Elite Squad: The Enemy Within Reviews
Watched this on 28/10/15
It's original was raw, brutal and mostly original, well the second film some of the nature of the first film, it provides a tension packed view of the corruption and police controlled mafia in Brazil. However, it also falls in the category of many other films based on corruption that it somewhat loses it's originality. The film is also well acted and competently directed.
Second, how did I not know about the first film? This is a sequel?
What an amazing action/polical/thriller/drama!
The story is amazing. The location feels fresh and new thanks to the fact it's not a Hollywood picture. The acting is perfect in almost every way. This is an extremely entertaining, fast-paced realistic looking film that only seems to falter a bit in the last quarter of the film.
Highly recommend this film to anyone looking for a good foreign action film that isn't martial arts, asian, yakuza, or a period piece.
Now to track down the first film!
