Based on having not seen its predecessor, I walked into Jose Padilha’s Elite Squad: The Enemy Within with the expectation that I’d be completely lost and the hope that I’d be completely entertained. One of those two came to fruition. Needless to say, the film stands apart from 2008′s Elite Squad, carrying over (based on what I’m told) only themes and energy. Having experienced round two, I can only expect to find the original to be an entertaining ride. That is, if it’s anything like The Enemy Within, it’s probably one hell of a movie.
