Elite Squad 2: The Enemy Within

The biggest film in South American cinema history, sees revered Lieutenant-Colonel Roberto Nascimento and his second in command André Matias facing battles both on the streets and within the corrupt political system of Rio de Janeiro.Following the bloody aftermath of a disastrously handled prison riot, Nascimento gets caught in a bloody political dispute that involves not only government officials, but also the deadly paramillitary groups known as the milicias. Adding to this are his troubles at home, as his ex-wife is now married to the newly elected State Representative and his thirteen year old son is becoming increasingly estranged from his intense and emotionally distant father.Featuring scenes of breathtaking action and compelling drama, José Padilha's critically acclaimed blockbuster is based on a blend of intense research and real events, presenting a devastating vision of modern Rio and one man's fight against the system.
