Premium Rush

Rated PG-13 (MPAA) 91 min. 2012

New York's newest superhero rides a fixie in the non-stop Premium Rush; a cyclist porn chase flick starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Levitt plays Wilee (like the Roadrunner-chasing coyote) a high speed bike messenger who proudly zips around Manhattan on a fixed gear, steel frame bike with no brakes. After picking up a seemingly ordinary delivery from an old college friend, Wilee is caught in an increasingly violent road race with one looney crooked cop (a gleefully psychotic Michael Shannon). Largely playing things out in real time, director David Koepp (writer of everything from Jurassic Park to Spider-Man) almost overcrowds his plot with side quests and flashbacks. But the digressions are enjoyable and flesh out what could otherwise be a lean trip. Premium Rush is all asphalt scrapes, cracked bones and pure adrenaline. Not to mention, relentlessly fun. -Jacob Boon
