"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
***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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's A Great Little Action Film! January 26, 2013
By B. Ying
David Koepp and John Kamps came up with this little idea of making a film about NYC's bike messengers.

They wrote a simple story which could be any movie made by Jason Stratham(except he's too old for the role)
but they meticulously prepared and wrote the screenplay and made it into one of the most exciting and entertaining
action film of this past year with a team of young attractive cast and the great Michael Shannon as a cop.

Now this is a film involved storyline about the Chinese immigrants in the US but the filmmakers picked a great
Chinese cast and did not turn them into caricatures.

A highly recommended entertaining film and not to be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fixed gear, steel frame, no brakes January 26, 2013
Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a bike messenger for Security Courier in New York City and he's the best at what he does. He rides his bike (very quickly) with only one gear and no brakes.

He is having girl problems (Dania Ramirez) and one day gets a call to deliver a mysterious package super fast - premium rush - to Chinatown. Trying to get the package is a nasty mean NYPD detective (Michael Shannon).

Great action shots, wonderful city footage. There's not a complicated storyline but the movie is fun, fast paced, and action packed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hold on to your seats... January 18, 2013
By vmzfla
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This flick is sheer entertainment. Bicycle couriers; when you gotta get it there today and now. Joseph Gordon-Levitt among others,(and their stunt doubles)cycle through Manhattan with split second precision. The viewer through the eyes of Levitts character(Wilee) follows routes of anticipated disaster or escape. The chase scenes are hilarious at times but also remind us of the danger that cyclists face on NYC streets. This film uses the latest digital technology employing highlighted GPS. Premium, is the importance of the message that our hero must deliver. Rush, is get it to its' destination ASAP. Michael Shannon is deviously funny at times, but is down right ruthless as a corrupt cop. Buffed up fellow messenger cyclists, Dania Ramirez and Wole Parks are part of a love triangle of sorts with Levitt. Of the hour and thirty minutes filmed, over an hour is on bikes. Anyone remotely interested in cycling will enjoy this movie for the stunt work alone.

This is a very good movie. It is fast moving and feels very authentic. Good acting, good filming without the dizzying effect of hand held camera.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you're addicted to cycling, you'll stay awake...
If you are between 15 and 25 more or less, are annoyed by interesting plots and like to cycle, you will be entertained. Otherwise, skip it for anything else to do you've got!
