Very funny parody of American police films, where Edmilson Filho manages to make a great mix of Renato Aragão with Jackie Chan. The mood ranges from the innocent to the sophisticated, with great jokes and great balances, always keeping laughter in high frequency.
The rest of the cast gets into the mood very well, from the famous to the unknown, with emphasis on the always great Matheus Nachtergale, perfect in the one-two with Edmislon, and Falcão showing enormous talent and presence on the scene.
The direction is great, fluid, competent in humor and great action scenes for national cinema. The fighting choreographies, obviously inspired by Jackie Chan's films, are surprising for their quality, with agility, humor and great editing.
The national version of the classic song of "Beverly Hills Cop", "The Heat Is On", was fantastic. Full of quotes from stars and action films from the 80s and 90s, the film is delicious.
It has countless hilarious and clever scenes, something rare in national comedies. The scene where Edmilson and Matheus need to pretend to be a gay couple to enter an event is sensational, without appeals or extremisms, showing the immense talent of the two actors. The scene in which Edmilson discovers that the Chinese restaurant only has Northeasterners is a great idea.
Every technical part is excellent, with a few minor slips in the sound. Great national comedy that stands out from the no-brainer and repetitive comedies that multiply in Brazil, even from Leandro Hassun, who after he lost weight and wanted to become a dramatic actor, melted the broth. Edmilson Filho is a great heir to the innocent and fun humor of "Os Trapalhões", but with his own personality.
