Cooler and more stylized than most cat-and-mouse thrillers, "Premium Rush" is one enjoyably wild ride.

Who would have thought that bikes can also be used to have a good action film? The team who made this did, and they were successful.

The 1st time I saw a trailer for Premium Rush, It made me cringe seeing a guy hit by a car & flying through the air & I thought this is a movie I do NOT want to see.When I saw it at the library I thought Why not? It's free sooo after watching it.... It was a good movie that hooked me right from the start & I really enjoyed it even though I didn't expect to.I thought it was just going to be a movie about bike messengers chasing each other through the streets of NY while being chased by the police but it was way better than that.Premium Rush surprised me how good it was & maybe it will surprise you

Wilee as in Wile E. Coyote (Gordon-Levitt) is a New York City bike messenger whose name and reputation are so legendary that customers ask for him by name. Wilee has a passion to ride, weaving in and out of pedestrians and cars, subconsciously deciding which route to take and how to avoid a wipeout. He rides fixed gear and refuses to have brakes because he feels it’s “more dangerous”. On one particular day of business, he is asked to deliver an envelope by his girlfriend's roommate Nima (Jamie Chung) who desperately needs it delivered to a Chinese hawaladar by 7pm.
The mysterious envelope worth $50,000 immediately catches the eye of a nasty NYC cop Bobby Monday (played terrifically by Michael Shannon). Monday is a gambling-addict, who is told by the known loan-shark that if he …

Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a New York City bicycle messenger encounters an eager cop named Bobby Monday (Michael Shannon) who needs a package. He refuses the request and the chase ensues for the mysterious package. Without the leads, this would now have been that electrifying. Joseph Gordon-Levitt seemed fit for the physical role while the enigmatic underrated talents of Michael Shannon shows his acting chops especially during his confrontations with the biker. Spectacular choreography on the streets were magnificent, much like Playtime with the usage of certain settings. Soundtrack was very applicable to the mood and the plot was well paced. The directions on Wilee's phone was detailed and was a nice touch. Only thing from keeping this from becoming great was its …

I need to make a confession: I’m not a huge fan of “cyclists”. I don’t mean people who go on casual bike rides through the countryside, or a quick spin around their neighborhood with their kids. I mean the ones who wear spandex shorts, and jerseys, and look like they have 1% body fat. The ones who fly through intersections while the rest of us impatiently wait our turn at the stop sign. I even had the chance to watch a leg of the Tour De France while I was living over there, and all I could think was: “I’ve never seen so many men with less leg hair than me!” However, after seeing ‘Premium Rush’, I have a newfound admiration for anyone who can commandeer such a small mode of transportation through areas that aren’t meant to be fit through safely.
THE GOOD: …
