Premium Rush 2012

     Wilee didn’t take the bar exam after law school, he feels sitting behind a desk wearing a gray suit would be something he doesn’t want to do.  He works for a bike messenger company, he has a featherweight bike with one gear and no brakes.  He always delivers his packages on time but could be killed every day on this job.  A woman gives him a letter to deliver but a man is stopping at nothing to get the letter back.
     The cycling scenes are good but can you watch 81 minutes of people riding bikes fast in New York?  There isn’t enough of a plot and the one here is weak on top of that.  How many times can you hear the same sentence about no brakes too?  3* (This movie is OK)

91 min, Drama directed by David Koepp with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez, Sean Kennedy, Kym Perfetto, Anthony Chisholm.

Note:  Blockbuster 3 ½*, imdb 6.5 out of 10, 76% critic 62% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
