News & Interviews for The Broken
Critic Reviews for The Broken
Fleeting pleasures are undermined by an inane, directionless narrative, barely-even-one-dimensional characters and an overall sense of superficiality.
Ellis unblushingly borrows from older movies, from the famous (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) to the little known (Roger Moore chiller The Man Who Haunted Himself), but he does conjure up a spine-chilling frisson all his own when anyone passes a mirror.
While the film might not work for fans of today's faster-paced horror/thrillers, The Broken is a creepy little pot boiler that's likely to get under the skin of many horror fans.
The Brøken may offer a somewhat derivative resolution, but it gets there via an aptly fractured narrative, intertwining two radically different kinds of story type to disorienting effect.
This rather nutty thriller begins to fall apart the more it tries to explain its premise, but it maintains a terrific sense of suspense right to the end
Audience Reviews for The Broken
The Broken is a stunning metaphor for the depersonalization of a narcissistic society so mesmerized with self-image that it literally breaks through the self-absorbing mirrors -- Sheez, who am I kidding. Freakin' ridiculous movie that I wasted my life energy on so you won't have to. Can't believe I actually watched this all the way through.It got under my skin, all right -- like a flesh-eating virus.
im not to sure i understand it really i love lena headey but this wasnt i good choice for her !!
this movie i think misses the concept of a horror/thriller movie and does little to keep you watching.
this movie isnt great i dont think the storyline was particurly good it wasnt well explained and just didnt keep you entertained which is a shame because i love lena headey.
its boring with some good killing scenes but its not enough to save the movie.
unless you really REALLY like lena headey this movie just isnt worth a watch!
Another 8 Films to Die for Movie from Series #, this is a twisted mine blowing movie, that has to be seen to beleive and figure out. Worth 4 stars.
