Rating: *** out of ****
A word of warning before the review: I highly recommend Retroactive and
suggest you go out of your way to see it in widescreen because the
numerous action scenes and breathtaking desert cinematography are
cramped and a pain to watch in pan-and-scan.
Relegated to a straight-to-video release, Retroactive is a smart and
entertaining thriller that deserves a wider audience. The film features
a relatively simple but clever premise: Superhottie Kylie Travis stars
as Karen Warren, a police negotiator who's on vacation in Texas. She
gets into a car accident and has to hitchhike with a somewhat odd, but
seemingly friendly couple, Frank and Rayanne (James Belushi and Shannon
But everything goes horribly wrong when Frank discovers Rayanne has
been cheating on him and he murders her right in front of Karen's eyes,
who proceeds to run to the nearest building, a government-owned complex
run by a single occupant, a scientist named Brian (Frank Whaley).
There, he accidentally activates the time travel device he was working
on, sending Karen back twenty minutes, just as she's been picked up by
Frank. She then becomes determined to stop the horrible crime for
occurring, but unfortunately, the body count grows even larger and she
must go back again to prevent an even larger massacre.
Retroactive's appeal holds mainly to sci-fi action fans. The plot has a
lot of twists and turns, which keeps the film unpredictable and
suspenseful. But the real treat is for action fans, who should strap in
for an adrenaline-pumping thrill ride. From the moment Travis is sent
back in time, the film deliver non-stop excitement. There are tense
shootouts and fast-paced car chases, the latter of which boasts some of
the most exhilarating stunts since The Road Warrior. From a visceral
point-of-view, Retroactive surpasses most of Hollywood's recent summer
The film still has its flaws, none of them surprisingly having to do
with a sense of repetition, considering each action setpiece has the
same basic setting and situation (car chase on a lonely desert highway,
shootout at a gas station). Credit director Louis Morneau for keeping
each sequence fresh and taut with suspense. The set-up may be the same,
but the results and resolutions considerably differ. Rather, what I do
have a problem with is some technical error during the shootouts.
Belushi is shown firing a six-bullet revolver at one point, but clearly
fires more than ten rounds. Another similar blatant miscalculation
occurs again near the end. Plot holes and leaps of logic are expected
in this kind of film, but the number of shots fired from a gun
shouldn't be that hard to keep track of.
As the film's tough heroine, the absolutely gorgeous Kylie Travis is
refreshingly intelligent and strong-willed. She occasionally has
trouble holding back that British accent of hers, but still comes
across quite well (looks great in that black tank-top, too). James
Belushi is a lot of fun as the psychotic villain, clearly relishing the
over-the-top role, even though his character does lose menace through
some ridiculous one-liners. Frank Whaley is quite good as the young
scientist, hampered only by a single scene that requires him to forget
the logic of his own device which Travis corrects him on.
With blistering, fast-paced action and a fun story, Retroactive proves
to be a highly enjoyable way to spend ninety minutes. Most of the
running time features a tight tank-top and pants wearing Kylie Travis
kicking ass, so that alone is enough to recommend the film.
