Premium Rush: a review by Thadeus Brown
Premium Rush isn?t my favorite film of the year, and isn?t as fun as I hoped it to be, even though there are some really great WHAT THE ***&^ moments that had me cracking up, (envisioned getting hit by a car multiple times), the movie under whelmed me on that aspect. The last good quality I would like to mention is the tremendously good acting. Michael Shannon plays such a great dirty cop in the film; he had me laughing my pants off throughout the whole runtime, I really enjoyed his character a lot. Also, can?t forget about Joseph Gordan-Levitt as the lead man. He plays the character perfect, smart, energetic and funny, and brings good energy to the screen.
Overall, Premium Rush is filled with fantastic performances and a good story, but even so, the film is dull at times, and gets old very fast. Not a movie I would want to pay full price for, but as a good rental.
