Breach (2020)

While I hated Dazed & Confused, I have come across the first truly horrible film in the DailyView. It is a Bruce Willis sci-fi vehicle that is nowhere close to his epic run in The Fifth Element.

Released late in the year of 2020, Breach is a story of the human race attempting to flee the earth because of a terrible plague. They have set up a new location dubbed New Earth (oh so creative) and they are evacuating the final group of humans to New Earth. Noah (Cody Kearsley) and his pregnant girlfriend Hayley (Kassandra Clementi), who happens to be the daughter of the admiral of this shuttle (Thomas Jane), are trying to get on board the ship. They get separated and Hayley gets on the ship. Noah stowaways on the ship, pretending to be part of the custodial crew.

As Hayley goes into cryo-sleep, Noah meets a group of crew members, including Clay (Bruce Willis), supposedly one of the former warriors that was a huge bad ass. Now he is just a grumpy and angry old man, making moonshine to pass the time.

Some kind of alien is introduced in the setting, leading to crew members that dies being turned into zombie-like creatures.

This one is terrible. It is one of those Bruce Willis films that head straight to home video. Bruce just goes through the motions as he plays every character he has ever played since the mid nineties. There is a use of a hologram of Bruce’s head that was laugh out loud funny every time it popped up.

Nothing here makes a lick of sense and it just feels like it took every sci-fi space alien trope or scene form superior movies and just tossed them in to make a movie. Very little is explained.

The special effects were atrocious. The gunfire appeared to be painted on the screen and they may have used the same shots of the crew firing their guns for every time that they needed to show it.

The ending is as bad of an ending as we have seen in a sci-fi story for a long time.

Just a terrible movie and I can see why I had never heard of it before it popped up on Amazon Prime. I miss the days when I looked forward to a Bruce Willis movie.
