TAKE A DEEP BREATH, IT IS ONE OF THOSE
18 May 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Another one of those failing Hallervorden vehicles. It is probably meant as a parody on West-East spy films (at least the design of the credits lets one think so), but the result is no more than a series of self-repeating, tedious and childish jokes. Hallervorden's character gets his strength from inhaling nail-varnish, something I also tried to sit this one out.
