The life of Brazilian policeman Mariel Mariscot, who belonged to the Police elite until being accused of corruption, and of being the leader of a group of policemen who killed outlaws without a proper judgement, the so called "Esquadrão da Morte" (Death Squad). Written by
In the early seventies in Rio de Janeiro, detective Mariel Moryscötte de Mattos belonged to a special police force called "The Golden Men". This powerful group of the elite of the police was created with the intention of eliminate crime from Rio de Janeiro, and they had privileges above law to expedite their action against the outlaws. However, absolute power in wrong hands corrupts, and this group formed the "Death Squad", executing criminals without the conventional trial from the justice. "Eu Matei Lúcio Flávio" is a manipulative movie about the life of Mariel Moryscötte, one of the most known "golden man". This film is too much violent, and cheaply exploits crimes and sex, showing many deaths, naked women and simulation of sexual intercourse. The screenplay if very bad, the music score is horrible and the edition is awful. This is the first time that I see this film, and it is not worth watching it. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Eu Matei Lúcio Flávio" ("I Killed Lúcio Flávio")
