Verdict on Broken Wings

Broken Wings is a thriller that follows a police officer that finds himself in the middle of a battle to survive and be on time for the birth of his child. However, the battle to survive becomes more serious when the prisoners escape.

This is a strange thriller because it gives us the earl attack, which is harrowing to watch. However, it doesn’t dive into the bigger incident until very late in the movie. It adds even more tension to the movie unleashing pure chaos. This is based on true events, so we must understand the brutality of what happened to the people involved.

Where to Watch:  Broken Wings is available on Netflix now.

Final Thoughts Broken Wings is an emotional thriller.
