Terrible - not credible that a trained agent would not use his time on 911 to provide key information (like a crime scene where a man and a dog were shot which he failed to mention to a dispatcher who was trying to locate him)

It's good movie to watch

The actor did a hell of a job. I predicted the first turn half way through the movie. And the final turn wasn't entirely unexpected as well.

It's torture in a box. 1hr and 31 minutes of bad writing, horrible voice-acting and a completely far-fetched scenario---all in a box. Stephen Dorff does his best to make the most of it all, but in the end (literally the ending of the film), it only gets worse.

It tried to be "Buried" but lack of story horrid ending/not ending/ending killed it

A government agent with a gambling problem is locked in a box in the trunk of a car, terrorists want to know the location of a secret base where the president will be and are going to keep him boxed up till they get it. It's kinda a action movie in a car trunk, if that makes any sense. Stephen Dorff is good for what he has to work with, and it has a few OK moments, but the twist ending seemed dumb and clunky, which just made the whole thing leave a bad taste in my mouth, cinematicly speaking.

What in the hell. Only slightly less worse than the "it was all a dream" ending. Plot twists completely ignore previous character development. Embarrassing.

Poor rip off of Buried where most of an Agent's colleagues and even his WIFE have become terrorists against their own country and set up an elaborate hoax to get info out of him. Terrible.

Think Kiefer Sutherland in a plexiglass box locked in a trunk of a car except played by lesser known B lister Hollywood star Stephen Dorff.

Brace yourself for the ending.

Pretty unbelievable but a bigger twist then a Greggs cheese straw.

For a secret agent, the guy is really dumb and the movie suffers from stupid kindergarten logic.

I don't continuously watch movies to compare premises and/or surprises like some of these critics, so coming from an average watcher, I thought this movie was a gripping, edge of your seat thriller. Simple things bring simple pleasures. I would recommend this movie to anyone who simply loves thrillers.

Interesting thriller. Well worth a look if your a Stephen dorff fan.

With a same gimmick as "Buried" (some said that the production of "Brake" is even eariler than "Buried"), "Brake" tries to offer a more "commercial" plot. However, the story, especially the 2 plot twists, are pretty dumb.
½ August 6, 2014
Low-budget with only one setting for the majority of the movie, but it seems to work for the most part, although can feel laborious in places despite a fairly short running time. Stephen Dorff does well enough to carry the film given he has all the screen time in a slightly strange conspiracy thriller.

Great IFC flick even if it has Steven Dorff. LOL. Intense psychological thriller.
