Storyline

"Breaking Point" is a dramatic tale of corruption and self-realization, in which one man has to overcome a deep seeded conspiracy and his own lingering past in order to gain the redemption he desires. Steven Luisi (Tom Berenger), a once prominent criminal defense attorney is attempting to come back to the profession after a struggle with drug addiction and a family tragedy. Steven stumbles into a complex, high profile murder case. Against his better judgment, he takes on the case that will eventually lead him down a path that brings him face to face with his own demons. While trying to solve the case Steven teams up with an ex-athlete turned gang member, Richard "Beanz" Allen. The two develop a fast friendship. Together they seek to reveal the truth and bring about justice in the court and on the street. Steven and Allen go head to head with the murderous Bowen (Busta Rhymes), a vicious Gang leader and Steven's old drug dealer. With Allen's help, Steven discovers that there are deep ...

Worth your time and dollar
26 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good story, solid acting and the twists are sensible rather than out of thin air which is getting common these days. Believable characters, storyline, action scenes and you're not put in a position where you have but no choice to criticize the film makers.

This is a good crime suspense drama. The legal scenarios are realistic and don't rely on an ideal legal system that doesn't exist. The chain of events are executed perfectly without getting congested by sub plots or useless scenes. While a couple of the actors are over the top and look a bit goofy in a couple scenes, the overall character performances by the cast are strong and real.

This is a good movie where the IMDb ratings simply aren't doing it justice. Worth your dollar and time.
