Another Great French Thriller
1 January 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

During a routine night patrol, the police officer Bastien (Emeric Marchand), his long-term partner Julie (Cécile De France) and the newcomer cop Simon (Fred Testot) are called by a neighbor complaining of the noise in another apartment. Bastien knocks the door and out of the blue, the dweller opens the door and shoots his chest. Julie shoots the man that is complete high and apprehends a strange fluorescent yellow drug. Sooner they learn that the man is the son of a politician from the parliament and in the hearing they are forced to sign a statement telling that the shot was accidental and deny the evidence of drugs. When the man recovers in the hospital, he sues the police officers and the police department does not support them. However, their chief tells them that they should seek evidences of the trafficker that had sold the drugs to the man. Julie and Simon go undercover to the underworld of drugs trafficking posing of dealers from the south and find that the drug is named sphinx. Sooner they are introduced to the powerful drug lord Marc (Julien Boisselier) who is responsible for the supply of sphinx. Now they are alone in a way with no return dealing with a dangerous gang.

"Gardiens de l'Ordre" is another great French thriller. The gorgeous Cécile De France and Emeric Marchand show a great chemistry, supported by a good story of two police officers that are forced to go rogue and stay in the blurred thin line between the worlds of law and order where they belong, and crime and drugs where they are forced to join. The screenplay is not totally original and uses a couple of clichés, but the result is a good film that never disappoints. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Guardiões da Ordem" ("Guardians of the Order")
