"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 !!
Dr. Peter Bower (Adrien Brody) laments and blames himself over the death of his daughter Evie (Emma O'Farrell). He accepts a job in Sydney doing psychological assessment. He discovers his patients all have one thing in common, something which forces him to return home and remember an event from over 20 years ago.
Adrien Brody appears to have been typed cast into roles of a gloomy individual. He plays a pathetic individual not knowing what is happening to him, someone who sees ghosts. The film never develops into a real horror in spite of a few attempts to have a scary ghost scene. It is described as a mystery/thriller with the thriller side being light and half of the mystery revealed in the film trailer. The mystery peels itself back like an onion skin, never giving us enough clues to go beyond the next level.
While I enjoyed watching the film, it is not one I would watch again.
This movie starts out a bit confusing, but that clears up after while. You will be guessing throughout most of the film if you think the main character is crazy or if things are really happening, but in the end, it is totally worth it to follow along and watch it. I was really impressed with the acting in this film and wanted to tell everyone about it when it was done. I definitely want to own this one.
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.
