In director Jose Padilha's new international thriller/action film, Elite Squad, a couple of best friends join Rio de Janeiro's Military Police Department, becoming part of one of the most elite police squads (the title has arrived!) in the world. They face down the most dangerous drug lords in the country while still trying to maintain a semblance of normality in their private lives. Violent men doing violent things in scary places to defeat bad people? Mayhap this has the makings of a movie to see, but only time will tell. Check out the trailer after the jump.
