The Reviews for Breakdown (1997) 720p

Excellent, unsettling and suspenseful B movie thrillerReviewed byantonjsw1Vote: 10/10

This is the film that showcases director Jonathan Mostow's talent. Unfortunately, since this film his work has never come as close to this film in terms of overall quality.

The plot is fairly straightforward but is well executed and focuses on the Jeff Taylor character, brilliantly played as an everyman by Kurt Russell. He conveys there characters descent into desperation and terror very well – to a point where forces that start manipulating his character cause something in him to snap and his character finds an untapped source of courage – being driven by an unstoppable urge to find a loved one. Russell charts this character journey well, yet the fear never leaves his character – he just evolves to handle it within the extraordinary situation he finds himself in. Other performances are solid, particularly the late J.T Walsh as the main protagonist and Rex Linn as an empathic sheriff.

Director Jonathon Mostow has an effective and sophisticated take on the filmmaking. He develops the story gradually, allow the suspense and pace to continually build up throughout the film. Technical credits are solid, including editing and Douglas Milsome's excellent photography. The growing tension and dread builds up brilliantly throughout the film, leading to an excellent action oriented climax and a coda that is reminiscent of early 70's US movie-making.

Overall simple but a brilliantly executed movie.

Real gripping thriller, Russell though tends to be a bit of a wimp tostart with then starts getting angry, the storyline is good but some ofthe scenarios are a little disbelieving and you will tend to keepsaying things like "How come he has managed to escape and chase them soeasily?" "How come she did that?" etc

The scenery is real nice, fans of road movies will be pleased too withthe New Mexico landscapes and long quiet roads.

Worth a watch! We go into real redneck territory here also. I wouldlike to criticise some of the acting though, the delivery of some ofthe lines tends to be a tad wooden in places (not so much from Russell)but I don't suppose the all non-star cast could expect Oscars.

Absolute favouriteReviewed byLeofwine_dracaVote: 10/10

BREAKDOWN is one of those lower-budgeted, under-the-radar type movies which pop up on late night television to hook and fascinate you. In essence, it's a B-movie with a better cast than usual; one of those films I saw and liked years and years ago and which has stayed with me ever since. I recently revisited the film on DVD and was surprised to discover that it's actually an excellent little action/mystery/thriller and one of my all-time favourites.

The ever under-appreciated Kurt Russell stars as that classic archetype, the ordinary guy, who finds himself out of his depth when his wife goes missing after hitching a ride with a seemingly kindly trucker. I won't spoil what happens after that, only to saw that the screenplay is absolutely loaded with suspense. Truly, you could hear a pin drop as I sat watching this film, riveted to the screen; the bank scene is the real highlight, but the later antics pay off nicely too. Things culminate with a nicely directed action scene featuring some great car stunts. I'd put this film up with the best of Hitchcock, and that's no joke; it's the type of film I could start watching again straight after finishing, I enjoy it that much.

Much of the film's success comes from the casting of Russell, whose acting adds immeasurably to the experience. He's one of those instantly identifiable and likable actors who you end up rooting for from the outset, even in more conflicted roles like the one he played in corrupt cop yarn DARK BLUE. If only Tarantino's DEATH PROOF had been more like this movie! Instead, the directorial duties are handled by Jonathan Mostow, his debut picture, and he does a wonderful job. I equally enjoyed his follow-up films, U-571 and even TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES, although I'll admit that SURROGATES was a little lacking in the substance stakes. J. T. Walsh also does a nice job in a supporting role, and it's fun to see M. C. Gainey given something larger than a cameo for a change.
