Michael Chiklis & Bruce Willis in Crime Film '10 Minutes Gone' Trailer

"Every minute gets him closer to the truth." Lionsgate has debuted an official trailer for a crime thriller film titled 10 Minutes Gone, the latest by mediocre action filmmaker Brian A. Miller (he also made Backtrace with Stallone last year). 10 Minutes Gone is a crime thriller that centers on a man whose memory has been lost due to a bank heist gone wrong. Frank must piece together the missing 10 minutes from his memory in order to determine who sabotaged him, confronting his team members one-by-one before the boss takes him out. Michael Chiklis stars as Frank, with Bruce Willis, Meadow Williams, Kyle Schmid, Texas Battle, Lydia Hull, Swen Temmel, John D. Hickman, Sergio Rizzuto, Geoff Reeves, and Tyler Jon Olson. This looks as bland and forgettable as everything Brian A. Miller makes, despite the two leading actors. And the awkward "trailer voice" in this is cringe-worthy. "So much for honor among thieves,

‘Backtrace’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Sylvester Stallone, Matthew Modine, Christopher McDonald, Ryan Guzman, Meadow Williams, Colin Egglesfield, Baylee Curran, Jenna Willis, Heather Johansen, Swen Temmel | Written by Mike Maples | Directed by Brian A. Miller

Directed by Brian A. Miller and written by Mike Maples, Backtrace stars one of the most famous actors of all time, Sylvester Stallone and Matthew Modine. Modine plays Macdonald, a bank robber who can’t recall when he hid millions of dollars, and a bunch of people want to know the answer to the riddle. Stallone plays Sykes, a cop who, along with Franks, an FBI agent played by Christopher McDonald, are out for information about what’s going on. The premise is simple, it doesn’t really attempt to be more than it is, and this is, without frills or excuses, an action crime movie. Hell, within the first five minutes there’s been more bullets fired than a Walking Dead finale.

DVD Review – Backtrace (2018)

Backtrace, 2018.

Directed by Brian A. Miller.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Matthew Modine, Meadow Williams, Ryan Guzman, Jenna Willis, and Christopher McDonald.

Synopsis:

Seven years after a botched bank robbery the sole surviving robber is given a drug to help him remember where the cash was buried.

It is probably fair to say that Sylvester Stallone’s recent non-franchise movies have been a bit hit-or-miss, and with Creed II doing the business at the box office during the last month then now is probably the best time to either capitalize on that success with more product or slip something out under the radar while people are distracted by a bigger and better film, depending on your perspective of course.

Backtrace is a very low budget thriller that, regardless of your perspective, can only fall into the latter category simply because it ticks all the boxes for the kind of direct-to-video movies that

Movie Review – Backtrace (2018)

Backtrace, 2018.

Directed by Brian A. Miller.

Starring Ryan Guzman, Matthew Modine, Sylvester Stallone, Meadow Williams, Christopher McDonald, Colin Egglesfield, Lydia Hull, Tyler Jon Olson, Sergio Rizzuto, and Swen Temmel.

Synopsis:

The lone surviving thief of a violent armored car robbery is sprung from a high security facility and administered an experimental drug.

With Sylvester Stallone giving Rocky Balboa a great send off in Creed II, and recently shooting a final fling as John Rambo, it’s easy to overlook a film like Backtrace. Stallone’s non franchise films of late have tended to be Video premières. The timing of the release of course, following in Creed II’s slipstream is no doubt intentional. Likewise we have a classic straight to video issue in marketing for this. Whilst the cover promises a Stallone and Matthew Modine starrer, the artwork is only half true.

Modine leads the film and is present throughout.

Film Review: ‘Backtrace’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Backtrace’
“You can’t kill me! I died seven years ago!” It’s very much to the credit of Matthew Modine that he persuasively sells this melodramatic scrap of dialogue, and every other aspect of his trickily written lead character, in “Backtrace,” a better-than-average VOD-centric thriller that likely wouldn’t work nearly so well without the veteran actor’s totally committed performance. Sylvester Stallone and Christopher McDonald are along for the ride, but in roles that keep them largely consigned to the sidelines until the inevitable climatic shootout. Throughout most of the movie’s running time, Modine is tasked with the majority of the heavy lifting, and he handles the burden admirably.

Of course, he does get a little help from co-stars Ryan Guzman, Meadow Williams and Tyler Jon Olson, cast as conspirators who smuggle Modine’s character, MacDonald, out of a prison psychiatric ward. Seven years earlier, MacDonald and two

Stallone Chases Modine in Backtrace [Trailer]

Director Brian A. Miller is to Bruce Willis what Peter Berg is to Mark Wahlberg, the difference is that unlike the Wahlberg/Berg pairing which pumps out movies that get theatrical releases and which people actually see (regardless of quality), the Miller/Willis pairing has resulted in a couple of mediocre cop dramas that few have seen.

The latest of Miller's cop movies is called Backtrace and though it doesn't star Willis, it does have another ageing action star at the helm: Sylvester Stallone.

Stallone stars as Sykes, a detective on the hunt for a bank robber suffering from amnesia, played by Matthew Modine, who has been sprung out of a maximum security facility by another group of bad guys who give Modine an experimental drug in an effort to bring back his memory of whe

Film Review: ‘Reprisal’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Reprisal’
In a previous iteration of the movie business, a derivative B movie such as “Reprisal” would have provided gainful employment for actors such as Eric Roberts, Ice-t, and Gary Busey — who, truth to tell, likely would have delivered more than a fair share of down-and-dirty cheap thrills — and premiered on the New Releases shelf at Blockbuster Video stores everywhere. That was then, this is now: Fodder of this kind can land at least a smattering of theatrical engagements on the same day it’s made available on demand. And yet, it probably, and deservedly, will have an even shorter shelf life than direct-to-video product of yesteryear, despite the marquee value of Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo in lead roles.

Indeed, with all due respect to Willis, whose admirable professionalism permits him to bring a second dimension to the flat role he’s given here, the few curiosity-seekers who bother to
