The Breed is a 2006 horror-thriller film directed by Nicholas Mastandrea and starring Michelle Rodriguez, Oliver Hudson, and Taryn Manning. The movie follows a group of five friends who are on a vacation on a remote island. They soon discover that the island is home to a pack of genetically modified dogs that have gone rogue and are now hunting them down one by one.

The film opens with a scene of a group of scientists performing experiments on a pack of dogs on an island in the middle of nowhere. The dogs are genetically modified and have been designed to be the ultimate killing machines. However, something goes wrong, and the dogs turn on their handlers, killing them all. Cut to years later, a group of friends including Nick (Hudson), his girlfriend Sara (Manning) and his sister Nina (Rodriguez) are on their way to a weekend getaway on the same island. They are joined by Matt (Eric Lively) and his girlfriend, who are both pilots and provide transportation to the island.

Upon arrival, the group is surprised to find that the island is deserted, and that the only people there are a pair of strange locals who warn them about the dangers of the island. The group decides to ignore the warnings and continue with their vacation, but they soon find themselves being hunted down by a pack of vicious dogs. The dogs are highly intelligent, and the more the group tries to fight back, the more they realize that they are outmatched.

The tension builds up quickly as the group tries to survive the dog attacks. The movie is full of jump scares, suspenseful moments, and gruesome deaths. The dogs are fast, clever, and relentless, and their attacks are unpredictable. The group tries to find shelter and weapons, but the dogs seem to be one step ahead of them at all times.

The movie does a good job of creating a sense of claustrophobia and isolation. The island is remote and has no cell phone reception or means of communication with the outside world. The group is completely cut off, and their only hope for survival is to fight off the dogs long enough for someone to come looking for them.

The acting in the movie is decent, with Michelle Rodriguez delivering a solid performance as the tough and resourceful Nina. Oliver Hudson is also good as Nick, the leader of the group. Taryn Manning, Eric Lively, and Hill Harper also deliver decent performances as the other members of the group. The dogs are the real stars of the movie, though, and their performances are convincing and terrifying.

Overall, The Breed is an entertaining and suspenseful horror-thriller that delivers on its promise of scares and gore. The movie may not be groundbreaking or original, but it is a well-executed example of the genre. Fans of horror movies and dog lovers alike will enjoy the tension and excitement of The Breed.

The Breed is a 2006 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.1.
