Breathless is the high-budget, award winning movie starring Matt Damon as a foul-mouthed ex-cop turned anti-hero. The movie is based on a novel called "The Hard Way" by former FBI agent Detractress John Stickney. The movie takes place in the years after the events of Easy Rider and involves a motorcycle chase scene, the car chase scene, an airplane crash scene, and a number of bloody shootouts. This movie is the highest grossing comedy of all time and is worth the rental of any video on DVD!
The main characters in Breathless are Matt Damon and Anne Hathaway. They were originally supposed to be part of the action in another film called Cape Fear. However, this project was ultimately abandoned. Matt Damon then decided that he wanted to star in and produce a film of his own and decided to cast Anne Hathaway. Anne Hathaway was not only a big fan of the late Michael Douglas in the movie A Few Good Men, but also of Buster Cage. She agreed to star in a minor role in Breathless and that film became the start of a legendary collaboration between the two stars.
It should be noted that the bulk of the film is based around a high-speed car chase scene. At various points in the film, Matt Damon and Anne Hathaway's cars are stolen and they must navigate a narrow country road to find their way out. On the way, they encounter several shootouts, and at one point, vicious dog attacks the female lead. The plot of the film is based around the road rage incidents that occur throughout the film.
The plot of Breathless is not a major subplot and is focused on the relationship between two police officers, Detective John Hartley and Corporal Steve Austin. They are partners on the force, but when Austin is promoted to detective, he feels he cannot trust his fellow officer and is determined to seek out proof that will clear his name. Eventually, Austin runs into some resistance from other cops and ends up getting shot during a drive-by. He survives, but at the end of the film, Austin is quoted as saying that he has no regrets about turning his life into a movie, and that he can't think of anything he would have done differently.
In keeping with the theme of Breathless, the movie ends with a very graphic gun fight, and it is interesting to note that the director Mike de Leon did not get around to casting any of the major Hollywood actors for the role of Hartley. Instead, he made what I considered to be an excellent choice in actress Anne Hathaway (who has since been nominated for an Academy Award for her work in A Few Good Men) and chose to star Matt Damon. While I understand that Damon is not a leading man type role, I also thought that Anne Hathaway and Matt Damon did a terrific job of convincing the audience that both were indeed the right person for the part of Hartley.
I would have liked to have seen more original songs included in Breathless, as well as some other deleted scenes. However, what the film is primarily remembered for is the outstanding jump cuts, which really do add to the intensity and the tension of the film. It's not that the climax of Breathless isn't worth watching - it is - it's that there are way too many jump cuts to take away from what makes the climax so strong. Luckily, once all the editing is done, you are able to fast forward to the next part almost instantly, so that you don't lose anything. Overall, I would recommend Breathless to anyone who wants to see something extremely exciting and thought-provoking, while also containing some good old-fashioned fun.
