We just rented this DVD and thoroughly enjoyed the film. The cast is excellent of course, Sir Anthony Hopkins never disappoints in any role he has played and the movie will keep you on the edge of your seat, especially if you're not familiar with the Heineken kidnapping, which is a true story. It's amazing that anyone actually had the guts to attempt such a kidnapping! After watching a movie that is a true event, we often read the facts on Wikipedia or other news sites and this film stays accurate to the truth which we love . Highly recommend this film to anyone who wants to <more>
enjoy a suspenseful, true story! Outstanding job done by the director, cast, set directors, etc.!
Fact more strange than fiction Peter R. de Vries both participated in and wrote the book about this true story from 1983 and collaborated on the screenplay with William Brookfield for this non-stop rousing caper film with a very bright young cast of actors directed by Daniel Alfredson. The film is well made, well photographed, well scored with an excellent musical selection and arrangement, and very well acted by a fine cast of young actors. In 1983, a group of childhood friends - Cor van Hout Jim Sturgess , Willem Holleeder Sam Worthington_ Jan 'Cat' Boellard Ryan Kwanten , Frans <more>
'sSpikes' Meijer Mark van Weuwen , Martin 'Brakes' Erkmpps Thomas Cocquerel - pulled off the crime of the century: kidnapping one of the richest men in the world, the heir of the Heineken beer empire Anthony Hopkins . The shocking capture --by gunpoint in broad daylight on the streets of Amsterdam--resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for a kidnapped individual. It was truly the perfect crime until they got away with it. This is the inside story of the planning, execution, rousing aftermath and ultimate downfall of the kidnappers which resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for an individual. For a fast moving credible caper, this is a fine film, never letting down for a moment.
Bad reviews made me curious and tease me to watch. Especially if its about a true story book . I am glad I watched it. As my family is partly Dutch I do have some knowledge about the kidnapping. As far as I know the movie is correct and according to reality. The story is thrilling at the moments it should be. From the perspective of the kidnappers: you almost feel pity for them. The great work of Sir A. Hopkins, although his role is limited, is as we want it to be! Superb. Maybe to short, but absolutely genius. Not toforget Sam Worthington Avatar , Jim Sturgess, Ryan Kwanten, they made <more>
their positive contribution to the movie: scamp as they were, in scenes with Heineken and the driver! Nice scenes in Amsterdam and Paris. And yeah... the bottles must be brown instead of green: who cares!? Worth watching: absolute! Best film ever: no, but which one is? A kidnapping is always thrilling and excited: and so is this movie.
"There are two ways a man can be Rich in this world . . . " (by oscaralbert)
" . . . He can have a lot of money, or he can have a lot of friends. But he cannot have both," is the Gospel according to Alfred "Freddy" Heineken of the green glass beer bottle fortune, paraphrasing Jesus about a man being able to hoard more than an average amount of stuff on Earth, or gain a place in Heaven, but definitely NOT both. Though any logical person who believes in Heaven knows that Mr. Heineken has been in that Other Place since he died in 2003, many Believers are unwilling to put their Faith in either Logic or Jesus' Teachings. KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN is <more>
about five guys who think they can steal their way into the One Per Cent to figuratively rub elbows with Heineken and his ilk. What they do not realize is that any members of the One Per Cent with brains in their heads are paranoid and unhappy all the time with the threat of thugs like themselves staring them in the face, as well as the inevitability of spending Eternity in that Other Place. Taking money from the brainless One Per Centers many of who inherited their excesses is easier than saying "Bernie Madoff," but KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN proves that this is a quick route to Misery unless you're a Robin Hood capable of distributing "your" wealth to the poor before it makes you radioactive .
