Audience Reviews for Breakaway

½

This film should forever be known as: "Christmas Rush", it's original title. Cheap little "Die Hard" clone, but stands out due to Dean Cain and Eric Roberts who almost elevate the material. Sadly, both deserve much better. I'm so glad Eric Roberts got out of this B-Movie hell.

Very predictable, but I thought Dean Cain did a good job. It has some good editing and photography, but other than that it is strictly routine and you?ve seen it all before. Also known as Christmas Rush.
