DAMN GOOD as long as you don't compare it with the real story about Klaas Bruinsma.
6 September 2004 | by Cruel_ManSee all my reviews

This movie is excellent for Dutch understandings, it's even DAMN GOOD as long as you don't compare it with the real story about Klaas Bruinsma.

It's a movie about Friendship, Loyalty and Treason within the crime-circuit.

The cast of this movie really gave life to the characters, witch made this movie nice to watch if you like the genre.

For all you people who like soundtracks; Intwine - Cruel Man is the maintrack for this movie. Check it Out!

I can recommend this movie if you loved "Van God Los", you'll surely love this, if not I'm sorry.
