Product Description

From the creators of Braquo and the writer of A Prophet comes the incendiary series 2 of Braquo. Rejected by their peers and superiors alike, Eddy and his renegade team suffer the shame and disgrace of going from hunters to the hunted. Caught in the crossfire of a gang war, the road to redemption will be long and difficult, and they can no longer rely on themselves alone to avoid a total fall from grace.

3.0 out of 5 stars A hastily written mess 26 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Season 1 was fantastique, so I couldn't wait for Season 2. What a shame to report that it does not match up.

The problem isn't the actors, it's the plot. It's a mess, clichéd and ridden with so many holes I could write for a solid day on them. To reveal them would reveal the plot, so I won't, other than to say that the least of the problems is 'who is looking after Caplin's dog these days!'

Whereas in Season 1 we were given quite a broad scope of the lives of our bunch of sultry heroes, in this season we don't get half as much and so instead have more violence. Characters come and go, bang bang bang, and with some of them go any hopes for the plot sticking to credible and believable gangster and police characters for this season and any others to come. Some established characters go, bang bang bang, with the build up, execution and coverage of both the pre and post events far too sudden. Some of these characters were so key to Season 1 and 2 that there sudden exits made me want to hit pause so that I could give them the due moment of silence and contemplation that they, as characters and actors, deserved.

As for the foundations that have been laid for Season 3, it looks 1970s Bond-villain-esque ridiculous. I won't be partaking. Non!

What a wonderful follow-up to the first season! You just can't stop watching, it's that good. Not for the faint-of-heart, though! For everyone else: please do yourself a favour and buy this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant French TV 24 July 2012
By J. E. Parry VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Firstly, this is fiction. French policing is not really like this. However an adviser on the original story was actually a policeman at the centre of a scandal on which the programme is based.

Yes, there are plot holes but you get that in every programme, even the best ones that last along time. CSI, The Shield and The Wire were not perfect in themselves.

However this programme out shines a lot of other crime series. Even my wife, who is not a great lover of the genre, got hooked as I watched this.

The characters are appealing in there own right and the major protaganists are all develooped as the series goes on. It ends on a cliff hanger each week and stories are woven into the plot and later developed. This is a programme that may require a suspension of belief on occasion but what programme or film doesn't?

However this is head and shoulders above most of the things that we see on British TV. AS I said to a French colleague, who also watches the programme, all criminals in France appear to be immigrants, politicians, industrialists or the police themselves. It never seems to be ordinary people :-)

3.0 out of 5 stars Over the top action 13 July 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved series one but this one stretches credibility a bit too far. The opening shoot out in a peaceful suburban street ratchets up the gore factor - plenty of blood shooting out of bodies - but does away with a logical and coherent plot. However, the Eddy Caplan character is cool and the actors play their parts with panache. A third series has been set up, by a preposterous plot device, but I will still watch it even if I have some reservations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh oh! 25 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After having enjoyed Series 1, I expected more of this series. Unfortunately, the central idea that made the first series so enjoyable appears to have run its course. The acting and direction are still to the same high standard but credibility has gone out the fenetre and the gap between cops and crooks has vanished completely. That last point is not necessarily a killer, but when the cops are as bad as this it is hard to empathize with any predicaments they encounter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Braquo Series 2 18 July 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fabulous !!! It doesn't need anymore words than that, Series 1 was superb, on the edge of your seat stuff and this series is just as brilliant, the only problem is that I watched it all in one sitting and now have to wait for Series 3 !! Such a shame we don't produce programmes as good and gritty as this over here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic French drama 20 Jun 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Really enjoying series 2 of Braquo after reading some mixed reviews.

Series 1 ended on a cliff hanger and this series follows right where we left the team and just gets better. That means more tension, more violence and more trouble for Caplan. This series features strong acting from all the leads and an exciting ( if somewhat unlikely) storyline which this time benefits from script by the writer of A Prophet and Mesrine.

French drama, both TV and film is just getting stronger and making UK stuff look Like a poor copy.

Acting is excellent and the filming really captures the mood of the French underworld. I hope that there is a third series.
