Premium Rush

Super action-packed movie. Amazing action scenes in and around New York, super acting, and a really deep bottom line message regarding illegal immigrants. Pretty violent in places. The movie jumps back and forth in time several times, but it wasn't distracting and gave you better insight into the storyline. Some of the cycling scenes were really intense and super cinematography to accomplish this. Totally enjoyed the movie and was thoroughly entertained.

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 I expected

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.

This movie brings believable characters with redeeming qualities with pleanty of fast action that will have you rooting for the under-dog. Great performances by Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon. Go see it already.

It might not be art

Premium Rush might not count as Art in the sense that a Peter Greenaway, Michelangelo Antonioni, or Bernardo Bertolucci movie might, but rest assured, you will enjoy this one a whole lot more. There are some minor plausibility issues in the courier industry-insider scenes, but as a whole, this movie zips with perfect narrative force. And then there's the bike riding scenes. Adrenaline, humour, and intricacy blend for some of the best movie action I've seen in decades. Character development errs on the shallow side, but this hardly matters for a caper flick.
