Celebrated with worldwide acclaim, this powerful true story of crime and redemption has won numerous prestigious awards around the globe! The streets of the world's most notorious slum, Rio de Janeiro's "City of God" are a place where combat photographers fear to tread, police rarely go and residents are lucky if they live to the age of 20. In the midst of the oppressive crime and violence, a frail and scared young boy will grow up to discover that he can view the harsh realities of his surroundings with a different eye, the eye of an artist. In the face of impossible odds, his brave ambition to become a professional photographer becomes a window into his world and ultimately his way out!

Two of my friends walked out before seeing the entire dreadful extravaganza. If I want to experience
the pain and suffering of people in poverty, all I need to do is turn on the Los Angeles nightly news
to see the latest drive-by shooting in Compton, or a dead body found in a dumpster in San Dimas, or the latest group of illegal immigrants arrested and deported, or the latest DEA drug bust
Prefer reveling in the extraordinary scenic beauty of Rio, the incredible Brazilian cuisine, the fantastic music,
the world-class Carnaval, and the vitality and joy of the special people who live there.
I always judge a film by whether or not I will view it again. I'll donate my copy to someone who prefers suffering
over joy and happiness.
The violence was too much. Shooting left and right, pretty much the entire movie.
The sadistic way that the main character was laughing when he was going to shoot a crying, terrified child is sick to my stomach. How can people like seeing that crap?
I don't need to see these type of scenes to see what goes in a favela.
The story line was that a guy made out of the favela in these type of horrible conditions. But the excessive violence killed the interest for me.
I didn't even want my family to walk in on me watching this movie.
I guess I have to keep searching for a good Portuguese movie.
There is a scene of maiming and torturing a crying, begging nine or ten year old boy that made ME want to kill the director because I will never get it out of my mind for the rest of my life. I have had Brazilians tell me that the favelas are really like this, but it is hard to believe. This in the end is a self-indulgent violent fantasy that slaked the filmmaker's basest instincts but leaves us feeling like vomiting. People were crying and leaving the movie in the theater I was in. Save your soul from such appalling baseness and don't see it.
