Breaking is thrilling and well acted, but the pay off wasn’t quite effective!!!

What I Like:

-What really made this film good was the acting of John Boyega as the titular character of a desperate man who holds a bank hostage with a bomb to get what he needs, you can sense how troubled and desperate he is, and doing what it takes to get what is rightfully right for him, the rest of the cast was stellar, especially Michael K. Williams as the Negotiator
-The whole film was thrilling, and gives you that sense of wonder of what is going to happen next

The So So:

-Here and there it did slow down for some moments, but some of the slow moments were great for character development, while other slow moments didn’t pertain to the big picture of the story.

What I Didn’t Like:

-Without spoiling it, I found the conclusion of this film very unsatisfying, there was no merit, it wasn’t effective, very anticlimactic, it just ended, and I wanted some kind of good pay off, I felt I was robbed in the end


It was a very thrilling movie, with some good characterization, especially for John Boyega’s character. I liked how things went down, but the abrupt ending just didn’t really do it for me. I felt like it needed more substance to be even more impactful than how it really ended. Regardless, it is a good watch for anybody that is interested!!!
