Feel the rush!!

This is a great little film. It had me laughing out loud every couple of minutes. The plot is pretty simple; the action scenes are great the tricks are ok. The thing that makes this film special is the cast. When you have a cast with great chemistry, and are 100% committed it shows on the screen. I also have to give all the actors credit on their training regimen the effort they put into looking/becoming their characters is exemplary.
Willie is the top bike messenger in New York City. He cuts between traffic, through pedestrians, and any other obstacles to deliver his package on time. He rides a steel frame bike with only one ultra-high gear and no breaks. The same way he lives his life always going forwards never stopping. Willie's main rival at work and for the affections of his girlfriend is Manny, the second fastest rider who will do anything to undercut Willie. Once again it is impressive how much research and time has been done for this movie everything looks and feels authentic from the characters look, to their attitude and mannerisms. Willie is given a package to deliver across New York City. The trouble is someone else want it and is willing to do anything to get it.
Great chase scenes, with bikes vs. cars, bikes vs. bikes, bikes vs. people. This film is truly original, really funny and entertaining. After watching this you will appreciate all the hard work from everyone involved in this film to make something magical. Watch it you won't regret it.
