Nah, it was OK
4 August 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of the two movies dutch TV showed after the death of director Verstappen (the abysmal Blue Movie was the other). In this we have buddy cops Hauwer en De Gooijer (both big names in dutch cinema) having to solve a mystery including drugs and murder. And there's some strange cult involved...

The movie has it's silly moments (in particular near the ending, and with the 'lip-girl'), but after watching the crap Blue Movie was this was pretty enjoyable. This time around there's actually a story and both main actors play well (you can see Hauwer getting a big name later on) and it's fun to watch a young De Groot in action.

I guess it's a bit of dutch movie history (whatever that may be), but overall, nothing to get too excited about. 6/10.
