User Reviews

 
Not so bad - enjoyable action film based on real events
2 November 2019 | by von_stauffenbergSee all my reviews

Reading the reviews I was expecting much worse... Solid & realistic action film describing a real event. Probably less explosions and pyrotechnics than in an American film of this genre but it did not take away anything in terms of suspense and drama. The seventies feel and a certain level of amateurism of policing is quite well depicted.
