Pedal to The Metal
Those of us who’ve lived in the urban jungles of America have familiar with the folks who are called Bike messengers. Those who of us who drive during rush hour or during the regular office days see them as a hazard to the flow of safe traffic, and while I have to admit that there are indeed some messengers who truly push the limits and do not respect the law, I understand the need for such men. They say that if you don’t want any service that can prove dangerous, then make sure there …

Premium Rush won my heart so thoroughly with its opening monologue alone that it would have taken a galactic screwup for me to be completely put off it. Reviewers have made a lot over one small line in said monologue: "I like to ride. Fixed gear. No brakes. Can't stop. Don't want to, either."

I worked that dangerous and punishing job myself on the Chicago circuit for several years, and …

*** out of ****    One of the first images we see in David Koepp's "Premium Rush" is of its main character Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as his body is flying mid-air in slow motion towards the ground, where it appears that he's had quite the fall.

It was directed and co-written by David Koepp, who proves yet again that, no matter what genre he works in, his flair for outlandish material is his strong suit. To illustrate my point, consider Death Becomes Her, Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, Stir of Echoes, …

   "I live my life how I ride, no gears, no brakes," This is just one of the lines that come out of our protagonist's mouths.  But how could you possibly be rooting for any bike rider after living in the city for as long as anyone has. Bikers are  the bane of both city drivers and walkers, full of hipsters, weaving in and out of traffic, running red lights whenever they feel.  Bikers are the worst.  I'm sure you my biker reader are a perfectly …
