Editorial Reviews

Freerunner captures all the unstoppable force of urban acrobatic freerunning (also known as parkour) in this relentless pulse-pounding thriller that leaves "fast" and "furious" in the dust! Sean Faris (Never Back Down) stars as Ryan, a freerunner who will do whatever it takes to break free from Reese (Tamer Hassan, Kick-Ass), a mobster who controls a band of street racers. They run for the rush and for the money, but now they are running for their lives in the ultimate death race. With exploding collars locked around their necks, they have just one hour to make it across town all for the amusement of Mr. Frank (Danny Dyer) and a betting organization with stakes on who will live and who will die. First place gets $1 million. There is no second place and time is running out for Ryan to save himself and rescue his kidnapped girlfriend. World Champion Freerunner Ryan Doyle costars with Seymour Cassel (Artie Lang's Beer League) in this non-stop thriller with explosive action and mind-blowing stunts!

Customer Reviews

Pretty much the entire script and all dialogue.
K. Harris
The free runners will then have to get back to the green zone in 5 mins or they will blow up from the explosive collars.
S. Der
The out here is to just go youtubing and get much better runs. (d.)

Has the world been clamoring for a movie about parkour or freerunning, an acrobatic style of moving through areas densely populated with obstacles? There is no doubt that since its inception in France, the FreeRunning movement has been gaining traction in some urban markets--but can you really make a movie about it? Or perhaps the better question is, should you? Whatever the answer may be, we've got "Freerunner." I'm going to be particularly blunt in my evaluation of "Freerunner" as a movie. With amateur theatrics, nonsensical plotting, blatant errors in continuity and timing, and head-scratching dialogue--the movie is a bizarre disaster. Feel free to call me names now. But with some well choreographed sequences, does it achieve what it set out to do? Probably. I doubt anyone here really thought they were serving up a new classic, they were only interested in showcasing Freerunning as a phenomenon. As such, certain action segments are quite successful.

The movie's so-called plot revolves around an established group of racing freerunners fronted by a low-level hood. Sean Faris, playing an idealist hoping to establish his new life, bets everything on what he hopes will be his last race. The movie begins as the race progresses with jumping, fighting, and general mayhem. But things take a sinister turn. I actually would not reveal the plot development that transforms the movie at the 30 minute mark--it is the film's biggest moment. But any surprise has already been destroyed by the film's marketing, product description, and DVD cover. So, I'll be vague and say that the race turns into a scramble for life itself as unscrupulous billionaires hijack the proceedings for inhuman sport. The rest is a fairly entertaining, fairly brainless race to the finish. Who will survive?

This is a film about an illegal sport called "Freerunning." A group of young men run through the city (filmed in Cleveland), impervious to sidewalks, direct routes, or roads. Rather they run and jump over things to the thrill of Internet viewers. Then man who runs this operation makes his money from running a bookie operation, allowing viewers to bet on the runners. Of course once you have the 3 flags needed to win the tournament, you need to be an expert kick boxer to keep them. The running is fast paced with acrobatics done to an appropriate sound track.

Ryan (Sean Faris), one of the runners works mopping floors in a hospital and cares for his bed ridden grandfather. He has a gf (Rebecca Da Costa) who is way out of his league. She sings in a bar and dreams of living on a beach. Ryan, who lost the last race, and has never beaten Finch (Ryan Doyle) decides to go against the rules and bet on himself using a shill so he can make that big score and move to the beach with his gf and gramps. Yes, even his gf thinks the whole thing is stupid. I thought, "This is it? This is the best plot they can attach to freerunning?"

Then it happens, the unexpected plot twist involving an evil black man named, "Jacque."

F-bomb, sex, nudity. 3 1/2 stars
