Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
File this one under nice idea that doesn’t quite execute as well as you’d want it to. The basic premise of Breaking In is the home invasion movie reversed as a desperate mother tries to break in (get it) to her house to rescue her kids from some nasty men. The problem comes with the fact the film runs out of new ideas pretty quickly and just feels very repetitive. It’s not bad it just does nothing with the central idea that we haven’t seen before. This said it passes the time as is FAR from bad… it just could have been SO much better.
