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.
Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff) wakes up in the trunk of car. He doesn't know who put him there but he guesses it has something to do with his job. He's a secret service agent.
He's actually in a plastic box within a trunk. There is a red digital clock at one end counting down. He has a two-way radio and finds he can communicate with another prisoner, that's trapped in another trunk. There's a tube from the front of the cab, through which things can be dropped into his box. A card is his first clue. On one side is a picture of the White House, on the other the words, "Give us the location of roulette."
"Brake's a unique one," Stephen said. "It's almost like an experimental movie. We made it in 10 days, and this 19-20-year-old kid (Timothy Mannion) wrote the script. I thought it was a clever concept in a time when Hollywood's frankly not being that clever lately."
Make no doubt about it Stephen's acting, the idea and the director, Gabe Torres, make Brake work.
The movie was dedicated to Stephen's mom, who he lost a few years back to cancer. This is a great little thriller film you'll miss if you don't seek it out soon.
"We pretty much stay in this confined, claustrophobic space for, I think, 67 minutes," Stephen said. "For me, it's manipulation. It's a game, this film. Ultimately, there are a couple twists once I get out of the truck, which I really can't go into because I would probably ruin the movie for you."
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 laughter.
4 stars if you don't watch the last 5 minutes.
Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.
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.

Enjoyed the movie for the most part. A bit tedious but kept me interested to the end. If you can buy this movie at a low price it is worth a view.Published on May 3, 2013 by Mrkenney
