Premium Rush

Rated PG-13 91 minutes 2011

Not learning anything from Kevin Bacon’s bike-messenger blunder Quicksilver, Joseph Gordon-Levitt wastes his time as Wilee, a failed lawyer turned bike messenger who likes speed so much that he has no brakes. When he gets a mysterious parcel, he must race through the streets of Manhattan while avoiding an overacting villain (Michael Shannon, in a rare less-than-great performance). As cool as some of the sequences are, they service a plot that goes nowhere. There are many moments of bike-riders recklessly dodging cars, running red lights and generally causing street mayhem. At one point, Shannon’s character tells Wilee’s that everybody in New York hates him and could care less about him. There are no truer words spoken in Premium Rush.
