We’ve seen many different instances of home invasion stories. Perhaps most notably, David Fincher tackled the premise with his film Panic Room, which starred Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart. The film was something of a thriller. Another one came in the form of The Strangers, which took more of a horror approach.
However, with this latest film, Breaking In, it takes that premise and turns it on its head. Yes, a mom and her family fall victim to home invaders, but rather than have them all stand by as victims, the lead in this film is locked outside, with her kids trapped inside. She must now find a way to break into her own fortress of a home before it’s too late.
Below is the official synopsis for Breaking In:
“Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In.”
I have to see, upon hearing the title, as well as the tagline “Payback is a Mother,” I wasn’t too enthused about the product we were getting. However, after seeing the trailer, seeing the setup that the house was made to be of a fortress, and finally, then seeing the lead having to break in herself, it was not difficult not to get drawn in by the potential of what they had here.
