Fantastic effort from the Mason/Brand team
15 August 2006 | by (Orange County, Calif) – See all my reviews

I'd enjoyed Mason's previous efforts, The 13th Sign and Dust, and was eager to see Broken. I wasn't prepared (in a literal sense) for what I was about to see. Broken isn't just a step forward for Adam, its a quantum leap. The only thing I didn't care much for was the music over the ending credits! Otherwise everything else was a joy and a horror (in a metaphorical sense) to behold.

First the joy. The film is stunning to watch. Its seems every camera angle has been carefully calculated for maximum impact. The colors are simply gorgeous. You can tell this project is someones baby lavished with love and attention. I know there are several different cuts of Adams previous film Dust in existence, indicating perhaps a change of thought at various stages after shooting was wrapped. With Broken, they seem to have nailed it. Everything is as needs be. We understand very quickly the predicament the characters are in. Everything is finally crafted, building to a climax with a twist at the end... And of course, a superb performance from the female lead Nadja Brand (also in The 13th Sign and Dust) who's work in this film is exemplary, providing us with heart wrenching insights into the human condition.

As for the horror, I think the true underlying horror is the breaking of another person by enslavement, although in this instance, the two, mental and physical cruelty are hand in hand and interwoven throughout the film, right up to the last frame of the film. For a low budget film, the makeup/effects aren't just good, they're fantastic! If this film doesn't establish Adam Mason (and crew), then there's no justice in the world. I'm already looking forward to his next film, The Devil's Chair.
