Well, perhaps that's because there isn't much here to work with. The story is simple: Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a book courier who happens to be carrying something wanted by a crooked cop (Michael Shannon). But his Bike Courier Code Of Ethics combined with his apparent desire to put his life in danger for a minimum wage gig, results in him being chased across Manhattan and doing bike flips and sliding under flatbed trucks and shit. We hope he has a good ringer on the bike.
It looks pretty workmanlike and not particularly special, which is a bit of a disappointment considering how much we like the leads. But maybe some good scenery chewing from Shannon might make it worthwhile. "Premium Rush" opens on August 24th. Watch below.
