This movie is simply a waste of time.

First-class boring.

The slick parkour adds dynamic flair and physicality to the fight and chase scenes, while the seamlessly captured rhythm of the choreography makes the thrilling action easy to follow.

The main character has choices and he constantly makes the wrong ones, and as he explains his mother still lost her house so all of that borrowing money from the wrong people was pointless and resulting in him looking over his shoulder and putting people who he saw as family (his landlord and her kid) in danger.

The choppy material weighs it down, it could've been much more enjoyable if the film opted for lighter tone.

The plot has it's unexpected twist and turns.

The characters are bland and uninteresting.

It turns out that the movie is just borderline entertaining.

The most dramatically intense scene occurs when something happens to a car that hasn't run in a very long time.

There is a couple of predictable scenarios, but the twist about their "leader" was unexpected.

Don't waste any time even considering watching this film.

The sub plots to this story are compelling and keep us engaged.

Tracers is only about an hour and thirty three minutes long, if it'd been longer it would have gotten really boring real quick.

Ultimately it's a forgettable movie but it's worth watching once.

I was napping while they were running, action in this movie is predictable.

It's really bad story-wise and pretty bad acting-wise, but the parkour actions scenes are entertaining.

The only time Tracers became riveting was about an hour into the movie and then shortly after that chase and shoot out scene the pacing started to dry up again, they should have spent more time in the editing room and cut some scenes or make new scenes.

Parcour is very interesting and exciting and I doubt that the baddies using it will diminish the art.

Overall: This might be the worst movie I've watched all year.

The film starts off brightly, gets dull very quickly, the plot is mundane and even the Parkour can get repetitive.

I found this movie as enjoyable as I found his John Singleton directed action thriller Abduction.

Apart from the jumps not very well filmed, i got headache at one point, by the bad camera angles, the movie is slow.

There's a lot of jumping, hopping, falling and rolling but it's enjoyable to watch.

The story though is a bit dull.

My rating was based upon the unpredictable storyline , action shots, good job casting .

I found the movie very predictable, to be honest.

It is a nice movie for seeing at home, if you are bored.

One of the worst movies I've seen a while .

My main reasons to see this movie, which I expected to be a mess of a story with a lot of jumping around, was to see the jumping around and get some adrenaline in the system.

The action plot catches up late and it becomes rushed and pointless.

Tracers is confident when it leaps through obstacles, but the tiresome screenplay and uninteresting personalities prevent it from reaching any plateau.

It is disappointingly tepid when it is classified as an action thriller but if you are able to overlook at its classified genre, it may be worth a watch on a rainy and boring day.

Ultimately though the film, whilst enjoyable, fails to live up to its full potential.

In all aspects of parkour this movie was really correct and entertaining visually.

A predictable love triangle story, an absurd semi plot-twist about the group, and a big heist that goes terribly wrong round out the ridiculous plot.

Initially this seemed like an exciting concept, parkour infused robberies.

The story-arc is intriguing throughout the majority, and while there are a few holes, I was left feeling content with the final execution.

The pacing of the movie is okay for about half an hour, then it just drags on, of course there was the tired love interest scenario which is extremely cliché and boring, the girl looks like she is 10 years old and even though Taylor Lautner looks young, he still looks too old for her, that romance scenario was just plain awkward.

Tracers is an action packed adrenaline rush with some gripping twists.

You got to have skills and got to be fit and also like the adrenaline rush you get when doing dangerous things.

It has a storyline that is enjoyable and it has the twist which you don't see coming .

An Action Packed Adrenaline Rush.

There's nothing new to the story, if you can call it that, and it's entirely predictable.

Pretty much everyone is bland and uninspired.

Later he joins them that changes his fate, but whether he gets the girl or not, that tells with the thrilling story development and some amazing stunts.

TRACERS is another boring, kid-friendly thriller set on the bustling streets of New York.

This film is original, fast paced, and brings to light a new action star, who isn't in his sixties or the WWE.

It was painfully boring.

There were plenty of these chase scenes and they did bring some excitement in an otherwise dull movie.

There is a lot of parker action throughout the movie, some criminal activity that keeps it exciting, with some love triangle drama on the side.

But after probably 20 minutes into it I got bored, it felt like a never ending YouTube parkour tutorial.
