Story


Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff) is about to have a very bad day. He wakes up in total darkness, confused and disoriented. The only light comes from the blood-red digital numbers ticking away above his head. Jeremy quickly realizes he's in trouble. It's hard to breath. He can barely move. And no one will answer his cries for help. Then, he hears the sound of an engine and it all becomes clear...he's trapped in the trunk of a moving car. As his captors reveal themselves and their motives, Jeremy realizes he won't be set free until he gives up the whereabouts of "Roulette," a secret location where the U.S. President is taken in the event of a terrorist attack.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..instead of dazzling, the twisty double ending sets the slight but ultimately critical emotional detachment of the preceding ninety minutes into greater relief..”
by Michelle Orange [Movieline]
“..regardless of whether you second-guess the climax or not, it'll thoroughly piss you off..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
“..the structural similarities between Brake and the 2010 hit Buried are hard to ignore..”
by Noel Murray [AV Club]
