Cannot tell you how good this film is!! The acting is top class and the story so original. . BREAKDOWN is the first good film of 2016! Thank you.
I thought Craig Fairbrass was well cast as Alfie the hitman having a breakdown and suffering flashbacks and Amanda Wass as his daughter played an excellent part. it’s good to see British films and I found myself drawn into Alfie’s dilemma.The scene in the hospital in particular , where Alfie confronts Jack showed the opposing sides of his mixed up and complex psychology brilliantly and I loved the moodiness of the film.
This debut feature by writer – director Jonnie Malalchi certainly delivers on all fronts, injecting a new thrilling dynamic and insightful attention to detail that sets it apart from other British films of this genre. Layered with exploration into the psychology of a hired killer, coupled with superb performances all round, wonderful locations, and stylistically shot, BREAKDOWN without doubt sets the precedence for future indie British crime films. BREAKDOWN has substance in abundance and a real point of difference from your usual British crime film. Be sure to see it – you certainly won’t be disappointed.
