"Backtrack" combines the paranormal with mystery in a suspenseful plot twist. It was not written for sensationalism but for the story itself which is definitely refreshing. Time was taken to develop the plot. Adrien Brody does well in his role - I am not typically one to be nervous in a film but his acting was believable enough to make my heart pound a few times which is rare for me. He carries the film with solid supporting actors ... the only moment that dragged me out of the film was the ghost noise used "The Grudge". Happily, they did not repeat that mistake ... and the ambiance of the story was restored in the next scene. The plot was solid, well built and used a perfect amount of suspense throughout to resolution. Nicely done and I am adding this one to my library.
It has been a very, very long time since I've seen a Good Ghost story with no demons , no gore .... Adrian Brody at his Finest ... Great story and Greatly acted by Adrian and the others . Its a must see for sure !!
This movie was a big surprise! There were a lot of twists and turns that I did not see coming! Well Done! I rented this movie and did not put any info about it being a verified purchase in my review. I have no idea what you are talking about.
I watched this with my wife, who is a big Adrian Brody fan. The synopsis made me think it was going to be like The Sixth Sense. Despite similarities, it was quite different. Early on, I thought it looked predictable but was pleasantly surprised with the twists it took. Definitely worth the rental.
I thought this was a very good movie, I enjoyed watching it but I was on guard because of the negative reviews I saw on here. I do agree with one thing, that a lot was revealed in the movie trailer and movie summary that could have been held back. But I still really liked the movie and Adrien Brody did a great job of acting in it. With all that was revealed during the movie trailer, I still did not expect the ending that was revealed. And I won't spoil it for anyone who might venture to watch this movie. Give it a try for yourself.
First off, I have to say, please ignore the awful reviews of this movie on sites like Rotten Tomatoes, those people are more concerned with being critics than enjoying a film.
The devilishly handsome Adrien Brody plays his character well, there's a solid plot that doesn't hold your hand, and leaves you guessing until the very end. Sure, the premise may have been done before, but what hasn't? It plays to its strengths, and has earned its place on my movie shelf. There isn't much else I can say that won't spoil anything, other than that my heart was racing at the end, and that doesn't happen often.
To sum it up, "Memories are funny, some remember them one way, and others, another."
Very good mystery movie. Plenty of twists and turns. Adrien Brody with an Australian accent was cute. Good acting and great storyline. Never heard of this movie before, but love it. If you like mystery stories with a great twist, buy this movie.
