[The] script is so uneven that the result is like watching four different, equally bad, movies.

Broken is a pretentiously time-fragmented, tedious slog.

'Why?' you may wonder as the end credits roll on director Alan White's Broken.

Heather Graham's would-be singer-songwriter in Broken is a walking cliché in a film overstuffed with them.

Tiresome and turgid, Broken has nothing to say and says it slowly. Even the sex scenes are a bore.

Ideas aren't enough to overcome a badly organized structure and often stilted acting.

Formulaic soap opera has the makings of camp but the heart of an after-school special.

...a fairly tedious and thoroughly familiar portrait of drug abuse.

Broken has little of any great substance to add to the old truism that L.A. eats its young (especially those who just got off the bus from Ohio) and then picks its teeth with their hopes and dreams.

Despite good work by the two leads to put it back together again, Broken lives up to its title.

Broken goes a bit heavy on the symbolism (naming the leads Hope and Will, for starters) and tries to stir up sympathy for characters who may not deserve it, but as cautionary tales go, it's worth a look.

Says nothing new in a familiar way.

Alan White's follow-up to Risk is still pretty entertaining, if not in the way he intended.

A stagy piece that allows the audience to wonder how much is going on in the central character's drug-induced hallucinations and how much is real--No matter, though, since nothing is particularly dramatic or original.

Audience Reviews for Broken

Interesting movie - I'm not sure why, but from the cover I was expecting a b-grade horror, which this definitely isn't. Actually it was much better than I expected. I was a bit confused with it at first as it keeps going back in time, but it does make sense at the end and Heather Graham is great in this.

Great movie! Interesting story plot. Heather Graham stars, and portrays an intriguing character. Good music. A must-see!
