Parkour
8 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Actually, a sub-par heist movie, but entertaining enough. I found the first heist more enjoyable to watch than the second which held no surprises for me. The first pokes fun at local television crew types which the writers apparently find predictable, stupid and gullible.

The plot and characters are not memorable, but as I said entertaining. What really impressed me about the film was the use of Parkour by the Chris Brown character. They brought it down from the rooftops of Europe down to the busy streets of Los Angeles. This free running art was used to go through a subway station, a park, a commercial building and through moving traffic. To me Parkour is much more exciting than a car chase. The one unbelievable part was that the the two cops, played by Dillon and Hernandez, could keep up the chase without being trained in the art. It was not the best Parkour I have seen in a movie, but I applaud the effort and it made watching the film worth it and for a while suspenseful.
