Storyline

Bennie, a clumsy criminal who's touchy about his weight, teams up with his adoptive father's biological (serial killer) son, his employees who in his absence turned his snack-bar into a quiche bakery, a suicidal manic-depressive woman and a Yougoslavian who keeps blowing things up unintended. They need to get 300000 Euro to get Bennies father a new liver. Complicating matters are that Bennie is being stalked by gangsters who want him to pay back a debt, the employees are more interested in cooking than in criminality, nobody can communicate with the Yugoslavian, the adoptive and biological son don't get along, and everything that can go wrong does go wrong - leaving a path of damaged buildings, people and - especially - vehicles behind.

Trivia

Katja drives a car backwards and hits another vehicle, causing her car to flip onto its roof. When the stunt was filmed, the car slid ten meters on the road, which it wasn't supposed to do. Luckily the stunt driver was unharmed. A shot of the car sliding to a stop had to be added to make the scene flow correctly. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

[Bennie talks to Dr. John, who is treating a moaning man]
Bennie: Hey. Hey, you. My father just told me he's been given up. And you say you can't do anything.
Dr. John: Not much. I'm afraid Mr. Mast is no longer a candidate for an organ donation.
Bennie: Come again?
Dr. John: Mr. Mast has a very poor condition and is already at an old age...
Bennie: Because he's had a tough life! I'd like to see you at that age!

Pleasantly Simple
13 February 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I went to see Vet hard (or as it is called in Belgium 'volle gas' ) with expectations that weren't too high. My experience with former dutch attempts at action movies, especially the ones as far back as the 'flodder' movies and other dick maas attempts like 'amsterdamned', were not too good. And the trailer of vet hard did not promise any improvement.

What a sigh of relief I could breathe when I watched the movie! The story is erratic and makes no sense at times, but the movie does not aspire or pretend to be a feat of high story telling ability. Instead it focuses on it's best assets; fun action sequences which are exhilarating at times, despite the limited budget, and slapstick-like humor provided by a fantastic Jack Wouterse in the role of 'Bennie' and Peter van den Begin as 'Vuk'.

The acting overall ranges from adequate to excellent, the best being provided by Kurt Rogiers who portrays a necrophiliac serial-rapist in a way that he is almost likable. Jack Wouterse plays a convincing and extremely funny overweight Bennie and carries the role of the main character well. I wasn't too exited by the acting of Bracha van Doesburgh however, who looks great, but, as a fist timer tries her best to portray her character as believable as possible but fails in doing so at times.

All in all Vet Hard has it's weak points, a lot of them actually, but it is easy to forgive them. The movie was made with love and care and it is clearly visible the cast had a lot of fun making it.

An 8 out of 10
