In this underscripted and not wholly convincing drama, Kevin Bacon plays Jack Casey, an up-and-coming broker who crashes on the stock market one day and cashes in whatever he has left to become a bicycle messenger in San Francisco. Although not exactly a logical alternative, bicycling the hilly streets of S.F. turns out to be dangerous after Casey runs into Gypsy (Rudy Ramos), the street pusher who has the messengers run drugs for him. A series of characters and events drop in and out of the conflict between Gypsy and Casey, including love interest Terri (Jami Gertz) and Casey's friend Hector (Paul Rodriguez). Music dominates throughout the film which includes scenes of breakdancing on bikes.~Eleanor Mannikka
Good movie, fun. Premium Rush was heavily inspired by it. It has a dingy color palate that takes me back to 80's NYC (and Frisco for a hill race). The transfer is pristine from beginning to end. The master reel must have been only viewed once and properly stored. RLJ did a very good job puting this together. No extras though.
Kevin Bacon plays a hotshot stock broker turned bicycle delivery man when things suddenly turn south on him and he loses it all…. and all of his father's retirement nest egg. The film is quick to lose the attention of my adhd mind. It starts off quick, but develops lag over the duration…
If you are a Kevin Bacon fan this is a pretty descent flick. Not his best work, but definately worth picking up. I was happy to get the movie on Blu-ray. I am a little disappointed that you can't get these at the BB store location.
