Kruistocht in Spijkerbroek is filmed by a predominantly English cast and with a for Dutch standards large budget; although it is not a Dutch but an international co-production. The result is a film with an international look and feel, and has an appeal for both adults that have read (or not) the well-known book with the same name by the author Thea Beckman. As the book has a very short introduction as well as quite an abrupt ending, the movie has added both a genuine introduction for the lead character to go to the past and also dealt with the end being less abrupt. But also without having read the book the film itself is a very entertaining family film where both parents but also the children can be entertained. It's quite a long film with a total playing time of over 2 hours but never has a dull moment with good digital graphics.
