These people are from all walks of life: young and old, athletic and disabled, white-collared and homeless. The rules to a race boom in their heads, in their own voice and language, laying out what will become a horrific race of terror: 'If you are lapped twice, you die. If you step off the path, you die. If you touch the grass, you will die. Race... or die.' Written by Anonymous

Time not-so-well wasted
27 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

There were some serious flaws in with the mentality of a bunch of poorly developed characters racing for their life (many not giving the impression they actually wanted to live - unconvincing in their actions). The overall plot, acting, attempted and overused effects were very sub-par.

After actually sitting through this mess (pop, pop, splat), it eventually concluded the absolute wrong direction (I won't reveal anything, in case someone else wants to donate some of their downtime taking this in - personally, I want my 1+ hour back).

So as one of the other reviewers mentioned - much of the time spent on this movie was likely ramping up the IMDb rating and writing some rave reviews. Sorry to the fans, but as we're all entitled to an opinion, I will definitely be steering clear of any sequel, prequel, or literary releases, and at your own discretion, you have been warned - so depending how valuable your time is to you...
