Story


Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day's work for Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the best of New York's agile and aggressive bicycle messengers. It takes a special breed to ride the fixie - super lightweight, single-gear bikes with no brakes and riders who are equal part skilled cyclists and suicidal nutcases who risk becoming a smear on the pavement every time they head into traffic. But a guy who's used to putting his life on the line is about to get more than even he is used to when a routine delivery turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan. When Wilee picks up his last envelope of the day on a premium rush run, he discovers this package is different. This time, someone is actually trying to kill him.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..actually doesn't sound like it would work at all as a tightly wound slice of street action, but it does, and in radically fresh ways..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..the movie speeds along crisply, providing just enough exposition to lend a few pounds of emotional weight without bogging down the breakneck pace..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..is a pure rush, like lightning on wheels, and if people get a bicycle safety message out of it, consider it a bonus..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
