"Akeem" winning his first 200m at a high school race in Jamaica.

 

There's a new movie opening on April 24th called "Sprinter."

 

It's directed by Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith. It's about a Jamaican teen sprinter who eventually wins a world championship in the 200m and is reunited with his mother in the U.S. at the same time.

The film is not rated but it's NOT for children or young audiences. Emphasis on Viewer Discretion Advised. We watched the entire screener copy ahead of time and the film teaches young "Akeem" some life lessons but also shows some rough lifestyles in the beginning. All turns out well with Akeem's family though. Coolest scene is when Usain Bolt steps on the track during one of Akeem's practices and gives him the advice of a life time on how to run the 200m.

Cool movie but leave the youngsters at home for this one.
