Quicksilver wasn't enough? Granted that was a quarter-century ago, but didn't the Kevin Bacon bike-messenger movie cure us of the need to see these guys (and gals) racing through our city streets, breaking every rule of traffic law possible while endangering the lives of all on-hand pedestrians? Guess not. So now we have co-writer (with John Kamps) and director David Koepp's new addition to this deservedly meager genre, PREMIUM RUSH, staring one of TrustMovies' favorite young actors, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I mention my liking of Mr. Gordon-Levitt upfront, so that when I tell you that, from almost the first few moments of the film, I wished his character immediate death, you'll understand that this is nothing personal.
Cosmopolis is but the latest example), I was quite taken with Richard Gere's portrayal of exactly this sort of guy in the upcoming Arbitrage, which opens next week (more on this one later). No, my particular bête noire is the bicycle messenger, over, around and about which I myself have had numerous close calls avoiding disaster. So watching these creeps endanger NYC pedestrians and motorists as they gleefully zoom around town in Mr. Koepp's movie (the filmmaker is shown above) is particularly provoking.
