The film Backfire was released in March, 2019. When a robbery goes wrong, two gunrunners find themselves the targets of a South Philly mafia family. One of the victims of the robbery is the son of a mobster, who is supposedly dead. They are enough killing scenes in the film but there are also some script flaws.
This film was rated R for violence, sexual situations, and language. Black Deniro plays Jerome one of the robbers trying to make money to support himself, his girlfriend (Jowhanah Jones) and the girlfriend’s little sister. He also wrote, produced, and directed the movie, which in some cases has had lousy results. Dave Patten, who wrote the screenplay, plays O.T., Jerome’s psychotic sidekick.
The filming was decent while the acting was barely believable. I did not care for the swearing in just about every sentence. When a film is rated R, I do expect some swearing but this was a bit too much. The story line could have been improved on. I don’t know what I was expecting with this film, but it certainly wasn’t this. I rate it 2 stars out of 5.
