"I almost got killed 3 times in the last 20 min and it wasn't my fault." Wilee (Gordon-Levitt) is a bike messenger in Manhattan. It is one of the most dangerous jobs you can have but he is the best at what he does. When he is given an envelope to deliver he thinks it's just another job. After being confronted by Bobby Monday (Shannon) about it Wilee begins his delivery, but not everyone wants to see him succeed. I have to admit that I was not really looking forward to this going in. I though, how good can a movie about a guy who rides a bike be? While this is not amazing it is a pretty tense and exciting action movie. The race scenes are fun to watch and seeing how Wilee comes up with his routes is interesting to see. I'm not saying this is really something to rush (get it) out and see but it's not one to pass up if you get the chance. Overall, very entertaining and fun to watch. Just a good popcorn type movie where you don't really have to think. Those are good sometimes. I say B+.

Saw this movie back in theaters. As a biker, I thought it had great insight into bike culture. While carrying a slightly predictable plot, the movie was still was very entertaining, witty and funny. Oh yeah, and there is a twist at the end! Decent acting all around.

All in all, I don't buy very many movies but this one I will definitely watch again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie October 15, 2012
By S. Der
Format:Blu-ray
***Contain Spoilers***

I thought this was an interesting movie. I have never seen such a movie about bike messenger/delivery in New York. Maybe there is another movie like this, but this is the first one I know. If you know another feel free to name it and maybe I watch that one too.

I will talk about the action first. There is plenty! All the action is done on the bike, and it's pretty good. The main Male protagonist, Wilee, knows a lot stunts and mixes it up to do all the action scenes. You kind of have to let yourself believe that this one guy that is a bike messenger also knows how to do all these motocross stunts and tricks. But in another way, maybe it does make perfect sense. The way the movie makes out the job of bike messengers, Wilee does need to know all these tricks and stunts just to stay alive doing his job. Seems like bike messengers can be easily killed or serious injured doing what he does everyday by people walking, cars, or anything really on the road. All because they need to ride hard and fast to do their job.

What I really liked about the movie was this interesting "future look" Wile does. You will see him riding his bike and then he sees a situation where has many choices on the "paths he could take". Then, you see how each "path he could take" would do. Most of the paths lead him killing himself or getting seriously injured until he figures out, a path he would take that didn't get him killed or injured...most of time that is. It is possible that all paths are just plain bad. lol

Another thing I found interesting about the movie was how it the movie is played/shown to the audience. The movie doesn't follow a total linear path from start to finish.

Please keep in mind that this is a Hollywood film, a work of fiction, not a documentary nor a training film. I'm reasonably sure the cast, crew, director, producers, and every lawyer associated with the film disavow any intent of getting people who watch this film to emulate it in their daily lives. Okay? Good!

Ever since I first watched "Bullitt" (starring Steve McQueen, 1968) I've been a fan of GOOD chase films. Gods know there are plenty of BAD films in this genre. Watching a GOOD one is that much more pleasant.

That this is a chase film relying on bicycles is even better. Yes, I'm a person who rides a bicycle daily. Because I do so I believe I see things that those who don't ride miss. Barring a few minor things this is a GOOD bicycle movie as well.

The chase scenes are terrific! There are bike-on-bike chases and car-on-bike chases and both are so well shot that I kind of forgot where I was. I suppose it's a good thing that I'm not very familiar with the geography and physical layout of Manhattan as I'm sure there are a few edits that violate space-time as we know it.

One of my favorite things about the film was the three times the lead character was shown discovering a route through traffic. There's something about finding that bike-shaped hole that draws me in.

The lead characters, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung, do a great job (though not Oscar winningly so). There isn't anything particularly new in the storyline, plot, or character relationships but what's there is presented in an entertaining manner. I never cringed during any of the love-interest scenes or the character-development dialog, both of which can be fatal to a movie like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars HAVE YOU SEEN MY THIGHS? October 1, 2012
Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is an underachiever bike messenger in NYC. He has issues with his girlfriend Vanessa (Dania Ramirez) who in turn is being evicted by her roommate Nima(Jamie Chung) and she is being hit on by Wilee's work mate Manny (Wolé Parks).

Wilee likes to ride and is reckless. Once we get some quick character introductions, Wilee has to pick up a message from Nima...a premium rush, and deliver it in China Town. There is a policeman (Michael Shannon) with a gambling debt that is attempting to intercept the message.

The plot is straight forward with no twists. Most of the film is bike riding. The film starts out as a flashback and then gives us flashbacks within the flashback to explain plot points. I was rather bored with the whole film, but this might have a younger audience appeal.

Parental guide: 1 F-bomb (why do they do that?), no sex or nudity.

To sum it all up for you, this is the Quicksilver movie of this generation. However, I find the plot in this movie to be much more interesting than Quicksilver. Read more
