Mediocore Rush

The actng in this movie was good for the most part, except for one of the main characters, the bad guy himself Michael Shannon, I dont know why, but for some reason I can never take this guys acting serious. The movie itself is for the most part one constant chase scene on bikes, and although the ins and outs of the chases through traffic was exciting at first, to me it did wear out after about the first 15 minutes, then it seemed to be the same thing over and over again. The movie itself seems is a serious movie, but the director seems to stray off the course now and then by trying to add the wrong kind of humor in this movie, my example would be the police officer on the bike who chases them, to me it was throwing mall cop into what was meant to be a serious movie. I was also disappointed in the way they had Michael Shannon chasing him, as if this kind of pursuit would not draw the attention of the police department itself. I'd give this 2 of 4 stars, wait for the DVD .. Enjoy :)

For the continuous bike action sequences shot in NYC traffic alone it is a must see. No they are not splitting the atom here but they are also not blowing s**t up and there is minimal violence. For an action movie that is fresh. I personally love Joseph Gordon-Levitt and he carries the film well. Summer fun!

Lots of summer fun

A quick 90 minute ride from Columbia to the LES, this movie was a blast--the bike riding scenes left me cringing as the riders scraped past taxis, limos and trucks on the streets of Manhattan. Real bike riding, and a great performance by JGL as Wiley--just right blend of tension and realism in a summer filled with overwrought mega-explosion movies.

I didn't know what to think going into this movie, but after the first few minutes, I enjoyed the rest of the movie. People may find it confusing with the back and forth, but I thought the flashbacks to fill in the story is what makes the movie I definitely want to buy this movie once it comes out on DVD. I may even watch it again in the theatres.

Fun times, just don't go home doing the bike riding from this.

It's the type of movie you would normally watch on FX or TNT in the afternoon. It's light fun and, referencing another review, a throwback to 90's action. The cast was fine in their roles with the standouts being Gordon-Levitt and Shannon playing, I kid you not, Road-Runner and Wile E. Coyote. The movie's not thought provoking nor is it something that will stay with you, other than a potential of wanting to ride your bike stupidly, pass the second day but it's enough of a distraction that at the end of the day you can go home happy.
