Federal Police!!
3 January 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

My Older brother always giving me bad movies,this time on Blu-ray at least,this production is very ambitious bringing Michael Madsen to encrease this weak plot and without purpose,the main character Carlos Alberto Riccelli is a good actor,but several clichés became this picture nonsense at all,actually Brasilia wasn't a propper place to make a movie like this,there are many place like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo where has a strong matter about dealer's drugs...even with good casting the whole thing sunk!!!
