Elite Squad: The Enemy Within

Opens Friday, Nov 18, 2011 Synopsis: Brazil's toughest cop is out to stop some bad men in blue uniforms in this sequel to Jose Padilha's international hit Tropa de Elite (aka Elite Squad). Capt. Nascimento (Wagner Moura) is the leader of Rio de Janeiro's BOPA Squad, a special police battalion designed to deal with critical situations. When a riot in a prison turns into a standoff between Nascimento and Fraga (Irandhir Santos), a left-wing activist married to Nascimento's ex-wife, things take a turn for the worse and Nascimento's superiors re-evaluate his position with the BOPA. Rather than fire him, Nascimento is transferred to an intelligence gathering team, and he begins gathering evidence against Brazil's top drug lords. However, it turns out that criminals aren't Nascimento's only enemies; Col. Fabio (Milhem Cortaz), a high-ranking member of the military, is also running a drug trafficking ring on the side, and Nascimento and his crew learn just how corrupt Brazil's military and government officials really are. Soon Nascimento and his crew set out to clean out the bad apples in power with the same ruthlessness they showed the criminals in the private sector. Tropa de Elite: O Inimigo Agora e Outro (aka Elite Squad: The Enemy Within and Elite Squad 2) was an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Wagner Moura, André Ramiro, Andre Mattos, Sandro Rocha, Maria Ribeiro Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
