    Premium Rush features fearless stunt work that shames most computer trickery. Too bad I didn't believe a minute of it. show more

    What makes this whole thing work is, first of all, Wilee's ride, an elegant machine that lacks any gears or brakes. show more

    Despite far-fetched plot points - such as a flash mob of bike messengers ready to rumble and thwart evil - it's easy to get caught up in this life-or-death two-wheeled slalom. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Unfortunately, David Koepp - the A-list Hollywood screenwriter (Jurassic Park, War of the Worlds) and decidedly less-successful director (Ghost Town, Secret Window) - can't find the right Looney Tunes-ish tone for his immersion into bike-messenger culture. show more

    The actors click into high gear, and Premium Rush delivers. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    A quick pace and always-enjoyable lead Joseph Gordon-Levitt will please moviegoers, even if the picture's ticking-clock approach isn't as invigoratingly pulpy here as in the Koepp-penned "Snake Eyes" and "Panic Room." show more

    Premium Rush is a half-entertaining, half-exasperating movie. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    You're looking for depth and profundity, this is the wrong movie. But under the direction of David Koepp ("Secret Window," the screenplays for "Mission: Impossible" and "Spider-Man"), this is an expert and spellbinding adventure. show more

    Premium Rush is great fun - nimble, quick, the thinking person's mindless entertainment. show more

    Energetic movie if you like riding but it felt like an episode of Scooby Doo where a lot of time was spent running. Also the story was unsatisfying. Worth a watch though.

    It was too long! I kept waiting for the end. Not much of a story line.

    Entertaining storyline and exciting action scenes. Minus two stars because two or three of the characters were a little over the top almost to the point of being silly.

    I liked this movie. I went in expecting very little. In fact, I watched the movie because the projector went down on another screening room. Turned out for the better. All the elements were there. The story was entertaining enough, the visuals were cool, and all actors pulled it off, except for Michael Shannon, his rendition of a detective was too comedic to buy it. Still it was very watchable. We won\'t understand the Dalai Lama better or figure a way to solve world hunger, but if you have a big bucket of popcorn and a, preferably, attractive companion with you, this is definitely the ticket.
