Trailer for Elite Squad: The Enemy Within which is in cinemas from Friday 12th August 2011





 

Revolver Entertainment bring us ELITE SQUAD: THE ENEMY WITHIN, a foreign language film directed by Jose Padilha.

In the film, Wagner Moura is Captain Nascimento, commander-in-chief of Rio de Janeiro’s BOPE (Special Police Operations Battalion), later promoted to sub-Secretary of Security for the State. After a disastrous operation on a prison riot, Nascimento gets caught in a bloody political dispute that involves not only government officials, but also deadly paramilitary groups known as the militias. Nascimento quickly emerges as victim of his own success – in tackling Rio’s drug gangs, he creates a vacuum filled by protection rackets supported by corrupt police.

 Dismantling the complex web of allegiances is a job made all the more dangerous by Nascimento’s realisation that the very people that he should be able to rely on to support his mission could be his deadliest enemies. Adding to this professional challenge are his troubles at home, as Nasciemento’s 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. However, soon enough, his professional and personal life violently collide as he realises his work attracts danger to his family. Is it too late to save his loved ones as well as the city he has worked so hard to protect?

The film is out tomorrow in select cinemas across the UK and with a string of rave reviews, this film is certainly one to see if you are a fan of world cinema!
