The film is now rated PG-13 on appeal for some intense violence, perilous action, sexual content and language.

"Tracers" is an action-thriller directed by Daniel Benmayor and produced by the "Twilight Saga" team of Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill Entertainment.

Lautner stars as a New York City bike messenger who's in debt to an organized crime gang. He crashes his bike into a sexy stranger who introduces him to the world of parkour, which quickly seduces him.

CARA chairman Joan Graves represented the ratings board while "Tracers'" post production producer Nancy Kirhoffer and stunt coordinator/second unit director Gary Powell represented the appellant, Melbarken, Inc.
