Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Luke Bonanno @
    • Excerpt: Not everything about Premium Rush works, but it generates almost constant goodwill as it jumps around chronologically with purpose and lets us into this unusual world that we know exists but do not give much thought.
  • Daniel Carlson @ Pajiba
  • Stephen Carty @ Flix Capacitor
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: director David Koepp (“Stir of Echoes”) has orchestrated many thrilling sequences of bicyclists dodging and weaving through the real life traffic of Manhattan
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Premium Rush simply cannot recover from the pace-deflating expository flashbacks.
  • Kimberly Gadette @ doddle
    • Excerpt: Like a bike wheel, the film reflects an ever-spinning cycle of scenes that race forward and then, just as quickly, pedal back in time. A riveting action, um, spiller, with Shannon as a bad cop who couldn’t be better.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: A silly race-against-time thriller, filled with impressive chase scenes and stunt work on a bike without brakes
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer

  • Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: New York bicycle couriers lead such dangerous lives that it seems it would be possible to make a thrilling movie about them without having conventional villains or plots. Because these folks ignore traffic rules and share the road with vehicles that could crunch them like bugs, thrills should come automatically.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Quite a fun little film that gets some of its entertainment value from the relative novelty of its subject matter
  • Jason McKiernan @ Next Projection
    • Excerpt: The movie is about as fast and freewheeling the road-running Wilee, and as stubbornly resourceful as his Coyote-ish Shannon-tastic foe.
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
    • Excerpt: Premium Rush is a fun, fast-paced chase movie that plays like an extended cartoon.
  • Ryan McNeil @ The Matinee
    • Excerpt: The summer is almost over, but get ready for one last ride.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Although a tad over-written and a little awkward in places, Premium Rush is a diverting high concept chase thriller that actually manages to produce something just a little unique. Much like the title character, the movie is at its best when it’s moving – zig-zagging and free-wheeling at a decent enough pace that the flaws fade away.
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: At last, a summer chase film that doesn’t insult your intelligence or waste your money. Trust me, this one works!

    • Excerpt: Popcorn gets stuck in the bubblegum of director/co-writer David Koepp’s teenybopper crowd-pleaser.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guy’s Opinion
  • S. James Wegg @ JWR
    • Excerpt: A decidedly crowded road movie
