The pace of the movie is really fantastic, but once you get past that and realize you've been watching a 90-minute bike chase, which isn't nearly as thrilling as the trailer lets on, you begin to deflate.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt' fixed-wheel bike has a single gear and no brakes, and you could say the same of director David Koepp's film, which is light on character and plot. But, even on two wheels, the action is fast and furious.
I expected "Premium Rush" would be an exciting film, but I didn't think it would be so much fun to watch. It has plenty of thrills, laughs and a plot that is more complicated and interesting than I thought it would be.
