A crooked cop (Michael Shannon) pursues a New York City bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) carrying a mysterious package in this urban thriller from director/co-writer David Koepp. Every day, fearless courier Wilee (Gordon-Levitt) dodges death while weaving through traffic on his custom fixie -- a featherweight bike with one gear and no brakes. He always delivers his packages on time, but today's rush delivery could well be his last. With a mysterious envelope clutched close and a mad killer chasing him through the streets of Manhattan, Wilee must pedal for his life, and never look back. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Our family went to see this movie and we all LOVED it! Jos Gordon-Levitt was outstanding and was surounded by an equally great cast, some whom I have not seen before. Who would have thought that a movie based on bicycle messengers in NY would be interesting, fun, and fulfilling plot wise? Also has wonderful camera work. What a diamond in the rough and without so much trash-just good entertainment. This might be a sleeper...
I must say the plot was well done and the acting was really good too Joseph Gordon-Levitt has become a really good actor over the years! Even though I like the actor my hopes weren't very high so I was surprised by how good it was. Part of it must have been the fact it was about bike messengers an idea that they didn't beat to death yet. A must see!
