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 statmanjeff

Surprise Surprise Incredible Horrible Movie!
13 November 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

So I am going to regret saying this. But even Uwe Boll is making better movies. Blasphemy! I know. I did say I was going to regret saying that. When watching the movie I was not really expecting much.But this being about free running I was expecting some decent stunts. If there was some free running involved I barely could make out what was happening because one of the gimmicks was the use of a shaky cam. Whose brilliant idea was that. People not knowing anything about free running must get the wrong impression about this extreme sports. As not single shot shows what free running really is. To top it of they mix in a Battle Royale game and Danny Dyer overacting like he never did before. Seriously I did give this movie a chance. But everything about it is just plain horrible.Avoid!
