Elite Squad 2 brings back the grim Captain Nascimento, now promoted to colonel, in his latest adventure rocambulesca in search of truth.With the blockbuster first film, including the explosion of piracy that followed, Elite Squad was seen by the media as the story of the time in hours to crystallize police corruption, drug trafficking and gangsterism in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The hoax was that all fascism behind the slogans, the skull and the apparatus of war was justified because the enemy were traffickers.Significantly, the subtitle of this second film is "Now the enemy is another," because it stuck well to the first story, as the Birth clearly states along the plot, to realize that all their efforts to reduce trafficking corruption have not diminished police, one of the silliest oversimplifications of the first film. Impressive, including the amount of explanation that the viewer is subjected. It's almost as if the producers and director tivessesm read all the sharp criticism, including published here on the site of the PSTU, and had realized that it might be worth launching a biased blandishments to "leftist intellectuals."Turns out we're not dumb like the colonel, who throws himself eagerly into the arms of the Department of Public Safety, in its new position, only to realize later that "was playing into the system."The most amazing turnaround occurs thereafter, in a desperate attempt to make the benefactor of Birth Justice.
On its face, he bribe a deputy during a traffic stop, with the right to remove him forcibly from the car and hit him. The police repeater staffs the leader of a crusade for the truth in seconds.A person a little jealous of reality knows where it would end, we're talking real life, but this is not the case. After this it further follows knocking "big shots" as if they were paper, to the delight and applause from the audience.Nothing new on the front.George Orwell, in his memorable 1984 book, since we had shown the need for collective catharsis, in which he imagined to be views of scenes in the movie they called panic, anger and, finally, the consecration of the desired values, to the delight ( and relief) of these, worn down by relentless oppression. It is in the book, the session "two minutes of hate". The resemblance is not accidental.It created a new story from a classic tale, namely that the system can change the "inside". However, not satisfied, the film still force our intelligence and our sense of the ridiculous. For sheer excitement (catharsis) conference.
