Dan O'Neill50 - Premium Rush gives the audience the type of escapism fun that they need around the dog days of August, but almost ruins itself with a convoluted plot, over-the-top acting from Shannon, and a terrible script that just gets worse and worse as it goes along, almost until the point of where you just want these people to just ride their freakin’ bikes and shut the hell up!

Bryan Lienesch45 - Premium Rush is directed like it's a video game, and the acting, dialogue, and plot have obvious holes as if it were one.
