Brakes are death....,
This review is from: Premium Rush (Blu-ray + UV Copy)  (Blu-ray)
Among the bike couriers in New York, no one is more determined and reckless than Wilee, more comfortable on his bike than in a suit.
A Chinese foreign student arranges for him to deliver a vital envelope across the city. A crooked cop, Det. Monday, has a desperate need for that envelope himself and won't take no for an answer.
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 deadly gauntlet...
One of the more surprising films of the year, it's really odd how entertaining this movie is, and how familiar the film also is.
Levitt and especially Shannon, take what is essentially an average cat and mouse movie, and make it something that you actually pay attention to, rather than just have it on in the background whilst you are doing something else.
It's fast paced, very funny, and Shannon is easily having a ball playing the stereotypical bad cop.
It's one of those films that you will watch, and wonder why you've never heard of it before.
It does riff slightly on 1986's Quicksilver, but this is by far a better movie.
It's fun, with good stunts, and better performances.
Well worth seeing.
