Powerful, thought provoking, and easily the best Brazilian film this year.

15 years after the events of the first film, Lt.Col. Roberto Nascimento (Wagner Moura), negotiates his way upwards through the elite squad ranks, and into the vast web of corruption that lies behind the law. Taking his characters on an even deeper, more dramatic journey, director Jose Padilha discards his original formula, and delivers a slick, intelligent sequel that easily rivals the iconic first instalment.
