After the robbery of a bomb and the death of several secret agents who tried recovered it, Minister Boyero recruits five agents from some Spanish local police agencies to preserve the existence of Cuerpo de Élite (Elite Corp.), a secret team created in the 70's during the Spanish Transition. The new agents are Santi (Madrid's Mobility Agent), Lola (Andalusia's Civil Guard), Pep (Catalonia's Mosso d'Esquadra), Gorka (Basque Country's Ertzaina) and Byron (an Ecuatorian immigrant who claims born in Cuenca, member of Spanish Legion). The new Cuerpo de Élite is called to conclude the unfinished mission of the previous team: recover an atomic bomb from Palomares's Broken Arrow (an infamous accident where four atomic bombs fell in Spain's coast in 1966) before it be exploded. But the bad connivance between them will endanger to fulfill the mission, in addition of a woman who tries to alert Santi about the hidden truth behind of Cuerpo de Élite.Written by
With a title like this I was half expecting a parody of the very popular Brazilian movies "Tropa de Elite" (also known as Elite Squad around the world, the first of the two movies winning the Golden Bear at the Berlinale). Having said that, this is a movie from Spain, so that alone should have been a giveaway, that my suspicion was completely wrong in the first place.
Someone has compared this to Police Academy though and I reckon that is a far better thing to say and expect. While this has a much higher budget than the movies from the 80s, this doesn't mean that it is way superior. I'd even argue that most have fond memories of the Police Academy franchise. Whatever the case, I've seen way worse movies than this being much more successful. So while this isn't really great, I'd say "not guilty" (when it comes to the charge of not being funny)
