Laughable and silly
10 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

BREAKING LOOSE's energetic opening credits shows a guy dancing in his apartment as he gets dressed for a night out. Sorta like Tom Cruise in RISKY BUSINESS but with influences from FLASHDANCE and Chippendale strippers!?!? After seeing the opening credits, I knew nothing else in the movie would top this scene and it would be downhill then on. And, as expected, the film actually went downhill after that.

Bad acting, bad story. A total waste of time. The gang of thugs is the funniest bunch since the one in "FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3".

A bad showcase of Australian commercial film-making. The movie is only available on VHS and will probably never make it to DVD.

2 stars just for the out-of-place opening credits. Arf!
