Breaking And Entering

Breaking And Entering
The face of King's Cross is being altered by England's biggest urban renewal project, and Will Francis (Law), with partner Sandy (Freeman), has opened a high-end landscape architecture office in the area.

The building is broken into not once but twice and robbed of all its high-tech equipment; along with a laptop that contains Will’s ‘whole life’. Will, in a vigilante attempt decides to sort out the thief himself.

This film does not work. How disappointing for Minguella to come up with a dud when it is his own writing that he is directing, after the glory of the English Patient etc. An attempt at complex multicultural perspectives and zeitgeist, comes across as too simple in the way the story unfolds, with a straight forward plot and little suspense.
