Matthew Modine is outstanding as an amnesia-stricken bank robber in Brian A. Miller's VOD-centric thriller.

It is no exaggeration to say that Backtrace was the cinematic equivalent of a headache. It's too ridiculous and underwritten to be a full-fledged crime thriller and too self-serious to be an enjoyable B-movie.

Jan 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Though the action scenes occasionally bring the film to life, there's an overwhelming lack of dramatic tension across most of the running time.

Jan 10, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

The biggest problem with this absurdly incoherent crime thriller is that it's played with a straight face.

Dec 14, 2018 | Full Review…

If you think the new straight to video Stallone movie is just a generic crime movie that cast big names to put them on the cover, you'd be right.

Not really a Stallone movie - or much of anything.
