A totally enjoyable romp of fun
11 December 2006 | by info-9214See all my reviews

There are many many low budget movies on the market and what I cannot stand is when it reeks of low budget qualities. Bad sound, bad music, horrible acting, bad cinematography and my goodness bad picture composition etc. Backlash does have its faults but it surely gives us a bang for our buck, for what I presume was a very low budget film (no real star names etc) . In my humble opinion, which is worth nothing really except for the fact that I watch a lot of lower budget films, is that the acting in Backlash is competent, the cinematography is beautiful, the soundtrack and composing I totally enjoyed. Backlash surely took action and gave us a beautiful location to look at as the backdrop and the director surely put us in a movie world that was not to be taken seriously and he did a damm good job of that. The film does have its faults. How can you shoot so many times at a car and not have windows being broken, why did some of the fight scenes look like they were not really hitting each other. Why was some of the editing so choppy? My god couldn't the producers and writers come up with a more creative twist of a story? But unlike most critics, I don't stand on a high horse if I don't think I can do any better and when I look at a film like this (and I guess this comes from something my mother taught me as a kid) I try to put myself in the producers shoes and think, well maybe time was a factor while shooting, maybe there was no time to get all the fight scenes the way it should be, etc etc. But I am not here to give this film any excuses for its faults. But in my humble opinion, the colors, the music, the girls, the pacing, all gave it a kind of beautiful music video feel, except that instead of 4 minutes in length, it went on for 90 minutes and I do feel that music videos are sometimes too short anyway, especially the exotic ones. Backlash and I am sure no one will argue with this point, was surely one big exotic music video that lasted 90 minutes and I surely took a liking to it. Finally I have seen my share of low budget garbage and for sure Backlash is a step way above garbage. Its the kind of film that makes me start to wonder, hmmmmmmm, I wonder if I could go out and do better than that. When that thought hits my mind on any film I view, then I know its at least worth giving it a thumbs up, if for anything but a big EFFORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
