgemental, not being brazillian. I've been in Brazil, love it and seen more than this.

  23. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Ottimo lavoro di Padilha,che colpisce certamente nel segno e scava un solco nella coscienza di un Paese che nel quotidiano vive queste tremende situazioni.Bellissimi i movimenti nelle incursioni,e durissimo l'attacco alla classe borghese,ritenuta vera responsabile del degrado e del proliferare del banditismo.Mi è piaciuto meno l'addestramento,che mi da sempre l'idea di giustificare certi comportamenti.Gran pellicola.

  24. Tigrão's rating of the film Elite Squad

    Great action scenes, and some clever writing makes it worth watching, but I thought the plot and the pacing was a bit loose.
