Premium Rush gave me a rush!

It was a great movie. It kept my attention at all times. The action was great. The whole suspense thing was captivating. I'd see it again! Just a couple of questionable items. Being a cyclist, I know you can't crash like they did and climb back up on your bike as often as they did. But to the unknowledgeable, it's pretty awesome to do that.

Pretty Good Rush

We got there 10 minutes into the movie, but it wasn't hard to figure out what was going on. Had no problems with Michael Shannon as the bad guy. But that Manny guy sorta got on my nerves. It was a reliable drama with a few twists and turns (no pun intended). So go see Premium Rush

I like the high energy chase in the movie in all and Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt did a grounded solid character yet I couldn't/didn't like the other people in the movie that much. It was okay.

I saw two chase movies in the same day Hit & Run and Premium Rush

I saw two chase movies in the same day Hit & Run and Premium Rush. Yes my adrenalin was throbbing by the end of day and I felt as if I raced along side both of the movies. I felt Premium Rush was a better movie because the plot twisted, it turned and moved faster than they could petal. I gave it a must go because I didn't know how it would get to the end. Yes we all know the Hollywood made film. I recommend you see Premium Rush first. Then if there is any money left in the budget see Hit & Run. Both HAVE to be seen on the big screen or just don't bother.

Premium B plus

Rode my new single speed to the theatre, got there twenty minutes after the stated start time - it was still in previews. The problem with bike messengers is they are so passionate about the wrong things. Not career choice so much as who they choose as enemies. Cab drivers are really in the same boat, customers are generally sympathetic, but email and messenger companies are decimating the ranks of the urban bike messenger. Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks the same as Wilie as he did on Rosanne and Third Rock From the Sun. He really seems to have a lot of fun with the role. Stay a minute or so into the credits to see him smiling after landing in the back window of a cab, with blood running down his arm, a real-life injury that required thirty-one stitches. Michael Shannon in the Wiley Coyote role as Detective Bobby Monday also has a lot of fun and does a wonderful job serving as the pivot for the moral dilemma. The problem with these 'B' movies is they depend on no one calling police
