Hauer hits his stride: Don thy trenchcoat gentle warrior
26 May 1999 | by PVOMSee all my reviews

Of all the obscure titles that popped up with RUTGER HAUER smeared all over it, usually released to cash in on his recent success, this is the diamond in the ruff you've been searching for. Here, he is one half of an Amsterdam cop/buddy team. The values of the culture alone make this film worthwhile. Watching Hauer's partner smoke a joint and cough, muttering "good hash" is priceless. When he's not wooing the ladies, he's exchanging banter with his partner and chasing other ladies. By no means a great film, the dubbing sees to that. But the Hauer vocal from "Dandelions is back in full effect. Made on the eve of Hauer's successful crossover to major stardom (with "NightHawks" and "Blade Runner"), this film is quite telling of things to come. Hauer's whole career is mapped out here and he is in fine form.
