Premium Rush

Like its 1986 predecessor, "Quicksilver," 2012's "Premium Rush"  deals with the fast-paced world of bike messengers in Manhattan. "Quicksilver" at least had Kevin Bacon. Neither film will make you want to be a bike messenger in Manhattan. It is interesting, though, to see just how tough bikes, and their riders, can be, at least when there are Hollywood stuntmen involved. Mark this one "Professional riders only; do not attempt."<br><br>
