I wondered why a movie with this cast didn’t have a wider release, after watching it I can see why.
“You know what your doing is completely stupid, unless you pull it off. In which case it could be completely brilliant.” When a group of friends are denied a loan they are desperate for money. They come up with a plan to kidnap the founder of the Heineken beer company (Hopkins) and ask for a large ransom in exchange. What starts off as a great idea, little by little begins to unravel. This movie is based on a true story and this is something I knew nothing about. The movie itself started off good and I was interested but the longer it went on the less interested I seemed to get. I’m not sure why, the acting was good and the interactions between the kidnappers was entertaining but this was another movie that I had a hard time staying focused on. It really seemed to stumble toward the end and this was another movie that I was thankful that it wasn’t longer. Overall, I wondered why a movie with this cast didn’t have a wider release, after watching it I can see why. I disappointingly give this a C.

‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’ doesn’t amount to much.
This film is based on such a bizarre crime, that it almost seems unreal. ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’ or ‘Kidnapping Freddy Heineken’ as it’s known in some foreign markets is the true life story of a group of friends who decide to kidnap the owner of Heineken Beer and force a ransom for millions of dollars. This crime actually happened back in the early 80s in the Netherlands.

It’s a decent enough story, however director Daniel Alfredson never brings any of the characters to life, nor does the story have any real intent other than just showing what happened, before abruptly ending after the last person was arrested. Alfredson is a great director too. His resume includes a couple of the original versions of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ series where his younger brother Thomas directed the original ‘Let The Right One In’ film as well as ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’.

So off the bat, Daniel nor his brother Thomas are exactly lightweights. But with ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’, Alfredson really only wanted to show the actual events with no depth whatsoever. The cast is solid as well with Sir Anthony Hopkins being chained and confined to a cell through most of the film as he plays Mr. Heineken. His kidnappers are played by Jim Sturgess (‘Across the Universe’), Sam Worthington (‘Avatar’), Ryan Kwanten (‘True Blood’), amongst a couple others.

This group of friends seem to be paid be some unknown person to evict and literally throw out squatters living in condemned housing. But these guys want more money and decide to kidnap the wealthiest person for a big ransom. That lucky person is Freddy Heineken of the beer company of the same name. They want to come across as professionals, which they are anything but, so they rob a bank to secure financing to build a sound proof room to make it look like an organized crime outfit executed this job.

I’m sure you already know the outcome or can read it about it in a number of books, but was it worth making a film about? While the answer may be “yes”, there needs to be some sort of depth to the characters other than that one of their girlfriend’s is pregnant. Beyond that aspect, each kidnapper might as well be the same exact person. There just isn’t much to work with, which is a shame. Sir Anthony Hopkins turns in a great performance, but is on screen for only a few minutes, and doesn’t give us time to connect or sympathize with him whatsoever. At the very end of the film, which ends abruptly, there are title cards for each character of what eventually happened with them. The two lead kidnappers went to prison for a decade, but upon being released became the leaders of the biggest and most vicious mafias in the Netherlands.

This would have made for such a better movie to see their rise to power with this kidnapping starting the entire reign of terror. Why they didn’t make that, I’ll never know. But as this film goes, ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’ doesn’t amount to much other than watching a few people kidnap a wealthy person and struggle with whether or not to release him or wait for the ransom money.
