This is a typical Dick Maas production. Cheesy to the max, limited plot, laughable dialogue and comic action sequences. Anyone who has seen anything by Maas will recognise these as his trademark and just go with the flow. I was dreading watching this movie from all the comments on IMDB but while it is hardly a classic (it's pretty poor really), it IS very entertaining. It's a real no brainer that passes the time quite nicely and while artistically his original "De Lift" is a better movie, I found this one to be more entertaining. Score out of 10? 5/10 for the film itself, 7.5/10 for entertainment value. PS~ Forgot to mention the acting.... probably for the best ;-)
