Storyline

SPRINTER tells the story of Akeem Sharp who is set to be Jamaica's next big track-and-field sensation. Akeem hopes a rise in the track and field world will take him to the U.S. to reunite him with his mother who has supported the family while living as an illegal resident for over a decade. But Akeem's rising star is weighed down by turmoil at home: a volatile father, and an unruly older brother who insinuates himself into Akeem's career as a means of escaping - or perhaps enhancing - his scam artist hustle. Not only does Akeem have to prove to himself and everyone that he can succeed, but also overcome the struggles that may ultimately bring him down.

No it's not a great movie, just mediocre.
26 December 2019 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Sprinter isn't a movie that I will remember. It's a movie where I need to write a review immediately after seeing it otherwise I won't remember anything about it next week. It's just not that interesting as a story, often cliché, not that great of acting (actually pretty mediocre). The funny thing is that I read a reviewer saying the annoying thing were the subtitles. I thought they were the best thing of the movie because if you're not a Jamaican yourself you won't understand half of the movie.
