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 Independent thriller must see sleeper of the year August 22, 2012
By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, MS

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."

1.0 out of 5 stars Sigh December 7, 2012
By nina
I give this film one star but ironically I enjoyed it...until the end. This film is far from brilliant but one thing about Stephen Dorff is he can act and he does pretty well in almost anything no matter how bad or mediocre the material. He's good enough to keep you watching almost anything which probably explains why I keep watching his terrible movies when I say I never will again.

I found this film had a good amount of suspense and thrills. Why is he in the trunk? Who put him there?

These are the two questions that repeatedly run through your mind when you watch the movie. And it's what keeps you entertained. Even if you didn't think the film was interesting, you find it hard to ditch it until you find out what the heck is happening.

Too bad you're likely to be disappointed. I hate movies that set you up for a fantastic ending only to throw a deus ex machina in the mix. If I'd paid to see this film in the theater I'd have felt completely gypped.

Now of course I didn't expect this film to be great and it wasn't but it did keep me involved and I would've given it a three star rating but I just could not in anyway forgive that ending.

It ruined what little decency the movie had.

Skip it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie January 13, 2013
By Buyer
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.

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
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
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.
