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

Run, Freerunner, run. And stay away!
15 October 2011 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

The characters in Freerunner are an environmentalist's delight. They zip from place to place in the city, using only their legs! Yes, no fuel, no harmful gases, no pollution. But those who have watched this move would have felt some pollution could have been risked by dumping these guys(no offense to the actors) in a car(tied to a 100 kiloton steel ball) and pushing it off a bridge :p

All those prancing off walls, windows, restaurant tables & vehicles gave me a little headache after a while. Me thinks, freerunning is good to watch as a documentary, not in a movie with silly plot & characters.

Sean Farris as Ryan does a neat job but he's more of a physical actor than mental, if you know what I mean. As long as he gets action roles, his life in Hollywood should go just fine :) Amanda Fuller as Dalores(Ryan's girlfriend) was duh in acting but damn! in shape ;) Some other actors like Ryan Doyle as Finch(Ryan's biggest competitor), Tamer Hassan as the free runners' greedy manager and Danny Dyer as the psychotic businessman Mr.Frank(making millions out of the lives of the free runners) are good but all their efforts were finally for nothing really.

Any good deeds? Yeah, some of those cartwheeling, long jumps, high jumps...that they call freerunning. But many scenes later, you get tired and want to arrest them for public viewing nuisance charges.

Verdict: The last I heard, the producers are now wanted felons for having made this movie. Free runners, get them :p
