Frikke finds out it's Nola, his buddy Marko's would be-flame Isa. It becomes a ream nightmare when Marko is also caught in he game, hence hospitalized comatose, but at least he proves a gifted player and enjoys being Isa's hero.

They will do an US remake ! This is a hit.
23 July 2014 | by info-61-592493See all my reviews

FANTASTIC FILM for ALL KIDS ! This is a jewel!

OK, very often you read reviews that do a film no justice.

Do not believe bad comments from journalists.

This film has it all, it has heart, fun and is paced with good jokes and suspenseful moments.

I had so much fun watching it that at some moments you really feel for our hero and the danger on his path. Even parents got hooked too in the crowd I've noticed.

At a certain moment I felt like I was watching Inception but then a kids rendition. Yes, this film is THAT good.

OK, the VFX are not Hollywood style (the picture was shot in Europe) but the story is amazingly good.

I would not be surprised if some Hollywood big shot did a remake in the US, this is a box office hit for sure because of the good and incredible original story.

Lots of twists and turns and even I was surprised with the great ending (nice one, I did not see that coming, the director knows how to build up a great suspense).

Very rarely I see a tribute to classic feel good movies like an Indiana Jones bridge or Goonies and Back to the Future that we all know from the eighties but my kids don't know.

This is a A+++ movie.

Even with subtitles because the story is very visual and fast paced.

Even for older kids and teens this is highly entertaining, everyone coming out of the theater with me was raving and enthusiastic.

Only sad part is that it is spoken in Dutch and I don't like that language but one easily forgets that once the action starts and the death race for our hero.

I'll by the DVD, my kids loved it big time !!!!
