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
A team of Parkour practitioners is abducted by the criminal Mr. Frank (Danny Dyer) that puts remotely controlled necklaces with explosives around their necks to force them to participate in a millionaire gambling death race for their lives. The freerunner Ryan (Sean Faris) succeeds to deactivate his collar, but the evil Mr. Frank abducts his girlfriend Chelsea (Rebecca Da Costa). Now Ryan has to reach the evil mastermind to save Chelsea.
"Freerunner" is an awful thing with dreadful acting, story, screenplay, direction and camera. It is amazing how a producer can invest five million-dollars is such a garbage. As highlighted in another review, this is the worst acting ever. My vote is one (awful).
Title (Brazil): "Fuga Alucinante" ("Maddening Run")
