Love and Honor wraps up the Yoji Yamada's trilogy. It's as good as the previous ones, albeit in a more smaller scale. Can't believe the actress that plays Kayo had no other credits before this.

Tropa de Elite 2 is even better that the first, shifting the scathing social critique to a higher plane. It's also much more nihilist, because how can things change when the problems run so deep in the social fabric?
It also works better as a film. The characters are moderately developed, tension is created, et al. Almost makes me wish to go see the Robocop remake...
