Hey guys, i dont post much around here but i think i should share this movie with you.....since most of you will probably never hear of it.

Its about the brazilian movie called Elite Squad ("Tropa de Elite" in portuguese).

The movie itself is very similar to City of God ("Cidade de Deus), but Elite Squad is the other side of the coin. In this one you can see the reality of the "favela's" from the BOPE's (Special Police Operations Batallion in Portuguese) point of view.

I must warn you, the movie is kind explicit and shows the thruth about the actions and tactics used by the BOPE from Rio de Janeiro (aswell from other SpecOps around Brazil) to combat organized crime.

Its a must see imo.
I hope you enjoy as much as i did.
