Elite Squad (Netflix)

Apparently it's Elite Squad 2, but it's billed as Elite Squad on Netflix instant.

It's Brazilian, so it's in one of them foreign languages so if you don't read good nevermind.

Good action flick on the police/politicians/drug/slums of Rio de Janerio. Very entertaining, esp, I would assume, for any LEOs who are hindered by ROE - these guys just decide to go into a slum and systematically machine gun down the bad guys.

Lots of corruption, violence, psychological issues, etc.

Overall I thought it a decent movie worth my time. I never saw the first one but the reviews stated that it's not necessary to see Elite Squad one and I didn't feel at a loss as to any characters, etc.
