Storyline

Ryan and other traceurs (parkour practitioners) frequently submit themselves to races through the city organized by Reece, 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 Reece's rule against participants betting on it. Having wagered all he has, the stakes are rudely raised against the racers. Reece'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

Underwhelming to the extreme!
3 October 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

When I saw that Danny Dyer played a main character in this movie, I was worried that it was going to be just another of his mediocre flicks, but I was actually quite surprised. I was surprised at the fact that this was his most underwhelming role to date!

Danny Dyer has played acceptable roles as the underling to hard men in some of his previous movies, but it seems that in a few of his recent movies, he's been elevated to 'boss-man' status, and his acting inabilities are now shining through.

When I read the plot, I thought the movie had a little potential, but terminal disappointment set in after 15 minutes, and all I could do was wait impatiently for the monotonously predictable ending.

I have nothing against Danny Dyer per se, but giving him a lead role in any movie is a recipe for serious face palming.

I'm feeling generous, so I'll give it 3/10
