Jimmy Scalzetti: For those of you who just fell of the broccoli boat, Chicago Place is the most exclusive shopping mall in the Chicago area.

not bad for a made for TV movie
9 December 2006 | by RLARKT199See all my reviews

I saw this film,during the Christmas season a few years back. This is a tame version of Die Hard. It takes place in Chicago,but viewers in Canada will recognize some of the Canadian outlets. The film was made,I think in Winnepeg. A lot of shooting and action takes place in this film without the blood-gore like it was in Die Hard. A good cast the actors was assembled for this film. Originally released for TV,Christmas rush,the film is available on DVD under the title,Breakaway. This a good film to put people in the Christmas mood as well entertain you. Dean Caine, plays the role of a police officer under suspension from the police force because of a cover-up,Eric Roberts,a reformed jewel thief,retired,separated from his wife,needs the money for a life saving operation for his son. Although the film does contain some violence,it should be OK for family viewing. After a long day of Christmas shopping,if this film is being aired on TV,watch it,or is available at the video store,rent it.
