Movie Info

On the morning before his wedding, retired criminal Jos (Raymond Thiry) wakes up next to a murdered man with no memory of the previous night or how he and the body got there. Jos soon discovers that a group of gangsters have pinned him as the lone suspect in the theft of 20 kilos of cocaine...and he's got 24hours to get it back, or the life of his bride will be in serious danger. Now Jos has no choice but to creep back into his dangerous former world of nasty thieves and violent drug dealers-all

Some of the gags are funny, some are stale, and some are stale but still funny.

A tasting menu of hard-man predicaments that never offer more than a pale introduction to the innocent mark flailing at their center.

In terms of character and plot, not one element of the intended wild ride escapes self-consciousness or becomes the least bit involving.

A self-aware, borderline self-reflexive action-comedy from the Netherlands, Arne Toonen's Black Out is derivative in a way that undermines its wry sense of self.

Black Out will pass the time, but the people who like The Hangover III and wish it had more ultraviolence are probably the key demographic.

Black Out strains to shock and offend, but at this point, 20 years after Pulp Fiction, its conception of transgression is so familiar and toothless that it borders on quaint.

Black Out is just energetic and smartly written enough to make up for its obvious lack of originality.

February 20, 2014 Full Review Source: We Got This Covered
We Got This Covered

The film's references to other stylistic touchstones, while thematically apt, rarely carry any sort of critical inquiry, as if Toonen was more interested in homage for the sake of homage than as a means of contextualizing his worldview.

Packed with colorful characters and gnarly plot twists, Arne Toonen's movie is a stylish, bloody romp.

An Energetic, Twisted, Colorful and Wickedly Violent Ride.
