” …this movie doesn’t break any new ground for its story, but the execution is solid and it succeeds because of the charisma of Rossi, who remains tough and capable while also showing vulnerability and even kindness in the midst of nonstop attempts on his life and the man he’s been hired to bring back.” B&S About Movies
“The two leads had good charisma. I know it’s a generic plot ala Midnight Run but it is well executed. Theo Rossi and the bail-jumping kid both put in way above-average performances for a low-budget movie and Kim Coates is always good. For a movie with obvious budget constraints, it’s well shot and edited.” 7 out of 10, Ibz 1979
“While it suffers in comparison to the films that inspired it, The Getback is an acceptable film. The characters needed a bit more work, and the third-rate blues on the soundtrack are a poor substitute for the Busboys’ high-energy tracks in 48 Hrs. But for a low-budget action film, it delivers more than is expected of it and that’s enough to keep most viewers happy.” 3 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
