Tracers stars Cuckoo‘s Taylor Lautner as New York City bike messenger Cam, wanted by the Chinese mafia, who escapes into the world of parkour after meeting beautiful stranger Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos).
He then joins her crew, a team that uses parkour to pull off heists. Hoping to alleviate his deepening debt to a violent crime gang, as the stakes get higher with more dangerous side ventures, the payouts get bigger. Cam must use every ounce of his skill to stay alive as the crew’s heists grow more daring with each job, and gang enforcers breathe relentlessly down his neck.
The film also stars Rafi Gavron, Adam Rayner and Sam Medina, and is directed by Daniel Benmayor, from a script by Leslie Bohem, Matt Johnson, Kevin Lund and T.J. Scott.
Tracers is out this Friday in the US, but doesn’t yet have a UK release date. To me, it feels a bit too much like Joseph Gordon Levitt’s Premium Rush, given the initial premise, and even that was rather so-so.
