Did not expect I honestly turned this on one night because I had nothing to do. I expected a cross between Fast and the Furious and Speed but bikes. But the plot of the movie was surprisingly different. And a bit topical for what it's worth. It's a good film. Not great, but good enough that I feel like watching it a second time. Still though, these assholes will run you over.
Edge of my seat I'm 44 and I love movies. I also don't care for subtext, I prefer to get lost in a movie. This was a great thrill and I'll definitely watch it again. It's not 5-stars or enough to actually buy, but it deserves no less than 4.
Exciting -- This is for cycling what Fast and Furious is for driving Exciting fast-paced film. *This is for cycling what Fast and Furious is for driving.* Great video sequences including time-based flashbacks, Google Earth-like building imagery, etc. At intersections, it showed the best visual presentation of the driving strategy Identify-Predict-Decide-Execute. Plot and character development was a little light, but this wasn't meant to be a Nicholas Sparks romance story.
Too many flashbacks???? Completely lost my interest, so much so that I stopped watching. This movie, in my mind, was so very confusing when it constantly went into what it appears to be flashbacks and I couldn't make heads or tails the going on's, and the storyline.
Glad I watched I dragged my feet to finally watch this movie, and I wish I had seen this is Theaters!!! This was such a good movie; storyline was basic, however, the acting, and scenes flowed really well. This movie will keep you interested!!! Definately an original type of movie.
Cycle rushing I real find the best parts of the movie perticuelerly when whille is tested through is diseshion when he tested through time that gives him a choice when his time slows down to make the most important timing on what way to find a place in his own present moment to make the best diseshion to helping those who are needed in most matters of his own timing on the right path
Good enough to rent not buy. Saw it in the Theaters. It was a action and suspense movie. I my opinion the acting was good but lacked the non-stop that I am used to. Do not get me wrong. I eenjoyed the movie, just not enough to own it.
good movie this film was something different from all the other titles im use to. i think it was a really good storyline. i would recommend this as a rent though just to watch nothing fancy that makes me want the blu-ray for my collection. overall good decent movie.
Lightweight but fun Set in the hurly burly world of Manhattan bike messengering. The plot and acting are just adequate for linking up the rather exciting bicycle chase scenes. Shot on location with excellent attention to detail with some tasty bits of CGI mixed in.
One of my faves... As a cycling enthusiasts i love this movie. They really capture tge love of riding in the main character very well. It is packed with plenty of action so you won't get bored with dialouge.
