Audience Reviews for Breaking In

  • Mar 25, 2013
    Unusual buddy film as old hand burglar/safecracker Reynolds (thankfully lowkey for a change - avoiding his usual big Cheesy Ham persona) takes in a young guy and teaches him the ropes of nighttime illegality. Its better than you might think and also good on the difficult reality of actually breaking into a place designed to keep people out, quite unlike the plethora of Hollywood films that depict breaking and entering to be as easy as pulling a plastic card out of yer back pocket.
