Storyline

Based on a book about an infamous real scandal in the Dutch crime scene, the film aims at exposing the horrors caused by corruption on both sides of the law. A rookie policeman is coerced into obtaining secret information from a childhood friend turned gangster. The childhood friend turns informant. But his revelations are hardly the most important "leaks" in the story. In fact, the new relationship between old friends goes all wrong, and the young policeman becomes increasingly involved in a deadly web of lies, crimes, treason, and revenge, all seemingly out of control. Written by up and out

Decent Dutch genre movie.

I must say I quite enjoyed this film from Jean van de Velde. His script is far from original, to be sure, but it has a lot going for it. Victor Löw is entertaining as the driven friend from hell whose reappearance in a young policeman's life changes the destination of all concerned. Cas Jansen has the innocent looks his character requires and, although a bit tame in the beginning, he gets better as the film progresses to its inevitable violent conclusion. There are several more than adequate action scenes for the fans to enjoy: my favourite is the one where two hitmen chase the young cop through an animal sanctuary where he is forced to use the cover of some horses to get away clean. Production values are above standard although you better don't hold your breath if you want to wait for some original camerawork. The attraction of Lek, I believe, lies in the director's willingness to give the audience what it wants. There are some nasty, violent set pieces that will delight the hard core cop thriller freaks. As far as brainless entertainment goes, this is as good as anything made in Hong Kong these days.
