The Assailant 2009

Based on the life of a legendary capoeira fighter from Bahia, "Besouro" spins a fantastic tale of a young Brazilian man of African descent in search of his mission.

Had great expectations for this movie, being the first Brazilian action/adventure movie and all (or at least, the first one not based in modern "gangs vs. police" struggles). But alas, I was disappointed. This is one of those "all the good parts are in the trailer" movies.
