I think the voice over at normal speed does not pronunce the word 'opeens' at all. The slower voice over does.

It is pronounced, but it's quite fast. :)

I have never heard anyone say they feel "so" dizzy. They feel "very" dizzy.

Very is not a correct translation, since it would be a translation of 'heel duizelig'. Meanwhile, the word 'so' in English can be used in this manner: 'that's so beautiful', 'you're so dead', or 'I'm so sick today'

The English sentence might be unusual, but it's not wrong, and it's closer to the Dutch original than if you were to replace it with very.
