I know it's a couple of years old but I watched it recently. Has anybody else seen it? I don't really watch too many foreign films but I thought this was pretty good. Those are some bad little mutha f***as that have absolutely no regard for another humans life. Just wanted to get some opinions on the film and if you haven't seen it, I recommend you do so.

Loved it. Actually one of my favorite movies. Crazy to think that actually happens every day there.

Excellent story. There are a ton of fantastic movies out of Brazil in the last several years. Another fantastic film dealing with the law and its corruption in Brazil is Elite Squad. Check that out.

Yeah, I can't remember how I came across this movie--I think a friend reccomended it to me a couple years ago when it was a new release on DVD, and it's one of the best movies I've ever seen. I'm not big on subtitles, but when a movies this F'n good who cares.

Amazing movie... it's in my top 10. There are tons of foreign moives that are very good. I agree with people that said to watch City of Men. I heard Tropa de elite is also very good but havn't got around to watching it yet.

I just got tis movie Sin Nombre, from the same director I think. The subtitles don't work on it so I haven't watched yet but I've heard very good things about this and City of God. I'm going to try to find it now.
