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
Avoid it and don't trust ratings with low number of voters
This movie is piece of s**it that I quit watching at last quarter. After I saw its IMDb rating above 7 I hoped from the first crappy minute that it will change to better. But it went from bad to worse each new second. I hate myself for being stubborn and wasting even the shortest part of my life to this film. Avoid it or you'll regret as I did.
Long story short. Don't trust to IMDb ratings until there is much more than 15 votes.
Avoid this in long circle. This is not 7-8 stars movie as some suc**rs voted. It's a piece of crap.
