This is a pretty much by-the-numbers film and you can see what's going to happen long before it happens. But there are some better than average things going on, including some alternate action sequences, some route sequences, and flashbacks that show you the same situation from a variety of perspectives.

I thought it was going to be a messenger and some package blah, blah, blah...It was such a good story line and amazing footage of riding through the busy streets of NY! Loved it!

Better than the trailers. Am not sure how much is faked, and how much is real, but at the end of the movie, there's a quick blurb that u may miss if you leave early showing 'Joe's' mangled bike and the back of a cab with the glass broken out where he landed. He obviously is into riding..! It reminded me of when I could only afford a bike, and I loved weaving in and out of traffic. I would be horrified beyond words if I had ever been the cause of crashes, tho. Surely, it's not really like that in NY..??? They would pass laws if it was that bad? Great movie for 3-D...

Fast-paced, but dull just the same because of a wretched screenplay. The movie has a "concept" and not much else. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is good in what must be the most "nothing" role he's ever played. Michael Shannon is supposed to be psychotic, so I guess his over-the-top style in this film is appropriate.
There's more "gee, this is bad" to laugh at in this movie, but it's a shame.

The action sequence is exciting and the bike riding is amazing but be prepared for nearly non stop profanity to go along with the action. I would have liked to take my kids back for the excitement and positive message but the language is too much.
