Shannon should have made Roscoe P. Coltrane noises the whole time.

SSG Syndicate

A silly, race-against-time thriller, filled with impressive chase scenes and stunt work on a bike without brakes.

Creative Loafing

A movie built around a bicycle messenger is a risky venture -- as an adrenaline-pumper, it sounds about as promising as Driving Miss Daisy -- but writer-director David Koepp invests in our need for speed right from the first frame.

As a tribute to an unheralded profession, the movie has some potential. As a thriller, it hits the skids pretty quickly.

What we're left with are bicycles scooting around Manhattan and some mildly diverting stunt work...

It earns its hour-and-a-half of thrills honestly, with good solid storytelling and filmmaking. It's amazing how rare that is these days.

Atlantic City Weekly

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon face off in a 90-minute chase layered with flashbacks that cleverly fill in the details with Pulp Fiction-esque precision.

While Michael Shannon's performance is hilarious for every reason it shouldn't be, Joseph Gordon-Levitt disappoints for one of the first (and hopefully last) moments of his career. "Premium Rush" just feels sloppy and unsatisfying.

It finds joy in the little details: the sharp dialogue, the crackerjack chases, the constant yellow CG lines covering Wilee's routes away from (or all too often straight into) danger.

Throwing "premium" into the title may be overselling such a trifling entertainment. But for the cinematically discounted days of late summer, it's a perfectly diverting little ride.

While the premise is a bit idiotic, and at a brisk 90 minutes, 'Premium Rush' delivers the best ride due to Gordon-Levitt and Shannon's hilarious and appealing performances.

August 24, 2012

The whole thing is nearly brought to its knees by David Sardy's abominable score. It's amongst the most generic electronica-ish tripe ever splattered across a film and it's incessant.

It's a good thing that adrenaline tends to short-circuit logical thinking; the plot is mostly nonsensical, but you'll be too thrilled by the literal twists and turns to care much.

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.

I don't know how a film this entertaining and expertly-made can show up the last week of summer, but I'm not complaining.

Popcorn gets stuck in the bubblegum of director/co-writer David Koepp's teenybopper crowd-pleaser.

The simple, utterly satisfying Premium Rush delivers just what the title promises.

In many ways a live-action Road Runner cartoon... The other influence is Howard Hawks, in particular 'Only Angels Have Wings'...

...lacking characters to care about and with only the whisper of a story, 91 minutes of people riding bicycles at high speed through traffic-laden New York City isn't enough.
