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.

Together they seek to reveal the truth and bring about justice in the court and on the street.

Much Better Then Expected
8 January 2010 | by fallguy_jackSee all my reviews

I don't know why this is rated so low. True it's closer to 7 than 8, but come on, how amazing a movie did people expect from Berenger and Busta? 7 out of 10 is a huge accomplishment for them, so I say 8.

That said, they actually may have given their best performances ever in this film. Somehow Assante was at the lower end of the performance calibre. He does alright I guess, but it's Armand Assante, decent is his minimum. Sticky Fingaz is pretty decent too.

I can't stress enough the amazing job old Tom Berenger comes up with, I assume good direction helped, but you really feel for his character, just as on the flip side, Busta Rhymes does a bang up job getting you to hate his character, I wanted to end him seconds into his appearance, and more every second thereafter.

The story and direction etc are all decent, certainly above average compared to what one would expect.

It's only fair to note that towards the end of the movie, the quality declines a bit, I guess they spent too much time making the rest of it as good as they could, and they had to rush. Whatever,

I was pleasantly surprised, I enjoyed the movie for the most part, you probably will too.
