“Dutch” is dreadful. It’s a shambling, rambling recycling of clichés and conventions from ’70s Blaxploitation fare mixed with stilted murder-trial melodrama and half-baked morsels of sociopolitical topicality. But, really, to describe this rancid slice of ineptitude that way is to risk making it sound a lot more interesting than it is. Written and directed by Preston A. Whitmore II (“This Christmas”), who obviously went about both tasks with all the zeal of someone paying off a debt, the movie progresses in bumpy fits and starts, with a time-tripping, flashback-within-flashback structure that does little to energize, and much to confuse, its simplistic plot.Dutch 2021 Movie Download.
The protagonist is introduced as Bernard James (JJ Batteast), a Black youngster who proves his loyalty to his white Italian boss at a pizzeria by fatally shooting a would-be robber. This greatly impresses a mob boss uncreatively christened Fat Tony (Robert Costanzo), who just happened to be hiding a stash of his ill-gotten gain in the pizzeria safe. In fact, he’s so impressed that he wastes little time asking what might seem to be obvious questions — like, oh, I don’t know, why was the kid packing heat in the first place — and almost immediately hires Bernard James for a low-level job in his outfit. The only catch: Fat Tony insists on renaming the youngster Dutch, a moniker the new employee readily accepts.Dutch 2021 Movie Download.
Cue the “20 Years Later” title card, and we find Dutch has grown up to be a charismatic New Jersey drug lord (played by Lance Gross) who manages to keep his cool during the most stressful of circumstances. We first see him as a grownup trying to sweet-talk Michelle (Natasha Marc), a beautiful defense attorney who helpfully reveals her chosen profession and the extent of her steeliness by responding thusly to his initial overtures: “I’m a criminal defense attorney, Mr. James. Very little scares me.”
She actually does appear more intrigued than frightened when Dutch says he requires her services not because of some small-potatoes drug case, but because he’s been charged with facilitating the bombing of a Newark police station that caused the deaths of 27 cops.
