In 1983, a group of childhood friends pulled off the crime of the century: kidnapping one of the richest men in the world, the heir of the Heineken beer empire. 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. Based on a true story.

I really enjoyed this movie. Moves along well and has intensity without a lot of violence. The whole story unwraps cleanly.

on too long.

this movie was okay, but not great. Anthony Hopkins was underutilized. Based on a true story, which curtailed any real dramatic ending.

I'm not sure why I hadn't heard of this case but the movie proved to be informative. Just a group of guys needing to make a quick buck after their business goes bankrupt. The movie moved along and just when you think they truly pulled it all goes awry. Not the best movie you'll ever see but far from being the worst.
