Trivia

While most of the speedboat chase was shot in Amsterdam, some scenes were shot in the nearby city of Utrecht. These involve the part where both boats jump onto the quay and plow through the chairs and tables of a terrace. Such low-lying quays can not be found in Amsterdam, only in Utrecht. See more »

Goofs

The great chase-scene starts in Amsterdam, then suddenly leads through the Canals of Utrecht, and then back to Amsterdam again. See more »

Quotes

Vermeer: What do you think she meant when she said a huge black monster with giant claws?
Eric Visser: I don't know, but I hope your mother-in-law has an alibi.
Vermeer: UGH!

A surprise from Holland...
28 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Technically, "Amsterdamned" is about as good as any average American thriller about serial killers and tough cops; Dick Maas directs competently, shows a sense of humor and the unusual setting is an extra plus (how often do you get to see a boat chase in the Amsterdam canals? Not even the Bond pictures exploited that opportunity). It's just that the whole concept of the film treads on all-too-familiar territory, and that there are a few too many red herrings and a few too many climaxes. (**1/2)
