Don't believe all the bad reviews.

The Human Race is not that bad at all, yes it's got it's faults but is an interesting movie, that pits completely random people against each other in a bid to find the most resilient. The ending came as another supprise to me, and actually left me wanting more. Give it a try then decide for yourself, but definitely don't believe the extreme low ratings some have given.

And now for something else...

As much as I tried to take "The Human Race" seriously, I found it progressively more and more difficult to do so. Because there was absolutely no storyline here. It was just a simple plot about people having to run and follow some simple rules or they would die.

That was basically the entire storyline. But wait, there is more. Once the winner of the race was found, the movie took a turn for the worse, becoming even more ludicrous then it had been up to that point. I am not going to give away any spoilers here, and whether or not you like that turn of events is of course individual. I, personally, didn't care for that at all.

There were some nice aspects to the movie. Such in the likes of some displays of human behavior in certain situations. Now, I don't really think that people would succumb to that kind of behavior in that short a period. But still, for the sake of entertainment (and this is a movie after all),then it worked out nicely enough.

The movie has a fair amount of blood and violence, which sort of semi makes up for the lack of a proper storyline.

"The Human Race" is not heavy on acting. This is basically just a movie about racing. So don't expect anything major in the drama and talent department.

This movie is not for just everyone, and I certainly wasn't amongst those who would claim to love this movie right away. Having seen it once is enough for me, and I can honestly say that I will not be watching it a second time.

The best thing about the movie had to be the genius of the title, it worked out in more than one way. I was just waiting for a voice to announce "Watch this movie, or die. Like this movie, or die."

A group of about 80 people suddenly appear on a sidewalk and must compete in a race or die. There are rules to this race, ones that must be followed, or you die...such as no stepping on the grass. If you are lapped twice, you also die. In an attempt to keep people alive several came up with the idea that everyone stay inside a house and not run. However true to society, or the human race, one person starts running, so everyone must now run. The film was in part, designed to look at the human race in this microcosm as competition vs. cooperation. We see the best and worse come out in us as things degrade to a free-for-all.

The question they raise is "why" which is one the viewer must endure also. The clues are minor. Any seasoned film watcher would have the reason on their short list. The film ended leaving itself open for a sequel. The main problem with the film is that it took too long to get to the end. Things got boring as we waited for an answer. The main character acting was good. Trista Robinson and Eddie McGee were convincing.

This is not a film for everyone. Decent rental.
