Movie Info

Director Bob Clark would graduate from the Canadian Breaking Point to such films as Porky's and A Christmas Story, proving beyond a doubt that it is possible to overcome a bad start. Bo Svenson stars as a mild-mannered teacher--glasses and all. He witnesses a mob murder, whereupon he is put into a witness protection program by cop (Robert Culp). When mobsters show up to rub out Svenson, the authorities are helpless, so suddenly "Mr. Peepers" becomes "Rambo". ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Breaking Point

Bo Svenson is McBain, who witnesses a mob murder and testifies. Robert Culp is the cop who keeps telling him everything will be alright, and keeps being wrong. A long portion of this film involves McBain going into witness protection, until he is found out and has to take the fight to the mob boss himself. A slow paced revenge film from the 70's directed by Bob Clark. Not by any stretch a "good" movie, but had its moments and was fun to watch. Notable for setting up the hero as a Judo teacher, but he never really uses any Judo against the bad guys. McBain!!!

Breaking Point follows the story of Michael played by Bo Svenson of orignal Walking Tall fame as he is walking home with his step son he witnesses a guy being attacked and killed when he agrees to testify he finds out it was a mob killing and now the mob will stop at nothing to make sure he doesnt go to court with the police unable to help and no amount of hideing keeping his family safe he takes matters into this own hands. Really good 70's thriller in the vein of Death Wish and directed by Bob Clark who was better know for movies Black Christmas and A Christmas Story this really worth checking out.
