Typical Dutch movie from the eighties
13 March 2012 | by bob-316-799818See all my reviews

Typical Dutch movie from the eighties.. almost made without any interest for the viewer, the low budget is visible (Is it really necessary to make the sign for 'Vandenberg Air Base' from cardboard?) Peter Faber, as usual, is acting like he reads his lines off a piece of paper right before the take (Which he probably does) The usual problem with Dutch movies of this era.. lots of cursing, nonfunctional sex, idiotic hyperbole and the movie radiates, nay shouts: CHEAP! Interaction, dialog, props: amateurish. The reason i give this movie a score of 1 is that i look at it just to be annoyed.
