It's not the most pleasant of trips that Alex (Louis Mandylor) is undertaking today, as he's visiting his estranged son Vincent (Kristos Andrews) in prison - and ultimately the visit ends with father and son having yet another fall-out. And then, while Alex is on the restroom, the prison is overtaken by its inmates, more precisely one Max Chandler (Brian Krause), once a cop with the bomb squad who changed sides under illusions of grandeur. But Chandler's not stupid, he has minutely planned the takeover and his ultimate escape, down to taking hostages as mere pawns. And this results in chief negotiator Coleman (Tom Sizemore in one of his last roles) with little room to negotiate. But Coleman has one unexpected ace up his sleeve, Alex, who's not just Vincent's father but also a former Black Ops member trained in all sorts of (guerilla) combat. Thing is, Chandler recruits soldiers for his "cause" among the inmates, and in disillusioned Vincent he has found just the right vessel to plant his insane ideas in ...

 

Now I'd be lying to you if I said this film wasn't at all reminiscent of Die Hard, premise-wise - but the similarities don't go much deeper than that as what makes Breakout so engaging (besides its well-executed action barrage that is) is the rather unusual dynamics between its lead characters that not only give the movie its fair share of twists and surprises but also provide its underlying suspense throughout. And a slick direction equally at home in tension and in action, and a strong cast really bring this film to life quite beautifully, making it a very entertaining watch.
