Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is dead set on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Breaking In is proof that Gabrielle Union deserves more leading roles -- particularly in films that offer more than this rote, disposable action thriller.

Violent home invasion thriller is mostly boring clichés.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Breaking In is a thriller about a mother (Gabrielle Union) who's trying to protect her children from dangerous robbers in a high-tech home. Expect strong violence, quite a bit of it against women, including beating, punching, throwing. There are also guns and shooting, knives and stabbing/slicing, blood stains/wounds, and deaths. A man is hit by a car, children are in peril, and a teen girl is threatened with possible rape. Language includes one use of "f--k," plus several uses of "s--t" and "bitch." A teen girl is said to have a boyfriend and to be listening to "sex songs." There are a couple of other, brief sex references. An adult drinks wine, and there are very brief allusions to drug use. Union is appealing in the lead role, but unfortunately the movie is just a collection of tired clichés and empty characters.
