Film Review - The Comeback Trail


Director George Gallo has been busy, recently seen on screen in last spring’s “Vanquish,” which also happens to be one of the worst films of the year. Gallo fares a little better with a remake of 1982’s little-seen “The Comeback Trail,” co-scripting (with Josh Posner) a farce about the Hollywood B-movie industry, which is something the helmer knows plenty about. Armed with over 50 producers(!) and a cast of iconic dramatic actors hungry for a paycheck, and Gallo submits his most tolerable endeavor in years. That’s not to suggest “The Comeback Trail” is a good movie, as it repeatedly falls short in the comedy department despite its farcical intent. It’s just not a painful sit, with Gallo generating enough manic energy to keep the feature moving forward with plenty of silly business. It’s not another “Vanquish,” which is as close to praise one can muster for a Gallo endeavor these days. Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
