Amsterdam Movie – riveting from start to finish. Ful of great acting. And, the scary part, it is based on real events. Nazi’s were working behind the scenes in America, why is that something that is rarely talked about?
The movie starts in post WW1, with the lead up to WW2 quite evident in parts of the world. It becomes a whodunit quite quickly before we flashback to the almost end of the first world war.
Now it gets interesting. We see how through their war experience Christian Bales character becomes involved with a black regiment that were not treat equally, even though they were fighting for the same country as the white soldiers. After their injuries take them to a local hospital, we meet their nurse played by MargoT Robbie, and she quickly forms a trio with Christian and John David Washington’s character. Christian is married, and Margot and John David become the romantic couple in the situation.
Eventually everyone lands back in the states, and we start to hear more about why folks were killed in the beginning of the movie, and what nefarious group was behind these deaths. The movie is intriguing, suspenseful, romantic, and funny. It also illustrates how closely the events of the last few years parallels what has happened before, and that is what scared me the most, this movie is based on some historical fact, with clear parallels to the political landscape of today.
