A decent Belgian crime/thriller series with a massive twist.
1 October 2019 | by lizardjimsSee all my reviews

I've enjoyed much Belgian crime TV series in the past, such as "The Break", "Salamander", "De Dag" and others, so I was eager to watch "13 Commandments" (original title: "13 Geboden") even though it is a rather lengthy show for my taste (13 episodes in total). The story is a classic serial-killer police procedural with a killer nicknamed "Moses" by the press who tortures his victims without killing them but leaving them traumatised and scarred for life. The plot is moving forward in a fast tempo and there is a colossal twist in episode 10 that leaves the viewer aghast. After that, you see the story through a totally different perspective. While it sounds, and on a certain level truly is, another formulaic crime show, "13 Commandments" has some merits that make it stand out in a positive way. The characters are nicely outlined, especially the two protagonists, Peter and Vicky, each having their own problems and troubled past. Furthermore, I found Dirk van Dijck's performance as Peter to be outstanding and after finishing watching this one, I instantly searched his filmography in order to see more of his work. The production values of the show are at a high level, as always in the Belgian cinema and television productions and overall I can safely say that "13 Commandments" is a binge-worthy series and many of you will watch it in one or two sittings.
