Movie Info

Bored with the slow business at his desert video store, Ray (Robert Patrick) takes off for a few days, but soon stops in his journey to pick up lovely hitchhiker, Harley (Jennifer Esposito). It takes the bashful Ray a while to discover Harley is an ex-convict returning to the desert to recover a cache of cash kept in a remote bank's safe deposit box. She insists her dead boyfriend stole it from a mobster. Gullible Ray, who is seeking a little adventure anyway, agrees to help her get the money out of the bank. What Harley doesn't tell him is that she's being chased by hit men for the very angry mobster (Colm Meaney) she stole the money from. However, in flashbacks, it's clear that little is as it seems.

Audience Reviews for Backflash

A predictable, uneven, but watchable B noir film. The script offers some ridiculous plot twits, and the overall technical composition of the film is lacking, especially in the editing department. Still, its' quirky thrills and the surprising chemistry between Jennifer Esposito and Robert Patrick make the film enjoyable enough to just outweigh its flaws. 3/5 Stars
