Premium Rush gets you right into the action. The Story has some plot holes but what movie doesn't? The movie is good and has a lot of action. The Bike chases are some of the best chase scenes in movies. Of course Joseph Gordon Levitt did his thing. The supporting cast wasn't bad either. Overall a great movie experience and its a short movie.

If you're attracted to the basic premise---a movie about bike couriers peddling around New York---then you won't be disappointed. The acting is adequate, it's not too long, and the plot moves along at a good clip. It's not great, won't win any awards, and won't change your life. If you're in the mood for 90 odd minutes of light entertainment, this can fit the bill.

I go to all JGL movies. I am very glad I went to this . The fact that the actors did lots of the riding added a great deal to this effort.

I LIKED IT!! I was so excited to see this film esp since one of my close friends is a bike msgnr. When Wiley (JGL) said " Fixed Gear, No brakes, can't stop" it brought me back to a convo I had with my frnd when I asked him why he doesn't have breaks, he simply stated, "Why would I?" Everything in this movie was so real. The bike riding was insane and it shows just how dangerous of a job this is. I found it entertaining. Funny when it needed to be, serious when it needed to be and everything else when it needed to be. Well acted, good script, nice story. . all around this is a good movie to go see.
NO there are no major explosives and crazy action ish going on, its bike action and if you don't like that then you won't like this. If you know anything about bike messengers or bike competitions like the Stupor Bowl bike race, etc then you will love what this movie has to offer!! I always worried about my friend on his bike however I am proud of him for finding something he likes.

A good story line that kept me interested throughout the entire movie. The movie is essentially one long chase scene without the typical flipping or burning cars - only the occasional (and believable) fender bender. The bad guy was a real bad guy and there were several lines in the movie that were clever or funny. Flashback scenes did a great job of providing just enough background at just the right times. I would go see it again.
