Really Lame
15 April 2000 | by (South Carolina) – See all my reviews

"Blowback" is like every other bad cop movie ever made. First you have a homicide detective searching for the truth behind some bizarre murders. Second the detective is kicked off the case by the Chief of Police. Third the cop breaks department rules and tries to solve the case on his own anyway. Fourth someone the cop loves becomes the final target for the psychotic killer. The only difference in this film is the type of psycho. In this case it is some religious lunatic. To truly experience "Blowback" you take all the above mentioned elements remove any trace of good acting and take away anything unsuspected and you have this movie.

Mario Van Peebles hasn't done anything halfway decent since "Posse" and it seems like such a waste. There is no reason for anyone to sit through this movie. If you are still not satisfied and want to see the film anyway make sure the kids are out of the room because there are two separate parts of the film which contain half naked women tied to crosses and being threatened with nail guns.
