Framed for murder, Burt Berendsen, a battle-scarred WWI veteran offering pro bono medical services, and Harold Woodsman, Burt’s loyal brother-in-arms and lawyer, become embroiled in a deadly political conspiracy when they stumble upon a strange case. With the mysterious death of their former commanding officer haunting them, Burt and Harold reunite with their soulmate Valerie Voze, determined to clear their names.

Amsterdam Movie Review
One of the very prominent reason as to why the film bombed at the box office was the presence of too many characters who were not utilized to the fullest. Just like, “Too many cooks spoil the broth”, the same applies in this movie. Majority of the characters have been grossly underutilized. The narrative repeatedly strays from the center of the plot. Hence the characters have not been able to live up to their reputation.
In a nutshell, the Amsterdam Movie Review but leaves the audience wanting in most counts and makes a mess on its own.
