To be honest I was let down with this, after the harrowing, depressing kill fest of the original this is actually pretty tame. Not much killing and not much action either, there's alot of talk and plot layout which is fine but you do find your mind starting to wander haha

The cast are all excellent along with the locations and sweaty, grimy, run down look of the whole film, its so realistic it puts you off wanting to go anywhere near Brazil for a holiday ;) Some of the scenery is truely amazing though.

Overall its quite boring until the final sequence but even that is average, and then its over all too quick. Not a bad film but not really engaging either.

Not quite the punch of the original "City of God", but a solid sequel nonetheless of life in the ghetto in Rio de Janeiro.

Confesso que minha não simpatia por filmes nacionais aqui tem o seu auge. Não da para falar nada.

Worthy successor to its predecessor, City of God, but doesn't pack the same punch or adrenaline rush. Instead, City of Men focuses more on the human element in Rio de Janeiro, and those outside of the brutal gang violence the area is so renowned for. And ultimately, it goes to show just how hard it is to distance yourself... and your family, from the warfare. Amazing cinematography, and well shot, it truly was an eye-catching spectacle.

Not the epic that City of God was, but certainly a worthy follow-up. The multi stranded plot didn't hold up quite as well as the film's predecessor.

No where close to City Of God. Still good though.

Buena historia sobre la amistad, la lealtad (y traición) en medio de la dura vida en las favelas de Río, pero ni cerca de lo intensa y envolvente de Ciudad de Dios.

The script had nicely shaped elements, good little stories. They could have been put together in a better way.

Competent second film in the City of... series, with superb colourful cinematography to match the original film. Although the plot is not always as engaging as before, it is still has a deep storyline.

Anyone who liked the Legendary "City of Gods'' will definitely like this one too.

Not as gritty or powerful as City of God but still a decent watch. Instead of focusing on the gangs as in City of God, it focuses on two 18 year old boys. The film is similar to City of God, but with a more light-hearted feel to it. The film also has similar cinematography

This is a decent film, better than average but unfortunately its hard to judge it independent of City of God. Though this is a very decent film, it never reaches the heights to its 'prequel'.
