  • mpho3's rating of the film Desert Runners

    From a filmmaking standpoint, Desert Runners is a solid albeit rather pedestrian (pun unintended) effort, but it's engaging film if you can get past wondering what makes people subject themselves to extreme tortures er I mean challenges. Of course people have different motivations, and seeing how they play out is as interesting as the varying desert terrains. (Just me or do the medical teams seem lacking)?
