Directed by Brian A. Miller movie Backtrace was released on 14th Dec 2018 and is an action thriller movie. It covers the scenario of many factions attempting to figure out where the missing money is when a heist goes awry, and the lone witness loses his memory.
The tale attempts to link the many characters in order to create twists along the road, only for things to become unduly dependent on these attempted twists. The premise may have worked, but in the end, the characters are written so poorly that you simply cannot connect with anyone in the picture.
The Filming Locations of ‘Backtrace’
Savannah, Georgia, served as the principal production location for ‘Backtrace.’ The riverfront docks were utilized by the cast and crew of the Sylvester Stallone film. The Port of Savannah, near the mouth of the namesake river, is one of Savannah’s most renowned waterside destinations. It is one of the busiest seaports in the country and is only 18 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
‘Backtrace’ was shot in Savannah, Georgia, sometimes known as the Peach State. Despite difficult weather circumstances, principal filming for the action film appears to have taken place in February 2018 and was finished in roughly two weeks.

Performance of Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone appears in this film, although he doesn’t accomplish anything or have much screen time; he is a typical detective character who doesn’t have enough time to have any influence on the story. The remained of performances in the film have little to no influence on what we’re watching, and towards the conclusion, you’ll be disappointed.
The plot of the movie
MacDonald (Matthew Modine) experiences amnesia after sustaining a head injury during a botched bank robbery and is placed in a jail psychiatric hospital.
Following his seventh year of assessment, he is forced to break out of jail by a prisoner and a ward doctor (Ryan Guzman and Meadow Williams) and is injected with a serum that forces him to relive the life he has forgotten.
In order to reclaim the stolen money, MacDonald must now evade a local detective (Sylvester Stallone), a hardened FBI agent (Christopher McDonald), and the drug’s hazardous side effects, all while confronting his past.
Backtrace: Stream it or skip it?
Owing to the above information, we will say skip it as this movie is a bland action crime picture that doesn’t do well with storytelling, making the majority of the film feel monotonous since we can’t connect with the characters.
