      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Breaking In is proof that Gabrielle Union deserves more leading roles -- particularly in films that offer more than this rote, disposable action thriller.

      EO Made me wanna break in to the fire escape, man what a bad movie Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/21/23 Full Review Shaheed B 911 what's your emergency? Yeah I'm trying to break in... You're trying to do what? Break in! This movie feels quite claustrophobic, it's taking place in one small area, so it doesn't feel like a big blockbuster movie, but then again there is other movies that is similar like Panic Room and yet we don't complain about it, but one thing about this movie, is that there are two unexpected characters that suddenly pops in so it doesn't make having just the same three people trying to survive feel stale. In the beginning I thought not much was going to happen but then it gets right to it, but the pace stays slow, it focused alot on Gabrielle Union's acting and she gives a really solid performance. The second half of the movie doesn't feel like the first half, although there are some moments that left me in surprise but one thing I wish was done differently was the one villain, they should have made him help the family instead because it looked as if it was going that way then they just threw that out of the window like butter on a stick, it would have been a great surprise that we all hoping would happen. Although the part with the husband coming home was unexpected it felt quite rushed, it would have been nice if they gave him a bigger fighting role. For the type of movie this is and just by looking at it, you can already see it's budget, I think the ending matched quite well. This movie is great watch, it isn't a over the top big blockbuster, so it isn't bad. The performances is good, Gabrielle Union gave such a great performance though. The Villains might have been bland but they are more of robbers and not serial killers so I wasn't so disappointed. The cinematography is good, nothing spectacular, the shots are all crisp and clear but nothing really cinematic. The music and score wasn't dramatic at all, but it was good not bad at all. With its cinematography and sound this movie was very watchable despite its slow pace. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/24/22 Full Review robert p Another implausable movie about a Mom and 2 kids in a house that's own by her Parents (since dead) but unfortunately this movie offers nothing new to the Kidnapping Genrea! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Don't let the strong female lead fool you. This thriller is as mediocre as they come, with the worst type of syntheic tension, drawn out scenes and a paper thin plot without any substance. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Independente do clichê, mesma temática (casa super equipada, sequestro), mesmo objetivos (dinheiro), provavelmente o mesmo desfecho, não importa, eu amo a temática, e sempre me mantém vidrada, me angustia, ainda mais quando a protagonista feminina é forte e inteligente, além de linda (lembra muito a Ludmilla), apaixonante, adoro esses filmes assim, angustia total naquele final, mesmo previsível ao extremo, amoooo.... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member it was a good thriller Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/17/21 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tara Brady Irish Times Does she get to say: "You broke into the wrong house"? You bet she does. Rated: 3/5 May 18, 2018 Full Review Steve Davis Austin Chronicle Union's Shaun Russell may not possess the superhuman powers of Wonder Woman, but she's a formidable adversary nonetheless, a fearsome warrior armed with a fierce maternal instinct serving as both a weapon and a shield. Rated: 2.5/5 May 17, 2018 Full Review Malika Kingston Little White Lies Too many unanswered questions and not enough character development. Rated: 2/5 May 13, 2018 Full Review Kip Mooney College Movie Review A contender for the worst movie of the year so far. Rated: D+ Aug 21, 2021 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com There's simply not much that can be said about a film that aims low and still manages to miss its mark. Rated: 1.5/4.0 Sep 4, 2020 Full Review Brent McKnight The Last Thing I See Gabrielle Union is so good here. She deserves much better than this movie, and so do audiences.
