Shawn Dickerson, an early thirties, rough around the edges street guy is accused of killing BRENDA SAWYER, a wealthy and prominent older lady, known for her compassion, and benevolence towards kids from the inner-cities. Shawn is hunted by Brenda's grieving husband HARRY, the police, and a very ambitious and overzealous Assistant D.A. name BALLARD, who is willing to do whatever she has to do to make District Attorney, even if it means bending the rules. Harry, already distraught due to the death of his daughter Susan, at the hands of a hit and run driver, decides to take the law into his own hands, to mete out Justice to Shawn. While Shawn is on the run, Assistant D.A Ballard devises a plan to procure the case once Shawn is apprehended, believing that a guilty verdict against Shawn will increase her chances of becoming the D.A. Once Shawn is apprehended, the fireworks begin. Written by

"The Breaking Point" is the kind of film you watch on a Friday night when you want some nice entertainment. You get some nice drama, some nice laughs, and entertainment. This film, directed by James Hunter, is a reminder that independent artists can still create quality. Now, don't get me wrong, there are still mistakes and everything isn't perfect. There were editing mistakes that made the movie look more amateur than it really was. The movie also gets inconsistent with it's acting and the writing is uneven, but taking into account what the film had to work with, you appreciate it's look of professionalism. What stood out for me was the clear cinematography, outlined with solid lighting. As for the components you care for the most, the story was finely crafted and pretty darn clever, and the acting (for the most part) was believable. Like I said, this film doesn't have anything exceptional about, but it's a nice piece of entertainment. You can see and appreciate the effort put it, and despite it's (at times) evident flaws, you're still drawn in.
