Tropa de Elite is a Brazilian film released on October 5, 2007. The movie is a semi-fictional account of the BOPE, the Special Police Operations Battalion of the Rio de Janeiro Military Police. It is the second feature film and first fiction film of director José Padilha, who had previously directed the acclaimed documentary Bus 174. The script was written by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Bráulio Mantovani, based on the book Elite da Tropa by sociologist Luiz Eduardo Soares and two former BOPE captains, André Batista and Rodrigo Pimentel.

The film won the Golden Bear at the 2008 Berlin Film Festival.
