Payback is a Mother.
We should have bought a dog...
The latest twist on the home-invasion genre kicks off with the situation inverted. With her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security, nothing will stop their mother from rescuing them. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother on a mission when she is determined.

|Comments||The thriller crime action drama Breaking In explores themes of death, suspense, fear, desperation, survival, crime, family, cohesion and unity, betrayal, power relations, greed, negotiation and trade-offs, home invasion, courage, motherly love, and crime, which are of a strong impact. Themes are complex and mature and may confuse younger viewers, and/or prematurely expose them to adult experiences. Additionally, themes dealing with home invasion, fear and desperation, are presented with a sense of threat and menace, as embodied by the home invaders, which may disturb and upset emotionally and cognitively immature viewers and threaten their sense of security, even potentially resulting in psychological harm, particularly in the South African context where home invasions occur regularly. The sense of threat and menace is underscored by cinematic effects such a low frequency sound and dark (and red) lighting, and a suspenseful soundtrack.|
