Storyline

Ray Bennett, a lonely video-store owner in the middle of nowhere decides to take some days off his work to think about his future. On the road, he comes across Harley, a very attractive, mysterious woman and ex-prisoner. Having been lonely for some time, he seems charmed and willing to spend some time with her, while she needs a man to help her finish a pretty well-paying job, left in the middle when she was busted for drug money distribution. Intentions differ, plans change and "trust" is a dangerous word as they make their way into the local cartel boss's business, with $2 million and maybe a new life as a compass. Written by Aristoteles "IronBruce" Kostoulas

Cheap B-flick
24 July 2002 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Take a simple-minded story and leave out parts so as to mystify the audience and then plug them in later so we can relish in the revelation. Rent a handful of 2nd tier talent. Drag the shots out because you can't afford to be busy...busy costs money. Pump up the atmospherics because they're cheap. Avoid expensive action like blazing fire fights and blow up a cardboard cabin instead. And, voila! You have "Backflash", a cheap B-movie set in the BFAZ desert which tells of a video store owner, a babe, and a bunch of mob heavies all trying to get their mits on some ill-gotten dinero. This no brainer explains everything with flashbacks so it would make an ideal soporific for the weary couch potato. (D+)
