Trivia

While it's never made unambiguously clear in the film, the main villain Gunter is probably German. His name is uncommon in Holland but regular in Germany, he uses several German slang words in his final scene and the coin he regularly flips is a rather obscure German 2005 reprint of an old 5 mark coin bearing the German eagle and the name and image of 'Friedrich Schiller'.

One of the last lines in the closing credits is a disclaimer stating "No Dutch persons were harmed in the making of this motion picture." See more »

So bad, it's (almost) good again! Well, entertaining at least. For all the wrong reasons.
17 December 2013 | by (Amsterdam, NL) – See all my reviews

Although just about everything about this film is bad, it's doesn't necessarily harm the viewing experience. The struggling actors evoke sympathy rather than pity, the story allows for a nice game of plot hole bingo and the editing gives you a change to see what actors are doing while they wait for their cue! Every fight has people falling too early or waiting for the punch, every dialogue has moments where you can just see the attention slowly move from one actor to the other... wait for it... and there's the next line!

It's not often you see a bad guy with a lisp, or a Mexican standoff on bikes. The English speaking Dutch being played by Dutch speaking English (yes, that's our accent, deal with it) give the whole thing an absurdistic feel, and the fight scene where the former techno-house band The Party Animals suddenly show up is so superfluous it made me look up how to spell superfluous.

Which makes one wonder, it's strange how a film with so many redundant appearances of professional K1/kickbox/cage fighters can have such horribly choreographed fight scenes. But it does.

Really the only plus of the entire movie is Monique (Alison Carroll), with an actual British accent (thank God!) and a surprisingly convincing Tomb Raider appearance. If there were any rumours about actual actors in this film, it must've been about her. Other than that, the most desperate bunch of Dutch third rate actors has been summoned up, topped off by a (short) surprise appearance of Holland's most smirking comedian: Jörgen Raymann. You'll love it!
