      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It's built out of familiar parts, but no matter how formulaic Premium Rush's storyline might seem, it's elevated by high-octane action and enjoyable performances.

      Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online The pace of the movie is really fantastic, but once you get past that and realize you've been watching a 90-minute bike chase, which isn't nearly as thrilling as the trailer lets on, you begin to deflate. Rated: D+ Sep 7, 2017 Full Review A.A. Dowd Time Out Chicago Want more from a late-summer joyride than slides, wheelies and bunny hops? Get a load of Shannon, dementedly inspired, trying out an oddball accent and Richard Widmark giggle. Rated: 3/5 Jan 8, 2013 Full Review Keith Uhlich Time Out Just a few spokes short of a wheel, guys. Rated: 3/5 Jan 8, 2013 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand Director David Koepp... understands the mechanics of action cinema and he puts the promise of 'Premium Rush' right in the title. There’s not much to the plot but the journey is a rush. Jun 11, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review What a joy it is to be delivered such a coherent and smartly made action movie when so many these days are just the opposite. Rated: 3.5/4 Oct 3, 2022 Full Review Cory Woodroof Lumination Network It's handsome entertainment wrapped in a glitzy cover the kind that you relish in the now, laugh about in the later and recognize in the future.

      Alex F Brings back memories- ex bike messenger from NYC—do they still exist? I moved to DFW- no such thing as messengers down here :) Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Vitor R So, lets say you want a movie to watch on a friday night with your family where you dont think too much and just enjoy some popcorn and a soda, you may enjoy this. A good chase 2010's movie with the great Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But, there are a few problens with this movie: the bad sex and swearword jokes that dont land, the long flashback scenes that explaind too much almost calling the audience dumb, the terrible attempt of making a evil speach on the ambulance and ending scene where the corrupt cop dies (i know that is a family friendly movie!!! but it would be better not show his death and implicitly say that). I will pass the bad cgi because it was 2012 🤷‍♂️ Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Dionisis T Mindless action but still it was enjoyable and a funny waste of 1 hour and 31 minutes of my life... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/25/23 Full Review Really enjoyed this movie, despite concerns of some films with Joseph being a little hit-or- miss. It was easy viewing for a Friday night and introduced me to an aspect of NYC I never new existed. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 10/21/23 Full Review StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 31 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/24/23 Full Review Tim JGL is great in this movie. The story and plot are fine but nothing special. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
