First of all, i'd like to say that i haven't seen Code 37, the series. I just hope it's a lot better than this movie i've just watched. it starts out with Veerle Baetens who gets awarded for her courage for being a law enforcer. Then you see a guy in a sex theater getting a little hand-action, then he gets clobbered down and assaulted. The team of Hannah Maes (Veerle Baetens) jumps on this crime to investigate it. After a long and very slow while you find out everything you already knew. Its all pretty predictable. Just a typical cop-movie from Belgium with some feminine influences. Excuse me, ladies, but this movie has a little bit too much of emotion aspect for being a thriller. At the end you find out something of Hannah's past (that has probably been a big question mark in the series, but not important for the moviegoer) and that's about it. Case closed with some... emotion aspect. I think this could've been a very good movie, but with the lame red thread of hannah's life throughout the movie, the cliché-story and bad acting (sorry, Michael Pas is normally a fine actor, but he can't hold up his role) it just turned into a TV-movie that is not worth more credit than my rating. I must say that Veerle Baetens really does a genuine effort to keep up with her role and she plays it great, but she has bad luck with the scenario. Fabulous actress, bad movie.
