DVD review: Broken (2005)
A gun blast, a flash of light, and a young woman awakens to the comfort of her own bed. Bonnie Clayton (Samantha Jane Polay) has it all, a great relationship, a challenging career, and the burden of a dream that grows more vivid and disturbing with each passing night. But when Bonnie is abducted by a sadistic stranger and his colorful entourage, she discovers that the key to her survival lies within the familiar realms of her recurring dream. Break is written by Jorge F. Rodriguez and Alex Ferrari who also is the director. The camerawork and editing pretty good, the acting is okay and the soundtrack is good. That the filmmakers are inspired by the movie Matrix comes as no surprise. There are some gore, mostly in the form of squibs. There is some use of computers to create muzzle flashes for airsoft weapons that they use. No T & A in this.
This review is based on region 1 DVD released by The Enigma Factory, Inc.

Rating: 2 out of 7. Disappointing short film, uninteresting asit feels like I´ve seen it before and it´s even a bit boring despite a running time of just 19 minutes but it has pretty good production values.
