The biggest problem with Breaking In is that you can see a fairly clear path to a much better movie. What could have been a fun upending of expectations turned into a rote checklist of those very same expectations.
In more adroit hands, such a set-up could yield tense cat-and-mouse thrills, but the twists in Breaking In are all too predictable and so are the characters. Still, Union gives it her best shot as the resourceful heroine.
