User reviews on Premium Rush
What starts out as a normal day at work for a bike delivery driver turns out to be anything but. Overall entertaining movie lots of action from begining to end.
Solid four stars, not a lot of range here, everyone is giving it 3 stars +. The movie is intense from beginning to end. Fun times, good laughs, no point where you get bored. Interesting characters... Nothing more to say, see it, it's worth the money in the theater.
I enjoyed watching this film and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters. This film is fast paced, fun to watch and it also has brains which is pretty rare for films like this one.The characters are well developed so the audience actually cares about what will happen to them and the story is interesting and involving. I did not expect to like this movie but I found it to be quite thrilling and that was a pleasant surprise. I also thought that the cast did a great job and they definitely made this film that much better. Overall, this was a fun film to watch and I think it was worth my time and money.
I thought this film was pretty good and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. I am a fan of action films and I decided to give this one a try because it looked different from anything I have seen before, I guess I was intrigued by the trailer. I am glad to say that the film was pretty good and it was very original. I liked the chase scenes a lot and they were shot very well, I also enjoyed the story and the acting was amazing as well. Basically, I had a great time watching this film and so will you.
I did not think that i will like this film but I did and I am surprised by it. The whole idea of the movie is pretty interesting and I enjoyed the fast pace of this film and the way New York was portrayed in this film. I liked the chase scenes and I have never seen anything quite like it and it was like a breath of fresh air. I am also a big fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and he was great in this film, actually I thought that the whole cast was great. Overall, I had a good time watching this film and I think most people will like it as well.
You might be wondering why someone like Joseph Gordon-Levitt who just appeared in one of the year’s best movies, The Dark Knight Rises, is doing in a decidedly low-brow and B-grade movie like Premium Rush. It falls squarely into that oddest of film genres periodically put out by Tinsel Town: high concept, low budget – and therefore, full of mixed results. To be sure, the entire picture rests on Levitt’s petite sized frame which has him as Wilee, an agile Manhattan bicycle messenger that is used to dodging cars, cabs, and pedestrians that would sooner plow him down than look at him. I mean, who sends anything by bicycle these days? That’s so . . . June Cleaver.
Wilee is about to drop off the last package of the day which is on ‘premium rush’ delivery status. When he makes it to the destination, however, he discovers that the messenger of the package must be killed upon delivery – at least that’s what the wayward NYPD detective played by Michael Shannon says when he wants the package for his own. And this Wilee had not been told by his boss who sent him on the high paying assignment. Hence, the goose chase begins that goes all across Manhattan and the New York gutter line.
We’ve seen a thousand suspense-ridden chasing movies where an innocent young protagonist is hunted down by a nefarious gang or villain with an almost Gollum-like obsession for whatever the hero or heroine has in their possession. This movie is fun, if not exactly innovatory, and that should be enough reason to want to see anything during the closing days of the doldrums summer movie season. Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi also puts in a memorable cameo as a typical New Yorker. Not great cinema, but good enough if you check your expectations at the door.
