Storyline

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 James Hunter

Very Well Done
22 April 2014 | by afhb52See all my reviews

I went to the premiere that was held recently at an AMC theater in Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida not knowing what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised. Breaking Point is a very well put together independent film. I give the cinematography and the lighting an A. I give the director an A for how effectively he was able to tell the story. I also really liked how cleverly the voice-over was implemented throughout the movie. It had many entertaining moments that elicited quite a few loud laughs from the entire audience. The movie looks like a big budget film, which I did not think was possible with such a low budget independent film. The vast majority of the acting was really good. The movie as a whole is very intriguing and keeps you drawn in throughout. Last but not least, I absolutely LOVED the twist at the end, and the score. I will be following these filmmakers very closely because judging from Breaking Point,I can only surmise that their best is yet to come.
