Unusual war story .......
10 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The storyline was the hook for me to seek this one out, and I was rewarded with something worth recommending. Breaking Point is not for everyone however. You need patience following this outrageous attempt by the Nazi's to gain knowledge of the pending European Allied invasion. There is very little action, and the whole thing very stage play like. A fine cat and mouse game between John Glover and Corbin Berensen is intriguing enough to overcome any story dragging. Joanna Pacula's motivation and sudden romantic interest in Berensen was never fully developed, and I found that to be the only distraction. This unusual war story is definitely worth a look. - MERK
