“Race” to survive
`Leak’ starts with one of the best opening scenes I have seen in last few years. At first, it seems it’s just another way to spend some movie tape and to add some length. But then we realize what’s goin’ on. And then becomes shocking. So is the whole movie: starts like some easy pop song but ends in a hardcore rhythm.
The story is about corruption in police. Two main characters, one policeman and one criminal are different, of course, but they have one thing in common: they had been good friends one time ago. So, they meet again, and the race begins. The race to survive. Who’ll be the lucky one? There is a thin line that’s just waiting to be crossed
If you like American movies too much, you may be disappointed. Well, yes, there is lot of action goin’ round but there are no super heroes in this movie, no dirty harrys, no almighty gunmen, no immortal avengers who enjoy their revenge more than everything. This film is not made for fun. This is a European movie, strong and realistic.
I saw this movie in an old fortress, it was 1.30 a. m. when the movie started and after one hour I wanted to go home because everything started to look too familiar. Fortunately, I didn’t leave.
Steeply downhill ride from awesome opening sequence
I was a bit surprised to see almost exclusively positive reviews of this flic here. “Lek” has its moments, but the only scene I found truly entertaining was the brilliant opening sequence, which tellingly did not feature the lead character.
Many Dutch movies suffer from a fixed pool of actors, who either act like they are in a play on a stage, or are picked from TV soaps, with accordingly lacking acting skills and altogether boring personalities and screen presence. The latter certainly applies to Cas Jansen, who plays the lead as an incredibly unconvincing Amsterdam cop. Both he and his girlfriend were mostly cringey to watch. Not for a moment could I see past the middle class white actor kids that they are.
Some of the criminals were fun, and some action sequences were mildly entertaining, but when the main characters are boring dweeps unconvincingly playing parts that so obviously are lightyears away from their own reality, you can forget about suspension of disbelief.
To end of a positive nite: for a vastly superior Dutch crime movie check out “De dominee” (2004).
