Parkour: The Movie....
19 March 2015 | by rprince-832-6294See all my reviews

-Tracers (2015) movie review:

-Tracers is about a bike messenger who tries to escape his debt with the Chinese mob by joining a parkour group. Somehow that makes sense.

-It is pretty much a movie starring parkour. No, I did not like it.

-The story doesn't really line up and it only 'jumps' from plot-point to plot-point through convenience and nonsensical events.

-The film takes a while to get anything done, and then rushes a lot, and then takes forever, etc.

-None of the acting is any good really. It stars Team Jacob from Twilight, who was not bad, but had nothing worth noting. Pretty much everyone is bland and uninspired. The two leads, who are supposed to end up together and stuff, have no chemistry.

-The characters are inconsistent and do things that just do not add up. For example: The lead gets his bike hit and ruined by a car. He lies about it later, which doesn't make sense. Like why would you need to? The villains are also likable, making the lead who can't pay these guys look worse.

-The music was fine. Interesting, fitting, and defining of a modern instrumental soundtrack and album. Doesn't fit the movie's quality in any way, but they get points for trying.

-The film does have its moments and the people in it do know parkour pretty well. But parkour cannot be enough to hold a movie together. Mix that with rather cheesy dialogue and the movie is just not good.

-Another example of the writing: Guy ruins his bike, two scenes pass, goes to a meeting with the Chinese mob in different area with his bike, and throws out bike. Does that mean you took the broken bike around with you? For like a day? Walking? To your meeting with the Chinese mob?

-Tracers is a poor excuse to feature parkour in a film. Kinda like Divergent. But not as good. Tracers is not really worth the time.

-It has some suggestive content and a PG-13 amount of language.
