English blog chronicles impact of mega-hit Brazilian flick about super-violent cops

HWBrazil sez,
I was one of an estimated 11.5M people in Brazil who watched a leaked workprint of "BOPE: Tropa de Elite" before it broke cinema records in Brazil last weekend. The movie is blowing the %$#@ up here.

Since the film's *protagonists* are elite Rio police who shoot dealers, execute corrupt police and freely use torture, sometimes on children, this is crazy. Unlicensed BOPE dolls are selling in the same neighborhoods the real life cops shoot their way through.

So I started an English blog about the film's impact. Note: this is the actual logo the actual police unit uses:.
