Thirteen years on from his first outing, Lt. Colonel Nascimento (Moura) is back to take the fight corrupt coppers within Rio's police department. Cue several shades of bloody violence as Nascimento's BOPE squad takes on deadly gangs of paramilitaries.
A marked improvement on the first film, it's easy to see why this was such a smash in Brazil. Breathless, brutal and thrilling, it's a gut punch of an action movie.
