The vastly underappreciated Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Wilee, a law school grad who has traded a life of gray suits for the challenges of being a New York bike messenger. He’s the kind of guy who lives life at such a breakneck speed, his bike doesn’t have brakes. “Premium Rush” lives up to its name.
Richard Gere’s Robert Miller is a charismatic money maker who needs a big deal to go through to cover up some of his financial and sexual indiscretions. The driving theme of director/writer Nicholas Jarecki’s movie is that the rich and powerful can get away with murder.
