Jones Review: "The Breaking Point"
"The Breaking Point" is the kind of film you watch on a Friday night when you want some nice entertainment. You get some nice drama, some nice laughs, and entertainment. This film, directed by James Hunter, is a reminder that independent artists can still create quality. Now, don't get me wrong, there are still mistakes and everything isn't perfect. There were editing mistakes that made the movie look more amateur than it really was. The movie also gets inconsistent with it's acting and the writing is uneven, but taking into account what the film had to work with, you appreciate it's look of professionalism. What stood out for me was the clear cinematography, outlined with solid lighting. As for the components you care for the most, the story was finely crafted and pretty darn clever, and the acting (for the most part) was believable. Like I said, this film doesn't have anything exceptional about, but it's a nice piece of entertainment. You can see and appreciate the effort put it, and despite it's (at times) evident flaws, you're still drawn in.
