A bunch of annoying cyclists battle bent police in order to help smuggle in illegal immigrants with help from Chinese gangsters. A likable film though surprisingly considering the unpopularity of each of the four groups. Good casting helps and it never goes too over the top eithe...

Premium Rush is David Koepp's action thriller about a cyclist being pursued through New York City by a crooked cop. This film had the potential of being a great picture that should have thrilled you from start to finish. I thought the cycling scenes were entertaining for what the...

Dumb, but kinda fun. Awesome performance by the bad guy. Glad it wasn't any longer than it was.

Set in the adrenaline soaked, high energy world of bike messengers, this is David Koepp's breezy, wild, and fun take on the chase film.
A straight-up B-movie in the classic sense, this is the story of Wilee- a tough college burn-out who quenches his love of thrills by working as...

A fun, if forgettable, ride concerning a bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and one of his pickups that gets him tangled up with a corrupt, crazed NYPD officer (Michael Shannon). As said, it is fun, especially the ridiculously clever bike chase scenes through the city. However...

The movie was fast paced and had a lot of a...

"Brakes are death," proclaims protagonist Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 500 Days of Summer) in a flashback sequence towards the end of "Premium Rush". David Koepp ("Ghost Town"), who both directed and wrote the movie, would have been wise to take this advice. For a film that promi...

I got pulled in once it got moving! The only thing I disliked was Michael Shannon as the corrupt NYC cop!

Premium Rush is a solid chase film with plenty of enjoyable performances (especially Michael Shannon as the sleazy bad guy), good action sequences, and a breakneck pace that almost never lets up. The story isn't really anything to write home about, but some funny moments and uni...

Not a great film, but highly entertaining nonetheless. The cast is very solid and Michael Shannon does a surprisingly phenomenal job as the pathetically corrupt but slightly comedic cop Bobby Monday. Creative cinematography and thrillingly unique non-stop action involving bikes e...
