We've always thought this actor was great and we always like action movies. this movie didn't disappoint. the only flow was how did they find out the girl got money....didn't make sense.

Premium Rush is lots of fun! It is a film filled with action sequences that are remarkable, humorous, daring, and exciting! There is a marvelously nasty bad guy in it and unusual, amazing, athletic, witty and wonderful actors, and some beautiful female characters,as well, I enjoyed it even more than I expected. When actors commit themselves and use the exactly correct blend of hunor and pathos, which I must credit the director for that as well, then to coin a phrase, it results in a rollicking good time at the movies. The film is a rush of emotion, action, danger, pathos, and romance, all rolled into a very simple plot. The characters make it so good. So here's to Premium Rush, a good time at the movies. I was thinking as I watched it that it is exactly what we go to the movies for:escape, action, adventure, romance, good guys, bad guys, and in this case, masterful use of wit and whimsy, too.

Movie was enjoyable and had an interesting strategy of untying the plot through a series of flashbacks.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is an actor to keep an eye on -- his performances are getting stronger with each new film.

If you like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and you like a good action movie, then you should see this. It's almost impossible to fall asleep. For some reason, you feel good after watching this film.

OK, so maybe I'm biased because I ride bicycles...but this movie was what I expected - FUN AND ENTERTAINING. What surprised me is that the actors looked like they were actually riding those bikes. I'll have to read about whether they were or if it was stunt doubles.
The action scenes were good and believable and the storyline was almost contrived but didn't quite fall into that pit. The camera work was such that I almost thought I would get motion sick (I cannot even see 3D movies because of my weakness in this area!). But fortunately no sickness and I enjoyed some exciting scenes that I could relate to as a cyclist -- of a much lower caliber :-)
I enjoyed this movie from the start to the end. And I knew I would so it was time and money well spent.
