Synopsis


Premium Rush
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, Rovi

    A Hidden Gem

    Loved this film. This is a wonderful little movie. It has fast paced action, and is well acted, written and directed. It has all it needs including a feel good ending. Just the thought of a messenger wildly riding a light weight bicycle without brakes through New York City traffic is enough to give you a rush. Throw in a corrupt cop with ties to the Chinese mob, a piece of paper worth thousands of dollars, and young college co-ed in distress and things get really interesting. All in all a fun movie.

    This movie works well when you're looking for something light and easy to enjoy. High-energy plot and a cast/crew that clearly had fun making this film creates a thoroughly entertaining 90 minutes. This would also be a great "background" film to have playing while you're doing other chores around the house, depending on where your home theater is! Joseph Gordon-Levitt is excellent, as always, and Michael Shannon chews the scenery as a rotten cop. Lots of fun, but I wouldn't try any of the stuff they do on their bikes! The only downside is that there aren't a lot of extras, which is a shame. Even standard-issue DVDs used to have a decent amount of extras, but they don't seem to be doing that as much anymore.

    This movie is your typical person mistakenly comes across and item or merchandise that does not belong to them and is highly valuable and the owner or person seeking for it will stop at nothing to get it back. What makes this movie different is the incredible action scenes and the great cinematography, as well as an amazing cast ensemble. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dania Ramirez play a believable couple trying to work out their issues while dealing with the harsh realities and struggles of real life.

    A different kind of chase movie

    Great small action film, accomplishes what it set out to do; nothing more, nothing less. JGL gives a strong physical performance, and of course can handle that is required for him in the movie. Michael Shannon is as always fascinating to watch, even here in a oft-used character type of the dirty cop. Guess I can call this this the best bike movie of all time.

    Was not expecting much about this tale involving bicycle messengers, but the villian was driven, threatening, and obsessed. His target was clever to evade him and eventually goes on the offensive. How can chasing a bicycle be exciting? Well add New York traffic and and you will be surprised.

    The unique subject matter of this movie plot allows it to suceed. The courier fraternity is displayed, allowing the viewer into a lifestyle that is unique.. The biking sequences are well done, and the acting is OK. Watch it when your done with your fav's.

    If you are tired of the regular car scene action in all major films then you gotta watch this. Action scenes using a bike is totally different and intriguing. I enjoyed this flick because it took a different approach and added a lot of action and some comedy too. Fixie lol
