relatively good movie
2 February 2012 | by tommerSee all my reviews

this is a relatively good movie, since it was made in Holland, with a limited selection of actors to choose from, a small budget and a few days of shooting. The movie contains a satisfying amount of jokes, action, babes, fairly original characters and thrillers. Too bad some of the scenes are almost exactly the same as Hollywood movies: the 'godfather' of the crime gang is in a wheelchair and uses oxygen. This reeks of Things to do in Denver when you're dead. Also, the scene in which the babes are chatting in their car, just before doing a job on Willy, is similar to the conversations John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson have in Pulp Fiction.
