really enjoyed this glimpse into a fictional bike courier in the streets of NYC. Although the plot wasn't very nuanced the overall story was pretty good. The stunt riding is crazy and that it happens all on New York's streets is pretty jaw dropping.
Joseph- Gordon Levitt is kamikaze in this film. Hat off to all the other cyclists too.

This movie has it's issues with plot and more but still entertaining and keeps your attention. It's funny in places and keeps a fast pace.

The story if you pay attention is a modified version of an older cycling bike messanger movie named Quicksilver from 1986 staring Keven Bacon. If you enjoy Premium Rush at all check out Quicksilver also.

Never seen a movie remotely like this. Creative and clever. As a cyclist I go out of my way to avoid traffic and this courier is comically seeking it. The crash scenes are amazingly realistic in appearance. Crazy good.

kind of cheesy, the overdubbed laugh was annoying, not sure about the guy's cycling position either, but I have to admit, quite enjoyable. Helps if you like cycling. Probably not a good representation of NYC bike messenger culture

Okay movie, I guess. Somewhat good action, not the best.

Surprised and prepared to be entertained by those crazy messenger bikers in the Streets of NYC. The camaraderie among cyclists and human stories might be tired themes but provided comic, endearing and thrilling elements to the film.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

A very enjoyable movie. While it was not what I was expecting based on the previews I had seen, I was more than pleasantly surprised by this gem. Yes, it's over the top. Yes, it's a bit cartoonish at times. However, it's a great thrill ride and something original. Outstanding performances all around, and amazing stunt work! It's not going to win any oscars, but if you're in the mood for pure, unadulterated fun, check this one out!

Violence: It's like the biggest cheese it movie ever; but the chase scenes are very realistic and action packed. Maybe too much for some.

Coarse Language: Quite a lot of language actually, so if that bothers you, you might have a hard time with this movie.
