Little to interest in 'Not Easily Broken'

Director: Bill Duke

Cast: Julie Sawyer, Kevin Hart, Morris Chestnut, Taraji P. Henson

Cert: PG

... and not easily watched either.

This is a poorly-plotted story of how a marriage can come apart at the seams as life takes a nosedive following a car accident involving the wife and the subsequent visits to therapists and the development of other relationships on the part of the husband.

It’s the sort of car-crash story we see daily on the dysfunctional family ‘chat’ shows on TV but it doesn’t make for a watchable feature film particularly since the couple around whom the story is set are not esspecially sympathetic.

Star Rating: 2/5
