Backtrace (2018) S: Stallone, Modine, Guzman, McDonald, Williams





#Backtrace - in theaters and on demand December 14, starring Sylvester Stallone, Ryan Guzman, Matthew Modine, Meadow Williams and Christopher McDonald.

After suffering a brain injury from a bank heist gone wrong, MacDonald (Matthew Modine) develops amnesia and is put into a prison psychiatric ward. Following his seventh year in evaluation, he is coerced by an inmate and a ward doctor (Ryan Guzman and Meadow Williams) to break out of prison and injected with a serum that forces him to relive the life he’s forgotten. MacDonald must now elude a local detective (Sylvester Stallone), a toughened FBI agent (Christopher McDonald) and the drug’s dangerous side effects in order to recover the stolen money all while confronting his past.

Action legend and three-time Academy Award® nominee Sylvester Stallone (including Best Actor, Rocky, 1976) costars with Ryan Guzman (TV’s Pretty Little Liars, Notorious), Meadow Williams (Reach Me, The Intruders), Christopher McDonald (Quiz Show, Terminal Velocity) and Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Stranger Things) in BACKTRACE, a riveting crime thriller that hinges on memory, fury, and betrayal. BACKTRACE will be in theaters and on demand by Lionsgate Premiere on December 14, 2018.

Geez, Matthew Modine looks older than Sly on that poster.

Bump

This opens Friday in very limited release like most Lionsgate Premiere movies and will also be available on VOD.

I'm guessing Stallone has a small supporting role in this like how Lionsgate uses Bruce Willis in his DTV flicks.

Yeah, this is an in-between role since he's wrapping up Rambo V.

I don't get it, are they portraying the regular police or the cyber police?

Rented this off Vudu a few weeks ago and finally watched it today.

I'd probably give it a C at best. More like a C- Very forgettable and disposable low budget Lionsgate action movie. Stallone has a supporting role in this and he doesn't really do much until the final act. Matthew Modine is actually the lead.

The villain was a pretty easy call.

Don't spend $6 to rent this digitally. Even if you're a huge Stallone fan, I'd skip this. If you must see it, get a cheap Redbox DVD rental.
