Suspenseful, But a little boring at times.
17 August 2005 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"Breaking Point" could have been better. Corbin Bernsen plays Officer Pike. He is drugged and tortured by Nazis. The Nazis think he has information on plans for another invasion. Pike can't remember anything about this. He is also being helped by Dr. Gerber (John Glover)and Diana (Joanna Pacula) to recover from his memory loss. But Pike begins to think that Dr. Gerber has a different intention for him.

Corbin Bernsen and John Glover are very good in their roles. The movie begins to lose energy by the third act. There's no need for any gunfights. The pacing is also a problem, because some scenes go on forever.

In the end: If you are looking for a WWII drama, this is a decent choice.
