Editorial Reviews

Secret Service agent Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff, Somewhere, Public Enemies) wakes up trapped in a plastic box in the trunk of a car, left with nothing but a CB radio and an ominous digital timer. Each time the clock hits zero, Jeremy faces a new round of physical and psychological torture from his captors - terrorists who want to know where the presidential emergency bunker is and will stop at nothing to find out. Nearly helpless to the chaos of the terror plot unfolding outside the car, Jeremy must rely on his resolve and limited resources to survive. And before the clock runs out for the last time, he must decide exactly how much he's willing to sacrifice in order to save his country. A rapidly-twisting, claustrophobic thriller, Brake will leave you gasping until the final frame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Props for Directing, Storyline and Performance February 27, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Props to Timothy Mannion for a story well crafted that I never would have expected!

Props to director Gabe Torres as it had to be rather difficult to direct a guy in a car trunk and he did a great job!

Props to the performance that Stephen Dorff did in this movie! He had such little room to work but pulled off a truly good performance! I believe Stephen Dorff was an executive producer for this film as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHERE IS ROULETTE?, May 13, 2013
Format:DVD
Jeremy (Stephen Dorff) is a secret service agent taken captive. He is in a plexiglass box in the trunk of a car for about the entire film. Normally I hate these one man movies of a person being trapped, but this one had enough hope, like a carrot on a stick, to hold my interest. With his wife being threaten as well as other people, Jeremy is being pressured to divulge information about secret locations of the POTUS.

Stephen Dorff did a convincing job in this one man thriller and then it happened. The ending. The ending made an improbable but interesting film into a laugher.

4 stars if you don't watch the last 5 minutes.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

Format:Blu-ray
"Brake" is another in a recent string of claustrophobic thrillers set entirely in one small confined space. Instead of the "buried alive" aspect, though, the hero of this piece is locked into a transparent box and held in the trunk of a vehicle. And as he tries to figure out just what is going on, it seems that the outside world is alive with terror plots and conspiracies. Just why is this guy locked up? Who is doing it? And what do they need from him? These are the questions that Stephen Dorff wrestles with as he remains the sole character on screen for the entire length of the movie. When the audience is trapped with the film's protagonist in a stagnant space, there is a tendency (if not done correctly) for the picture to get monotonous. "Brake" does a serviceable job of keeping things interesting, but mostly because it adds dangers that are patently ridiculous.

Slight Spoilers:
I mean really, who would believe that ANYONE would be carrying around a load of bees?
And the box has the capacity to fill with liquid in the trunk of a car? Where's it coming from?
End of Slight Spoilers

Really, though, I didn't expect too much from "Brake." I just wanted to be entertained. The movie starts with an intriguing premise so I overlooked many of the wild plot developments because I was genuinely interested to see where this journey would take me. While not exactly riveting throughout, it made for a perfectly passable popcorn movie. Dorff seems to be taking on more and more of these direct-to-DVD type roles (although this had a small release, it feels direct-to-DVD) and I'm not sure why. He's actually quite good here as he becomes increasingly unhinged. And he is the absolute center of the piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRAKE March 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A truly exciting thriller! And ORIGINAL! So tired of seeing the same thriller plot over and over. Unique concept with great performances, direction, and editing. Will see again and buy when the DVD is avilable. Five stars, 'both thumbs up! WAY UP'

2.0 out of 5 stars Ending destroys the movie December 13, 2012
Format:DVD
Stephen Dorff is stuck inside the trunk of a car. He is a Secret Service agent with information about where the President goes in case of an emergency. After guarding this information throughout the entire film (under some very difficult circumstances), something unbelievable happens and ruins the movie. For a much better film about a person stuck in a box/confined space, recommend checking out Buried with Ryan Reynolds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worst ending ever, for an otherwise decent thriller September 26, 2012
Format:DVD
Yes, I'm putting a spoiler alert here at the first of my review so you can turn the movie off the INSTANT that Jeremy puts the ring back on Molly's finger! What you have at that point is a great suspense thriller with a twist you'll never suspect. If you don't turn it off at that point, you'll have to watch the WORST, non-plausible bit of movie making ever contrived in the attempt to end a movie. The worst.

4.0 out of 5 stars SURPRISINGLY GOOD June 15, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
O.K.--This has the feel of a low budget direct-to-dvd flick. But surprise! It's a helluva ride (pun intended) with an ending that caught me off balance. You could do much worse. Dorff holds the screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie January 13, 2013
By Buyer
Format:Blu-ray
I caught this movie on one of the pay channels one early Sunday morning. Started watching (lucky for me it had just started) and immediately became enthralled. I know it's kind of a formula movie, but for those of us who either use TV and movies for entertainment and/or stress relief or stare straight through the TV while you think of a thousand other things you should be doing, this movie was great. On that Sunday, I was the former. My 18 yr old son NEVER watches TV and only occasionally goes to see a movie. He is a computer modeler and picks apart every scene of a movie, so I usually don't ask him to watch movies with my because he's such a Debbie Downer.

However, I knew 20 minutes in that he would love Brake. I Tivo'd the next time it came on and we watched together. He loved it. I purchased a new blu-ray player for his computer for Christmas and bought the Brake blu-ray to go along with it. He's watched it a couple of times. It's a good movie--check it out.
