Summary

Belgian director Filip van Neyghem's Dutch-language comedy Blinker en de Blixvaten represents the third installment in a lengthy, multi-film saga about the foibles of the Van Steen clan, and the first since 2000's Blinker en het Bagbag-juweel. In this outing, the family relocates to the coastal region of Oostende, Flanders (Belgium), after Mr. Van Steen accepts a job as a lifeguard there. The son, Blinker Van Steen, provides some much-needed assistance to his dad; meanwhile, everyone learns that the diabolical Blix Industries has caused massive, widespread pollution just off the shore, but no one quite knows how to contend with this discovery.

Movie Reviews

A nice try at movie making, not to be taken seriously. Zany, not-so-funny, lame jokes, and far too much screen time for dad, who tries, but never succeeds to be funny. Music is out of place all the time, action scenes fail, and plot holes all over the place. The kids are cute, but please stop making sequels.
