I don’t know where the sudden interest came in the case, but it is pretty interesting for its time. However, we run into the age old dilemma of discussing a true crime case. Once you get past the basic facts, the bulk of the material is left on the back of the actors. Sir Hopkins carries the weight with pride, but the main cast suffers.

The case was the largest ransom paid at that time for a living hostage. Honestly, I still don’t get the big deal about it. The Getty and Frank Sinatra Jr. kidnapping cases were far more interesting with better back stories. Why does this case demand two different movies in a short amount of time? I know of Daniel Alfredson’s work from the Dragon Tattoo movies, but I feel like this didn’t illicit the same feelings. Oh well, sometimes you do a jobber.

The Blu-Ray comes with deleted and extended scenes as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty strong. The 1080p transfer shows off the Netherlands in all of their glory. However, the DTS-HD 5.1 track doesn’t get a ton of room to impress. In the end, it’s worth a rental or a stream.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Release Date: 04/14/15[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
