yet another one
10 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Jos Vreeswijk (Raymond Thiry) is a former criminal who wakes up with a gun and a dead man next to him. It's the morning before his wedding to Caroline. He reconnects with his former running mates, musclehead Bobbie and coke genius Coca Inez. He is accused of stealing 20 kilos of coke. He is forced to recover the drugs before it puts Caroline in danger.

This is yet another Guy Ritchie wannabe gangster crime movie. It has some of the style, quite a bit of the energy, but it lacks a charismatic lead. The story is convoluted but that is the norm for these movies. It just doesn't have the originality or anything compelling. It's all very familiar and not in a good way.
