«Watching this gritty tale of murderous rivals and corrupt cops brings the very real, very desperate reality of impoverished urban citizens worldwide to vivid life. Here, Brazilian slums and military rule compel many kids, teens and young adults to turn towards various crimes because they feel as if no other options exist. Such a depiction transcends national boundaries. Making an effort to view and understand the social, political and economic components of poverty and violence is the first step towards finding viable long-term solutions to cure them.»
