The first Elite Squad movie was an uncompromising look at the war between the cartels who rule the favelas of Rio and BOPE, a world-class tactical squad that do the work too dangerous for regular police officers. It gave a broader look at the criminal epidemic that engulfs the Brazilian metropolis, following in the footsteps of City of God, but ultimately serves as a prologue to Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, which takes everything Elite Squad established and enriches it.
Producer Andrew Kosove spoke to The Playlist this week about the warily anticipated remakes/reboots of both Blade Runner and Point Break.

It’s been five years since the subterfuge of the IMF has graced our screens. Now it is back, and not a moment too soon, if you ask me. Ethan Hunt and his team of agents are up to their necks in counter-terrorism hijinks again, in a film that harks back to the original Mission: Impossible series with explosive results.
