About the Movie
Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day's work for Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the best of New York's agile and aggressive bicycle messengers. It takes a special breed to ride the fixie - super lightweight, single-gear bikes with no brakes and riders who are equal part skilled cyclists and nutcases who risk becoming a smear on the pavement every time they head into traffic. But a guy who's used to putting his life on the line is about to get more than even he is used to when his last envelope of the day - a routine "premium rush" run - turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan. Also starring Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Premium Rush earns its place as end-of-the-summer escapism, but I can't say that it's more than a well-done formula flick.
Fresh: I do have an abiding fondness for compact and coherent action movies, and this is surely one.
Fresh: An unpretentious throwback to the kind of action movie that had no need of superheroes, Premium Rush is hardly a classic but fun up to a point.
Rotten: This is supposed to be a life-and-death chase movie, not two friends messing around.
Spectacular cinematography, and if you’ve ever been on a bike in a crowd or city, you’ll feel the same pressure the characters do. Super fun to watch.
The best movie ever I want to do that for a job I like the part with the police at the service station
Good movie! Fun to watch.
