Sterling work in a rural Brit crime flick
14 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE BREAK is a typical British crime picture which effortlessly delivers the goods in a low budget way. It's one of those films where a bunch of characters are holed up in an isolated location and each have their own motivations for being there, although this time around it's a grubby farmhouse B&B which gives the film a kind of muddy, down to earth charm: a story of barns and mud-splattered vehicles, if you will.

Presiding over things is William Lucas, a violent escaped criminal in the great British B-movie tradition. Lucas plays a truly sinister and ruthless character who dominates the proceedings quite considerably. Writer hero Tony Britton is a bore by comparison, but there are some finely-judged supporting performances here from the likes of Robert Urquhart and Edwin Richfield as a farm worker.

Hard-working director Lance Comfort gets every penny of his budget up on the screen and there are no slow spots or glaring errors that stand out. The female characters have more importance to the storyline than usual and there are some exciting set-pieces including a chase through the countryside that reminded me of a scene in THE WALKING DEAD involving the Governor; a film to rival the big boys at times, then.
