Premium Rush Freewesternagents

Among the bike couriers in New York City, no one is more determined and reckless than Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), an ex-law student more comfortable on his brakeless bike than in a suit. One day, a Chinese foreign student named Nima (Jamie Chung) arranges for him to deliver a vital envelope across the city. Unfortunately, a crooked cop, Det. Robert Monday (Michael Shannon), has a desperate need for that envelope himself and won't take 'No' for an answer. Now, Wilee finds himself relentlessly pursued by Monday and others in a situation becoming more complicated and dangerous by the minute. Together with his friends and rivals, Wilee must discover the secret of this dangerous delivery and make it through a gauntlet that will require all his cunning, daring and courage to survive.

Summary: Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day’s work for Wilee, 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. Premium Rush Critics Consensus. It's built out of familiar parts, but no matter how formulaic Premium Rush's storyline might seem, it's elevated by high-octane action and enjoyable performances. Premium Rush fools the audience because at first you think it’s just about a jaded bike messenger in New York City named Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), but in fact it is about immigrants and corrupt cops. The reason why people are misled is because Wilee is the main character.

otsoNY Comments: For some unknown reason, the scene before this one shows a street map, and we are lead to believe that the Security Courier headquarters is based along 28th Street and 11th Avenue, whereas its actual address is on 29th Street!

otsoNY Comments: This has to be the most bizarre thing to ever happen in a scene. The car drives into the underground car park on East 53rd Street between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue, but as the car exits the car park, it is now on West 95th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway. How is this possible and what was the point?

Plot: What's the story about?

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.
