Netflix viewers claim new action drama is the 'best series' as they beg ... trends now
Netflix fans have been raving about an action-packed new series, branding it one of 'the best shows' they have seen on the streaming platform.
Described as an 'epic cops-and-robbers action thriller', Criminal Code sees a team of investigators trying to find a mountain of money that has been stolen in a large-scale robbery at the Brazil-Paraguay border.
Diligently using DNA evidence to find over 50 men involved in the crime is no easy feat, but for federal officer officer Benício (Rômulo Braga) the mission is more than work - it's personal.
Directed and produced by Heitor Dhalia, and written by Bernardo Barcellos, Criminal Codes follows lone-wolf Benicio as he continues to go rogue on investigations.
But his behaviour is not totally amiss, as he is on the hunt for the thieves who killed his partner during a huge prison break three months prior.
