    A foreign film and made in Brazil , where a captain of a secret society of police chronicles the life and violence in Rio de Janeiro , a slightly exciting movie.

  1. The captain narrates in a punchy, journalistic style that gives Elite Squad an air of sociological realism--it bears a resemblance to viscerally exciting seventies urban thrillers like "The French Connection."
  2. Poorly structured and at times incoherent.

    A one-note celebration of violence-for-good that plays like a recruitment film for fascist thugs.
