what's the story

Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day’s work for Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the best of New York's agile and aggressive bicycle messengers. It takes a special breed to ride the fixie – super lightweight, single-gear bikes with no brakes and riders who are equal part skilled cyclists and suicidal nutcases who risk becoming a smear on the pavement every time they head into traffic.

But a guy who’s used to putting his life on the line is about to get more than even he is used to when a routine delivery turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan. When Wilee picks up his last envelope of the day on a premium rush run, he discovers this package is different. This time, someone is actually trying to kill him.

Action films frequently trade plot and plausibility for gravity-defying thrills and pyrotechnics. Did any of us honestly believe the booby-trapped bus in Speed, travelling at almost 70mph, could leap that 30-feet-long gap in the freeway and land safely on the other side without triggering an explosion? Or that Jake Gyllenhaal could somehow outrun a deadly freeze heralding a new ice age in The Day After Tomorrow? We willingly suspend disbelief for the sake of an adrenaline rush and writer-director David Koepp hopes we'll be in a similarly charitable mood for his testosterone-fuelled chase through the streets of Manhattan, set in the high-speed world of bicycle couriers. Unfolding largely in real time with occasional flashbacks to plug gaping holes in the narrative, Premium Rush races along the streets and avenues of the Big Apple at dizzying speed.
