Storyline

Thrilled crime-drama, but not "enough" worth.
22 April 2013 | by kankawin25013See all my reviews

Breaking Point (showed as Order of Redemption in my cable-TV) was the crime drama movie which could make everyone go to the deepest of darkness. The movie blasted viewers with violence, drugs, and especially, women's abusive which more than a half of women in the world could disgust this film.

The plot is good in the side of drama, how the protagonist fight with his cruel past and the "bad bad" drug. I have to credit Tom Berenger for his performance in drama scenes. Rather than showing himself the "war-hero" as in his many films, Berenger was very good in expressing Steven Luisi a very poor character. Although, in the other part, I think he was just "an old man" with nothing special.

But the things that I was very surprise is the acting of Busta Rhymes. I had to praise him for his outstanding role which could made him advances to "Hall of Shame" (Shame just means antagonists). Every time he was shown on the screen, he could make "Al Bowen" to be the "over-the-top" nasty mobster. I believe that, as long as his character exists, everyone will want to "break him into pieces".

For other casts, Sticky Fingaz could made me pity with his fate. He was pretty good with the climax scene. Armand Assante is also well-done for his arrogant dubious "Marty Berlin".

However, I think the film crew cannot come out right with the mix of violence and drama sides which is the drawbacks of Breaking Point. They boost too much violence only to sell bad guys' role. Another thing is that the last scene is too silly and needless.

As overall, this movie is OK for shaking your heart and make you wondering "how the world is so bad", but it doesn't make me pleased as the worth- watching movie.
