Storyline

"Breaking Point" is a dramatic tale of corruption and self-realization, in which one man has to overcome a deep seeded conspiracy and his own lingering past in order to gain the redemption he desires. Steven Luisi (Tom Berenger), a once prominent criminal defense attorney is attempting to come back to the profession after a struggle with drug addiction and a family tragedy. Steven stumbles into a complex, high profile murder case. Against his better judgment, he takes on the case that will eventually lead him down a path that brings him face to face with his own demons. While trying to solve the case Steven teams up with an ex-athlete turned gang member, Richard "Beanz" Allen. The two develop a fast friendship. Together they seek to reveal the truth and bring about justice in the court and on the street.

very very good film, i'll tell you why
4 September 2010 | by unemployedvirginSee all my reviews

Just watched Breaking Point, and i have to say its a great movie. It really grabs your attention from the start, making the viewer feel involved in the storyline. I love a film that makes you hang on the actor/s every word when trying to grasp the situation. Also, i was impressed with the acting of both rappers Busta rhymes and Sticky Fingaz. Busta was actually a very good villain in this picture. All the actors proved very sincere and honest.

Another plus is the way the story is interconnected between characters, which never leaves a boring dull moment. Which is why i am disappointed that this film was given such a low rating. I even made this account just now to write my review on it :)

Oh and not to forget...the composer and music soundtrack should really get a lot of the credit. If your a Scorsese buff like me who appreciates the right sound for the right visual. This is definitely worth the time to watch.

Conclusion:

No cheesy comedy included (thank you Mr. director) Musetta Vander was beautiful, Craig muMs Grant (who was Poet in the prison drama Oz) was a nice added touch and Armand Assante had a somewhat "Al Pacino" quality in his performance.

That's All Folks!!! If your into crime thrillers that involve some law enforcement mixed with psychological game play; this is definitely a treat
