Ryan and other traceurs (parkour practitioners) frequently submit themselves to races through the city organized by Reese, a promoter who makes an Internet gambling fortune off of them while giving them a minuscule amount (if that) in return. With the last race of the season coming up, Ryan decides it's time to secretly break Reese's rule against participants betting on it. Having wagered all he has, the stakes are rudely raised against the racers. Reese's boss, Mr. Frank, has all along been surreptitiously grooming these athletes for a high-stakes death race for the sadistic entertainment of his billionaire gambling buddies. To guarantee every runner's enthusiastic participation, they're abducted, gassed, and fitted with explosive, remote-controlled collars, instilling every lad with a sincere desire to heed the rules and keep his head in the race. Sixty minutes on the clock. Ready, set, go! Written by
...I expected a really good entertaining movie, when I checked IMDb and saw a 7.2 rating.
The movie is for my opinion a b-movie. The characters are not well played. The stunts are boring...oh moment....were there stunts???
Then, the movie tried hard to get some attention with exploding heads. The idea of the movie isn't too bad, but it's just not believable what's going on there. The guy has 20 minutes left to live and is talking with his girlfriend in the car^^
The free runners also have endless power and running, fighting nearly without breathing.
I'll make it short: For me, one of the worst movies I've ever seen. If you are a free runner fan, go back to B13 movie...this was much better.
