Premium Rush

Overall I enjoyed it. It was fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat. I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again but I think Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the most talented young actors in the industry and chooses his roles wisely. While the movie is a little more mainstream than most of his indie roles it doesn’t feel like he’s selling out and even though the role isn’t too emotionally demanding it is physically and he still immerses himself to the point where he literally bleeds (see end credits). Michael Shannon also does a great job of keeping his villain believable while coming close to the over the top, campy border. My only issue was the structure was distracting at times and pulled me out of the story.
