Amsterdamned * Dick Maas (1988)

Posted in action, thriller and tagged on by .

The second Dutch classic that we watched (see “De Lift“) is also of Dick Maas. I remembered “Amsterdamned” as an action film, undoubtely because of the chasing scenes through the alleys of Amsterdam, but mostly because of the speedboat chase through the canals which still looks spectacular. “Amsterdamned” is about a killer that seems to come from the canals. A hunt develops, because a killer loose in the streets is bad for Amsterdam as a city for tourists. The acting is not all that bad, the foul language is pretty funny at times and the atmosphere is quite good too. “De Lift” is better, but “Amsterdamned” is nice too. Justly a Dutch classic.
