It looks like screenwriter David Keopp's (Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible) writing takes a hit when he's also taking on the role of director.

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.

It's weightless and graceless, complete with a stock love story, a cloying human interest angle, and no shortage of poor acting.

It's a tight little thriller, briskly told. And I'm already having a hard time remembering anything else about It.
July 17, 2013
Satisfying on a basic, fun level, but also stylishly produced and not insulting to the viewer's intelligence.

The movie, idiotic as it is, has its charms, thanks in large part to its two main actors.

Gordon-Levitt proves he's the best actor on two wheels, pedaling furiously to save a grueling ride from becoming more tiresome.

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.

Want more from a late-summer joyride than slides, wheelies and bunny hops? Get a load of Shannon, dementedly inspired, trying out an oddball accent and Richard Widmark giggle.

Gordon-Levitt is, as usual, a likeable hero, though he's underused in a film that's plainly more interested in kinetics than drama.

Just a few spokes short of a wheel, guys.

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.
January 8, 2013
A fun chase film starring the likable Joseph Gordon-Levitt, with a deliciously over-the-top performance by Michael Shannon as a villainous crooked cop, and some X Games-worthy bike stunts.

Premium Rush is that rare bird: a chase picture that's just a chase picture - and a dandy one.
December 17, 2012
The kind of low-expectation late-summer film that can all too often fall under the radar but delivers more honestly and forcefully than most of its warm-weather predecessors.

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.

Maybe the plot's a little thin, but this is end of summer escapism at its best and it guarantees you'll never look at a biker in NYC the same way again.

Eye-popping practical bike work should provide interested viewers with a middle-of-the-road rush that's a bit short of 'premium.'

... a lightning-paced, hyper-adrenalized entertainment.

September 21, 2012
There is also a romance and scenes of what may or may not be human trafficking but unless the action is happening on the back of a Schwinn it pretty much is only hinted at on screen.
