Predictable but Entertaining
In Los Angeles, the lawyer Sophie Anderson (Laura Vandervoort) works in an attorney office founded by her deceased father and his friend Bruce Harris (Sean Allan) that Sophie considers as a father. Sophie is working in her biggest case so far relative to an intellectual property against a powerful pharmaceutical company. Out of the blue, Bruce disappears and Sophie reports to the police department, where her former fiancé Eric Robinson (Shawn Roberts) is a detective. When she leaves the precinct, she is contacted by a stranger that explains that Bruce has been kidnapped and she must follow his orders; otherwise he would harm and kill her boss. Soon Sophie discovers that she is trapped in an evil scheme and someone powerful is manipulating her like a puppet.
"Broken Trust" is a Canadian thriller with a predictable but entertaining story. The final twist does not surprise. The lawyer Sophie Anderson is too naive and the screenplay has many flaws but this movie can be watched if the viewer does not have a great expectation. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Isolada" ("Isolated")
