When Rem almost gets hit by Heineken's car; you can clearly see the "BelCompany" store in the background, a store that specializes in (mostly) cell phones. Not only were these hard to come by in 1983, but the company itself wasn't founded until 12 years later. See more »
Going on the knowlegde of the original story I was looking forward watching this. But what a disappointment. This might possible be one of the worst Dutch productions of the last years. No suspense, rushing plot line, bad acting, bad cinemography. The only highlight was seeing Hauer in action again.
Especially in the middle part where there was opportunity for some suspense and story building, the movie seemed to speed up like crazy. Therefor the moment between ransom and captioning the bad guys was ridiculously fast paced.
I struggled through the last hour to even finish it. 2 hours of my life I'm not getting back :)
