The Human Race: DVD Review











The Movie:

Eighty people are abducted from a city street by an unknown entity and forced to participate in a brutal race to the death. The rules are simple; follow the arrows or you will die, step on the grass and you will die, get lapped twice and you will die. Only one participant will survive. Race or die.  There can only be one winner, but who will survive and for what purpose?

Automatically the first thing that comes to mind when I initially saw this title was The Running Man. Ok, It’s not exactly like The Running Man but there’s people running in it……like a lot. It’s an interesting premise of survival and I tried to put myself in the shoes of the participants but all I kept thinking was “Push everyone in the grass and keep moving” and there is a moment where that happens but the movie in my mind would’ve been a lot shorter which wouldn’t have been entertaining at all. The most entertaining factor of this film was just wondering what was going to happen next. Throughout the film you see people getting picked off one by one and the way the main characters interact with each other and their situation. It somewhat poses a question of the way society looks and treats each other as well as “How far would you go to survive?”. The acting wasn’t the most solid but the actors got their point across. The MVP award goes to Eddie McGee who’s agility on only one leg in the fight scenes was truly impressive. He’s definitely an inspiration to anyone with a disability. The one thing that I wasn’t too fond of was the ending to the film. It just kind of was very random and came out of nowhere. I don’t really want to say what it is exactly in case anyone is curious to find out. Either way I think people will at least find this interesting enough to check out. Yes, it’s a low budget film but if you’re looking for something that is a bit left field then check it out.

Special Features:

Deleted Scenes – A few scenes here that don’t make much of an impact and were understandably cut.

The Human Race is available July 22nd on DVD from XLrator Media
