This movie is Brazilian which means it's either about sex, drugs or violence. In this case, it's about drugs and violence. You follow the story of a drug cop as he tries to clean stuff up. I was able to follow the plot pretty well, but had a hard time caring about any of the characters. There was an adequate amount of violence, but it assumed too much knowledge of Brasil for me to fully enjoy it.
I recommend this movie only if you've run out of ideas.
