Michael Chiklis & Bruce Willis in Crime Film '10 Minutes Gone' Trailer

"Every minute gets him closer to the truth." Lionsgate has debuted an official trailer for a crime thriller film titled 10 Minutes Gone, the latest by mediocre action filmmaker Brian A. Miller (he also made Backtrace with Stallone last year). 10 Minutes Gone is a crime thriller that centers on a man whose memory has been lost due to a bank heist gone wrong. Frank must piece together the missing 10 minutes from his memory in order to determine who sabotaged him, confronting his team members one-by-one before the boss takes him out. Michael Chiklis stars as Frank, with Bruce Willis, Meadow Williams, Kyle Schmid, Texas Battle, Lydia Hull, Swen Temmel, John D. Hickman, Sergio Rizzuto, Geoff Reeves, and Tyler Jon Olson. This looks as bland and forgettable as everything Brian A. Miller makes, despite the two leading actors. And the awkward "trailer voice" in this is cringe-worthy. "So much for honor among thieves,

Movie Review – Backtrace (2018)

Backtrace, 2018.

Directed by Brian A. Miller.

Starring Ryan Guzman, Matthew Modine, Sylvester Stallone, Meadow Williams, Christopher McDonald, Colin Egglesfield, Lydia Hull, Tyler Jon Olson, Sergio Rizzuto, and Swen Temmel.

Synopsis:

The lone surviving thief of a violent armored car robbery is sprung from a high security facility and administered an experimental drug.

With Sylvester Stallone giving Rocky Balboa a great send off in Creed II, and recently shooting a final fling as John Rambo, it’s easy to overlook a film like Backtrace. Stallone’s non franchise films of late have tended to be Video premières. The timing of the release of course, following in Creed II’s slipstream is no doubt intentional. Likewise we have a classic straight to video issue in marketing for this. Whilst the cover promises a Stallone and Matthew Modine starrer, the artwork is only half true.

Modine leads the film and is present throughout.
