# 96 – Breakdown
It was then that Carl realized that the idea of using his face as a parking lot wasn’t as profitable as mass emailing everyone in creation about stuffing envelopes for cash.
More than U-571, it’s this movie that makes me understand why Jonathan Mostow’s gotten the Terminator gig. Regardless of how fun Breakdown is, the crowning moment is the demise of the film’s baddie played by J.T. Walsh (we miss you, old chap). As if being pummeled by Kurt Russell isn’t enough, J.T. then gets tossed off a bridge and is given a taste of rock smash souffle as he gets shattered on the riverbed below. His spine busted, his blood leaving at a steady pace, he’s definitely next in line at the Reaper’s office but that’s just not enough for Mostow and gang. The truck the villain used to abduct Kathleen Quinlan and evade capture for an hour and half falls off the bridge and ONTO HIS BATTERED FACE! God. Damn. (N.N.)
TOMORROW: #95 (Hint: The cycle of life, my ass!)
