Breaking News: Movie Review

By: Kam Williams

Breaking News: Movie Review

After a gang of bank robbers leaves the street littered with the corpses of cops courtesy of a gruesome shootout aired live on TV, the police force is left embarrassed with a lot of egg on its face. So, to restore the department’s credibility, the chief deploys thousands of officers to find the crooks and to bring them to justice.

 

Eventually the five bandits are discovered holed up in a hideout, and television news crews are again on the scene to broadcasts the relentlessly grisly blow-by-blow. So unfolds Breaking News, a gruesome adventure reminiscent of 15 Minutes, a crime saga starred Robert De Niro and Edward Burns. But where the bad guys were wielding the camera in that flick, Breaking News focuses on the action from the point of view of the bad guys.

 

Like a Bruce Lee chopsocky, this movie doesn’t have much more to offer beyond incessant vivisection, which ought to satiate the bloodthirst of fans of gratuitous gore.

 

A brainless but harmless display of senseless slaughter.
