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

Freerunner – TRASH IT (D) A group of freerunners race for their lives after being outfitted with explosive collars, and given 90 minutes to reach the other side of town or die trying. Ryan (Sean Faris) and his fellow parkour enthusiasts are used to taking big risks, and they make big money pushing the boundaries of physical endurance. But when Mr. Frank (Danny Dyer) enters the picture, Ryan's favorite pastime turns deadly serious. Mr. Frank and his friends are gamblers with no regard for human life, and their latest bet is which of the runners can navigate their urban jungle the fastest. With ticking time bombs strapped around their necks, the runners must find their way across the city in less than 90 minutes. The winner will receive a cool $1 million, and everyone else will get a splitting headache. When Ryan learns that his girlfriend has been kidnapped as well, he quickly realizes that he's got his work cut out for him. (RT) The only good thing about freerunner is its free running in the mist of horrible acting, yelling, production and dialogues. No need to watch it at all.
