Storyline

The Hague-based Europol agent Simon Fox (Morgan C. Jones) leads a troubled life after he accidentally shot and killed a child. Struggling with this trauma Simon is confronted with a secret post-war resistance organization called 'Gladio'. The organization is abused by illustrious politicians in their hunger for power, as a result of which The Netherlands is likely to degenerate into a police state. When it becomes clear that Simon's father established 'Gladio' after the war with very different intentions, Simon is determined to turn the tide..

Finally a break from Hollywood
30 December 2017 | by nickcorner1See all my reviews

When I saw this movie I felt an instant relief already after less then a minute. The cinematography is wonderful and the tempo is just perfect, not as fast as the standard dazzling Hollywood fifty changes a minute, yet certainly not as slow as some European films can be. Morgan C Jones, who plays the main character, Simon Fox, must have been a hidden gem, 'cause this guy gets you to like even his unlike-abilities. The story revolves around a new anti-privacy law ( know your current events!). The baddies are so desperate to get the voters on their side, they even take to false flag bombings to gain the publics trust. I love how the story simply unfolds in an increasingly more tense atmosphere when also the tempo picks up and the number of action scenes as well. Most Hollywood directors take to the easy way of blowing things up in slow-motion too early for the story to have developed, this one doesn't. You can't help but wanting to know what comes next and the pay-off is ...well, mysterious is the right word I guess. No spoilers here. Go see the film yourself to find out!
