Review this title!

Suspense in fun action flick.

Now,see there's proof that action movies don't need to go overboard with bloody violence and gore just to make it good.Premium Rush has heavy levels of tension throughout and will keep you on the edge of your seat,getting equally shocked at plot twists and turns and equally laughing along at quick and witty spouts by the characters.Good for tweens and over.

Ok

Violence 2/5 A person is beat to death and one person is shot little blood Language 3/5 A lot Sex 2/5 A lot of mild jokes the main female charcted where's suggestive clothes. Parents need to know this movie is kind of annoying but well made (the villan is annoying). U might like it.

Action thriller has strong language

Violence is minimal but somewhat strong. Action and peril is constant. The main standout is the language, lots of it. Strong language, f-bomb, most others. Fine for teens, maybe younger.

Mediocre

Not that good. I was disappointed because Joseph Gordon Levitt is one of my favorite actors. This movie is so cheesy that it deserves a USDA grade more than an mpaa rating. Lots of language and violence in this high octane bike thriller. The villain is so stupid for a nypd guy. So dumb that its funny

A captivating and suspenseful look into the relatively unknown world of New York City's bike messengers.

Joseph-Gordon Levitt just cannot make a bad movie. He was born to act and proves it in this stunning performance as the hilarious lead character Wilee. Wilee is a bike messenger in the streets of New York, where danger is everywhere: from pedestrians to angry cabs. When he takes on a seemingly normal bike delivery things change drastically for him; the movie takes place in the following 1 to 2 hours of his life. The only serious issue you should have with letting your younger kids watch this film is the regular use of minor language. The more common words used were d---, s---, a--, and a main character frequently refers to/calls a cop d-----bag. The one f--- is used quite early on in the movie, and is quickly forgotten, it does not take a focal point in the scene either. Unlike a lot of PG-13 movies these days, there is hardly any sexual content. Only a few kisses between two characters and some innuendo. The violence is honestly not as horrible as the review describes or as bad as they could have made it. It is quite tastefully done without being overly graphic or barbaric. Multiple bike messengers are hit by cars, but a vast majority of it is when you are inside Wilee's mind as he maps out different routes and trying to decide what way he can go without being harmed. The most graphic that a visible injury gets in this movie are scraped knees, elbows, and faces. There is also one case of extremely painful bruised ribs. Like I said, not gory but just right. The man with the bad temper that they talk about in the review will not pause to think before he hits someone. At one point, he does beat a man to death. But at the end of the scene when he is trying to wake him up, the man grunts, which lets us know that he is not dead yet (but he does later die from his injuries). The same ill-tempered man also chokes a woman in order to receive information from her. I highly recommend this movie to families with kids about 13+ because the language and some violent content are just a little bit too much for younger audiences.

Some violence and Language

Language includes 1 use of the f- word but it is at the beginning and easy to forget. Many s- words and name-calling. Violence includes a man beaten to death and harsh bike crashes.

Awesome, different, extremely entertaining action flick that replaces guns and fighting with bike riding

This movie was awesome!! The chases were really good and the script kept me interested throughout!! They do a lot of flashbacks that connect the dots and everything and I thought they were all really interesting. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was really good and Michael Shannon was great and gave a really cheesy over the top villian that was crazy but not bane crazy. Overall, it was really awesome. 9+

terrible. dont waste your money on this messy film

its all over the place, one guy gets beaten to death, one guy gets put in a coma and imagines meeting a girl in a bar. willie is a great role model. even if you allow your child to watch it, dont see it in theatres for full price. get it on netflix or get it at matinee price.
