Did You Know?

Director Gabe Torres wanted to do a Die Hard-style thriller that took place in a single location. He contacted his agent and she started looking at scripts. She called him and asked him if he wanted to consider a movie that took place in the trunk of a car. He asked "how much?". She responded "all of it".See more »

One of the best thriller in years..., 19 February 2012
Author: Ovidijus Burokas from Lithuania

Before watching this film I thought that it will be a copy of Buried. But when I was watching this film I was on the edge of my seat. This movie is so clever. "Brake" just can't bore you. Very good performance by Stephen Dorff. I would love to see him in another good thriller movie. For me, it's one of the best thrillers I've seen in years. I have no doubts that this movie will leave you satisfied. I have to praise Gabe Torres as well. This director is unknown. I believe that after this film Gabe Torres will be much more famous than now. Also, I was satisfied by operator. He did his job perfectly. All in all, the movie is very good and worth watching.
