"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!

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.

This is a 90 minute movie, so I'll try to scale my comments accordingly.

I expected the typical "action" cliche`s with this movie, lots of car
wrecks, guns, explosions, that sort of thing. Premium Rush has almost
zero of that, literally.

Instead, it has its own definition of "action", where it invites you
to try to imagine yourself, physically, in the role of the character.
The sweat, the fatigue, the momentary panic, the impact, the pain.

As an essay on how to make a very good movie without a lot of money,
Premium Rush basically says "simplify". So in addition to action,
it also has a plot which I found to be direct, interesting, and even
realistic.

For me, a lot of the realism comes from the character development of
the bad guy, impressively played by Michael Shannon. Again, the bad
guy avoids all the cliche`s I expected. Instead, he's a bad guy with
enough "ordinary" qualities to make him realistic. He knows he has
personality and character problems, he knows he is definitely not a
good guy, but he also knows he is in a *lot* of trouble. His survival
is at stake, and frankly, he really is having a very bad day. Bad bad.
But he believes he has a chance to survive it, and he does everything
he can to do so.

I would describe the development of the other characters as efficient
and compact, well-crafted for the length of the movie, the production
cost, and the emphasis on action and a direct plot. These people are
a lot like people you can find in the real world, and their lives don't
have complex backstories. They're just a little crazy, that's all.

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.
