"a Man may be rich in two things — it may be rich in money, or friends, but not all at once."

New project Daniel Alfredson was not more than one second-class half-Thriller, which is still safe from the strings to me. it seemed unnecessary, but closer to the final, a very rewarding experience, so like any other movie that can come out of under the hands of the Swedish film Director in the future, I will pass the third and then the fourth way. There are films whose almost no borders with its a great idea, there are also films whose high-quality form varies with its stupid content, and there are "the Kidnapping of Freddy Heineken", which none other than Shine, and only lazy oblective faded flowers of Amsterdam the 80-ies. And even if compared one of the authoritative units of the genre, and it "Eleven friends of Oushena", the tape Alfredson very much inferior to it. all in something, something, some things he still managed to beat very good faith.

As almost all the cast, so and some actors in particular roles were performed quite accurately. It and Jim Sturgess, and Sam Worthington, and Ryan Kwanten and even before still is unknown mark van Euven Thomas Cockerel. Saying "almost", I wanted to see that Anthony Hopkins whose the talent and charisma is loved by a very broad audience, from placed on his problem, alas, not handled. And, I think, it does not his acting skills, but rather that dry and tasteless material, which he got. However, the image of the man whose words should be a warning for the main character and/or have some secret philosophical meaning, glimpse fed up, and the stage running on the chain reference is not will speak on which ribbon has strengthened this you stronger. Of course, it the character has a word, and it's cool, but the, the role of the prisoner Hopkins not subject, even after three weeks in captivity, from they even three days without water he stays true to this is not quite a good incarnation.

The plot is not surprising, development actions are not attracts and final intriguing. The movie, as it looks because it looks, because watch costs, but not really want to. So given all said earlier, the movie can be attributed to the category of those who "beer to go", and Hopkins to kartate for a very controversial decision to take part in so distant from a box office success, Yes, and any General success of the project. The for consideration. many, though some of a very very worthwhile, such as for example, the problem of the relation of friendship and money or money love or all together. In film I saw only a fraction of sense, then how the rest did not see even this much, but again I hardly will review and advise everyone to think carefully before how to pay a half hour of your precious time and if you love to watch, frankly, boring Netherlands movies kidnapping old millionaires, then this movie is for You.

Often films based on real events that are of genuine interest and desire to see firsthand what was happening. The more interesting topic of kidnapping with ransom is not just an ordinary man but the billionaire Mogul Empire brewer Alfred Heineken. Crank this thing and fuck this benefit is quite difficult, but the five friends is virtually managed. About this tell the movie "Kidnapping Freddy Heineken" with known star cast on the advanced plans.

The film is set in the eighties of the last century. Ruined five friends are planning the Scam of the century — the kidnapping of a billionaire. Successfully turning planned, the kidnappers demand a fabulous ransom, promising to preserve the life and health of their hostages.

I had planned to see the real story, filmed artistically and efficiently, got it. The film lives up to expectations. The intrigue, the adrenaline and unpredictability, all present captures. Who could think the founder of the brewery Heineken is the past, is the story. Scary to imagine yourself in the place of stolen, what they have experienced the fear horror, probably forever imprinted on their souls and did not give sleep at night.

The cast is great. Especially Anthony Hopkins. Each film with him height this — is no exception. And let role not highly verbose, and the emotions are manifested only in the end, but what is it  a"strong" look of a tired blue eyes, the internal stress of moving they are clearly transmitted through the screen. The rest is also not disappoint: Jim Sturgess, Sam Worthington and Ryan Kwanten together to create a cohesive lineup that knows his business.

Movie gloomy and stressful, but it looks easy. Keeps the intrigue up to the last frame, when it is impossible to predict what all over whether the perpetrators punished. Situation of the time well sent, old cars, dark streets and the image of the main characters dip in the eighties, it seems that picture took in while all most likely details furnished.

It is worth noting the robbery. Not developing any intricate plans and moves the pals pulled off the abduction of the century, which even made the film. And yet, in the end, become a little sad, not matter what criminals cause of antipathy, their somehow it is a pity, although to be responsible for the offense is definitely worth it.

In the end, the film "Kidnapping Mr. Heineken" succeeded. Watch it was interesting, boring exciting. It is alive, a real story with which is not too much to see.
