Kicks is a TV movie at best..
21 February 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the 'Sneak Preview' last night and I have to say this is the worst Dutch movie since 'Vet Hard'. I was quite excited about seeing this because it was made by the people who created 'Shouf Shouf Habibi' and Dutch movie I really enjoyed.

Kicks has got like three stories to it. On one side you've got these two Moroccan young boys who like to rap and seem to think all Dutch people are racists. Then you've got the twisted story about a commercial maker who wants to make a feature film involving bestiality and illegal immigrants. The last story is about a Moroccan guy and girl who are about the get married when the girl tells the guy she isn't a virgin anymore.

The movie lacked comedy, lacked story.. Afterwards I heard several people say how the hated the movie and they also didn't know what it was about. Besides Mimoun Oaïssa is being type casted far too much together with all of his Maroccan friends. Please! Aren't there any other Dutch/Maroccan actors out there?!?

Kicks is a TV movie at best and even that would disgrace to the term TV-movie.
