Notebook Reviews: BREAKDOWN

4 out of 5 stars

Jonathon Mostow – 1997 

Breakdown is a nightmarish suspense thriller that builds brilliant tension throughout. Kurt Russell excels as the desperate everyman trying to find his missing wife.

Director Jonathan Mostow‘s film has shades of Duel and Deliverance as Russell battles the country hicks in an attempt to get his wife back. Mostow shows that he has a knack for this sort of thing and the action is well choreographed. 

A sleeper hit at the time of its release, Breakdown deserves to be seen.
