Kidnapping Mr Heineken

Action, Crime, Drama

The inside story of the planning, execution, rousing aftermath and ultimate downfall of the kidnappers of beer tycoon Alfred "Freddy" Heineken, which resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for an individual.

The critical consensus

A beer-fuelled thriller that’s desperately short on thrills.

Anthony Hopkins adds a nice dose of screen presence as the titular Mr Heineken, but it’s hard not to feel that this victim deserved to be at the centre of a more interesting crime.

Take beer goggles to this unappealing reconstruction of the 1983 kidnapping of the Dutch beer magnate, played by Anthony Hopkins.

This is a workmanlike, underwhelming thriller.
