A crooked cop (Michael Shannon) pursues a New York City bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) carrying a mysterious package in this urban thriller from director/co-writer David Koepp. Every day, fearless courier Wilee (Gordon-Levitt) dodges death while weaving through traffic on his custom fixie -- a featherweight bike with one gear and no brakes. He always delivers his packages on time, but today's rush delivery could well be his last. With a mysterious envelope clutched close and a mad killer chasing him through the streets of Manhattan, Wilee must pedal for his life, and never look back.~Jason Buchanan
If you're looking for a great way to pass the time with a movie, this one is well worth it. It won't change your life, and there's no important social message (aka: preaching) that you'll be forced to digest. It's just a fast, fun, really well done film. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon are two of my absolute favorite actors, and they are both stellar in this one. Again, it's not paradigm shifting, it's just a movie. But for my money, it was more than worth the price of admission.
A real hidden gem that too few people say in theaters. A bicycle messenger who is an amazing rider, get involved with some seriously bad guys when he tries to help a friend, resulting in incredible chase scenes. Strong plot filled with action in a city setting that intensifies the action. Fine acting, satisfying conclusion.
I really enjoyed this movie as i have it in dvd and bought it in blue ray this time making sure i always have a copy. This is about the good guy winning and the bad guy losing. Very good action movie that will keep you excited from the start to finish and glad to add to your collection.
