Elite Squad: The Enemy Within Trailer. José Padilha‘s Elite Squad: The Enemy Within (2010) movie trailer stars Wagner Moura, Seu Jorge, Tainá Müller, Irandhir Santos, and André Ramiro. Elite Squad: The Enemy Within‘s plot synopsis: “The sprawling favelas that surround Rio de Janeiro are some of the most dangerous places in the world… and it’s Captain Nascimento’s job to take down the gangs that run them. Although his methods are violent, he’s very good at his job. When he’s promoted to a powerful government position, he thinks he’ll finally be able to finish the job- but instead finds out that he’s only made things easier for the dirty cops and corrupt politicians that are truly running the show.
Nascimento faces a new enemy: the militias. To hit upon the system that dominates the Rio de Janeiro, he discovers that the problem is much bigger than he thought. He needs to balance the challenge of pacifying a city occupied by the crime with constant worries about her teenage son. When the personal and professional universe of Colonel Nascimento meets, the result is explosive.”
This film goes by many titles: Tropa de Elite 2 – O Inimigo Agora É Outro and Tropa de Elite 2. We posted the first but Brazilian (with English subtitles) trailer for this film here: Elite Squad 2 (2010) Movie Trailer. This is the domestic (US) movie trailer for the film. The Brazilian has almost completely different footage than this movie trailer does.
Elite Squad 2 looks like a great action film but I would suggest seeing the first film in the series Elite Squad or Tropa de Elite before seeing this one so the main character is put into context.
