Positive Role Models
Diversity within cast, but no lead roles for the female characters. Some characters are bad-tempered and violent, unhelpful toward others until forced to work together.
Violence & Scariness
Guns fired into air to disperse crowds. Punch knocks someone to the floor, although this is then laughed off between colleagues. Character tasered and manhandled by spaceship's crew. Threats to break a character's legs and kick their teeth in. Characters' bodies invaded by deadly space organisms. Character explodes off screen, blood spray across a room that covers people and walls. Character dragged off in a choke hold, handcuffed to shelving unit to be detained. Character beaten to death against a wall. Character's throat bitten open, bleeds to death. Characters shoot assailants with space-age rifles and flamethrowers. Twitching, severed body parts reassemble themselves.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Breach is a dismal sci-fi horror movie about a deadly plague, and includes frequent violence and gory deaths. The movie mostly follows the maintenance crew of an "ark" spaceship -- including former soldier Clay (Bruce Willis) -- who are tasked with eradicating a deadly parasite that turns their crew mates into zombie-like killers. Once the parasite begins to run riot infecting passengers, there are several on-screen bloody deaths with people being blown up with severed body parts displayed. There are also plenty of fight scenes and the use of guns and flamethrowers. In one particularly graphic scene, a character has their throat bitten out. Spoiler alert: The parasite eventually takes the form of a CGI alien, who causes more death and destruction. There is occasional drinking and smoking -- including an e-cigar. One character claims to be "high" after smoking an unspecified substance. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
Some movies leave audiences asking "How did this get made?" -- this movie falls more into the category of "Why did they bother?" With Willis and the rest of the cast not so much playing their parts, but rather sleepwalking through them, Breach has to be the only spaceship-set movie where the characters fighting off a deadly parasite feel about as present as the ones safely sealed in hibernation pods for the duration of their voyage.
Just in case there was any danger of experiencing any genuine suspense, the nominal lead character is named Noah (Cody Kearsley) and boards an "ark" spaceship, only for a series of underwritten plot points and underdeveloped characters to arrive along with a zombie plague. The result is what feels like an extended infomercial about how to operate a flamethrower indoors.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
