Breakdown
27 July 2008 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I saw this at the Berlin Film Festival (Berlinale) and although the director came out after the movie and tried to explain why he made the third act, the way he made it, I still wasn't really completely behind him or his concept. It is of course an independent production (even if a Mr. Banderas co-produced it or whatever) and the director was more than likable. But I, and many other as I can see by the votes here on IMDb, couldn't get over that final act and it's strange turn of events.

While the movie had many things going for it, up until that point (decent acting, a scenario where many things were possible and or plausible, especially because it is sci-fi after all), it seems to even hop genres at the end. What has worked for other directors before doesn't apply here. Unfortunately, because I really would have loved the movie more if it stayed, in it's lane (again the ending will appall many viewers, beware!)
