Caper flick, with parkour
March 26, 2015
Caper flick tries simultaneously to take advantage of the rising popularity of parkour (running across rooftops, etc.) and reverse the declining popularity of Twilight alum Taylor Lautner.
Hackneyed plot has an NYC bike messenger taking up parkour, initially to get close to a girl he saw doing it (an inert Marie Avgeropoulos). Turns out she’s part of a gang of modern-day cat burglars run by the Dickensian Miller, who’s not what he seems, yada yada. Oh, and Taylor happens to owe an unexplained $15,000 to some nasty Chinatown loan sharks. He joins up. Not much new here except all the jumping around. Japanese title: Unlimited. (93 min)
