‘Breach’ (review)

As a lifelong movie lover, and as someone who has reviewed movies off and on since high school, I’ve sat through a lot of crap.

I try to stick it out til the end of any movie I see even if I’m not particularly enjoying it.

Sometimes I’ve been pleasantly surprised, often times not.

Sometimes a film is so bad I feel it just isn’t worth the pain to discover if a small miracle might occur and it redeems itself with some amazing moment or turn down the line.

Which leads me to the new Bruce Willis sci-fi flick, Breach.

It’s no secret that Willis hasn’t been doing his best work in recent years.

Sure, it was fun to see him reprising his role as David Dunn in Glass, but few would argue he gave a stellar performance in the film.

And the majority of his other appearances since, say, Looper have been half-hearted cash grabs.

So, I didn’t head into Breach expecting anything momentous from Willis or the film on the whole, but I’m open to a throwaway entertainment.

The problem with Breach hasn’t much to do with Willis, who admittedly just goes through the motions but brings his palpable star power to the proceedings.

The real problem is that Breach is a shoddy, amateurish mess.

The obnoxious overuse of lens flare would make J. J. Abrams cringe in fear.

The insanely choppy, flagrantly awful storytelling practically taunts the viewer to give a rat’s ass by the fifteen minute mark.

The performances are bland at best and the visuals actually made my eyes and head hurt.

By the thirty five minute mark, I’d given up.

I’m sorry, but life is too short for Breach.

Breach is now available On Demand and Digital HD
