Movie Reviews

  • your mileage enjoying "Brake" may vary, but even if you spot the final destination coming, it's a pleasant enough joyride
    3 of 5 by James Rocchi [MSN Movies ]
  • there are plenty of gripping moments, as well as a few silly ones - bees get involved at one point
    2 of 4 by Andrew Lapin [NPR ]
  • the structural similarities between Brake and the 2010 hit Buried are hard to ignore
    Review rate : C+ by Noel Murray [AV Club ]
  • suffice it to say, you will not be bored
    3 of 4 by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
  • regardless of whether you second-guess the climax or not, it'll thoroughly piss you off
    by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice ]
  • may become a technical object lesson in how to film in extremely tight spaces
    by Robert Koehler [Variety ]
  • it has no logic or credibility, and its paranoid view of Washington is too absurd to spur even a second thought
    3.5 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • 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 ]
  • as political cinema, Brake may be gross; as a good time at the movies, it's a total non-starter
    by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine ]
  • another you may not - neither satisfying enough to justify an hour and a half of Dorff-in-a-box
    1.5 of 4 by Sara Stewart [New York Post ]
  • a sure sign the well of ideas has reached the watery muck at the bottom: multiple movies whose protagonists spend the entire running time inside a box
    by Sam Adams [Time Out New York ]
  • a bit too much required suspension of disbelief, some plot holes, weak dialogue, and two increasingly silly twist endings ultimately sink the piece
    by Brian Tallerico [ ]
