French Cop Drama - Not to be missed.By a customer , 12 May 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]There is only one word for this crime thriller - Brilliant! I am not a particular fan of subtitles but the strong storyline and excellent acting really tell the story and the french accents give it a real gritty atmosphere. The story revolves around a team of detectives who believe that the end justifies the means - they are being constantly pursued by internal affairs who believe that their style of policing should be outlawed. What with the villains on one side always looking for revenge and internal affairs on the other the team go from one scrape to another. Absolutely unmissable!

Excellent dramaBy a customer , 03 Oct 2013Excellently thought out drama with twists to the very end, think sopranos meets southland, can't wait to watch the second series.

Brilliant BraquoBy a customer , 29 Jun 2013I cannot say enough good things about Braquo, it has gritty realism, a fantastic script, that is pacey and addictive. It has interesting rounded characters that make you care about them, even those amongst us that hate subs will find this very hard to resist
Pretty good, but "Spiral"it's not...By Tontoe (4 reviews) , 21 Jun 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Well acted, beautifully shot with very watch-able characters, great atmospheric locations and a stylish grainy dark tone pervading the whole thing. Some fantastic set-pieces too. The high-level corruption and dark underbelly of the criminal underworld is vividly and viscerally portrayed. Reminds me of 'The Shield' with a Gallic twist. I found myself irritated by some of the McGuffins with regard to plot and character, and the thin characterisation of the female characters [all credit to the actors for managing it convincingly!]. But then this is a fantasy, not reality. And the action moves on, with tension piling up, so these are soon forgotten. Despite some misgivings along the way, I watched through to the end, and found myself wanting more at the end of each episode. Can't say fairer than that. I'll be looking out for the next one.
A Must SeeBy Oolala (1 review) , 25 May 2013This cop series kept me watching the episodes back to back, I couldnt switch it off! Gritty raw drama. Excellent viewing.
