Breakdown (1997)

Ending / spoiler

(1 vote)

Amy is rescued from her captors although one manages to slip away. Jeff locks the captors in the same cellar that Amy was put in, however they are freed by the escaped captor. Jeff and Amy make it to a vehicle on the property and narrowly escape being hit by Red's truck. A three-car chase ensues, however two of the drivers are killed due to their own stupidity. Red chases Jeff to a bridge where his car is narrowly pushed off by Red's semi. Amy gets her leg trapped. Jeff and Red fight in Red's semi. Jeff gains the upper hand and Red falls to his death in the ravine. Amy is freed from the car and she pushes a gear allowing the truck to fall on Red. Jeff and Amy embrace as the camera pulls back and we see a wide shot of the bridge.


Revealing mistake: During the ending sequence, just as J.T. Walsh is pushing the truck on the bridge, there is a shot looking at the front of the semi and you can see that it is not J.T. Walsh driving. The stunt man is noticeably heavier than J.T. is, and his hair is messier.

Earl: What a man needs out here is a CB radio.
Jeff Taylor: Is that right?
Earl: 'Course, if you use a CB, you gotta have a handle. I'm thinking for you, "Shit For Brains."
