Action thriller

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: NYC bicycle messenger Wilee (as in Wile E. Coyote)
Dania Ramirez: Wilee’s ex-girlfriend Vanessa
Jamie Chung: Vanessa’s roomie Nima
Assif Mandvi: Raj, company dispatcher
Michael Shannon: NYPD Detective Robert Monday
Wolé Parks: Manny, another bicycle messenger
Christopher Place: NYPD bicycle cop

Clearly not an Academy Award candidate, it is nevertheless interesting enough watching a group of “kamikaze” bike riders do their thing along the streets of Manhattan. To crank up the action (as if there is not enough) a rogue cop wants to get his hands on the premium rush package before it gets delivered. Let the fun begin.

The crisp editing keeps things moving along and the unusual routes these delivery people take result in some comic moments to lighten things up, just in case you’re taking things too seriously.
for some violence, intense action sequences and language.
