Trivia

After Black (2015) had caught the eye of Hollywood, directors Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi were approached to replace Joe Carnahan as directors of Bad Boys for Life (2020). Since no definite promises were made and they were doubtful that Bad Boys For Life would ever be greenlit, they decided to make this movie, which cemented their reputation as action directors.

Adrenaline trip
24 January 2018 | by willydramaSee all my reviews

A fast-paced drug-fuelled urban story. Unlike any other film in Belgian cinema history this flick keeps the finger on the pulse aiming at a young audience. The rumor mill spun out of control as the directors were linked to big budget action movies but with this one they obviously want to follow in the footsteps of Martin Scorsese, and did a great job. Speedy cuts, voice-over story telling and raw humour will have uncle Marty in stitches, the Wolf of Wall Street is never far off. Foreign viewers will miss out on the true crime references but be aware; 75% of the events portrayed actually happened in Belgium & Holland in the 2010s. Some minor stuttering in the tempo and unnecessary twists & turns in the plot keep this from getting a straight A.
