There is one perfect moment in "Breaking In" – that one for which one goes to see a movie like "Breaking In" – and it comes relatively early on. Gabrielle Union's Shaun has found herself under attack in the driveway where she'd been trying to order pizza for her two kids. It's not a bad idea and Union proves more than capable of nailing her Liam Neeson/Bruce Willis moment of save-your-family action stardom, but the movie has trouble sustaining interest even over its brisk 88 minutes.Shaun is put through the ringer as she attempts to break back into the house to get her kids and take control of the situation, which quickly starts to feel repetitive.Burke seems unwilling to go full villain, instead playing it straight even though every other line of dialogue is him psychoanalyzing Shaun's mom drive.
