Good movie, but could be better at some points
26 October 2007 | by bjorn_karlSee all my reviews

In my opinion "Kicks" could have been a great movie, if the director had been more creative at some points. In the beginning of the movie i noticed the different story-lines, and expected that the story would develop in a way like movies like "Pulp Fiction", "Go" and "Snatch": different stories within a movie would all come together at the end and would make perfect sense. That is what lacked at this movie in my opinion.

Please, don't nag about the fact that Mimoun Ouaissa and all his Moroccan friends play in every Dutch movie about Dutch Moroccans. Every one of them is one of the best Dutch-Moroccan actors we have. And besides, it's kinda the same as Rob Schneider appearing in almost every Adam Sandler movie (and the other way around). Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller: same story. I think it's funny that all Adam Sandler's friends (Allen Covert, Peter Dante, Jonathan Loughran) appear in lots of movies he plays in (like Big Daddy, Little Nicky etc.). Mimoun Ouaissi, Mimoun Ouled Radi and Mohammed Chaara are a club like them.
