Audience Reviews for The Man Who Came Back

About what you would expect from a cast where only 1 or 2 actors are well known. Looks like it was filmed by 2 film school students in their back yards, with their "Special guest teachers" as actors. A plot that reads like it has promise and falls so badly short. Not worth renting, not worth sharing the rental fee with friends.

Kamber Kuldi

Braeden is in the main character role and he was really good. A story mired in the anti-black sentiments after the Civil War. Gruesome, gritty, dramatic, scary and stirring.The storyline is worth the time; direction and plot development is a bit long and drawn out. Actual film presentation seem a bit cheap and trite.
