QUICK TAKE:
Action: A NYC bike courier must deal with various obstacles, including a corrupt cop, while attempting to deliver a package across Manhattan.
PLOT:
Wilee (JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT) is a bike courier who works the busy streets of Manhattan delivering packages for clients who need that done quickly. Riding a bike with no gears or brakes, he's good at what he does, although he has to compete with the likes of Manny (WOLE PARKS) for jobs from Raj (AASIF MANDVI), their dispatcher.

His latest delivery is handed to him by office worker Nima (JAMIE CHUNG), a young woman who's just told her roommate, Vanessa (DANIA RAMIREZ), that she needs to move out. That's something Wilee finds briefly interesting as Vanessa has just broken up with him.

But Wilee has more things to be concerned about, including a NYC bike cop who's after him, as well as a man who's quite desperate to get his hands on Nima's delivery envelope. That turns out to be crooked NYC cop Bobby Monday (MICHAEL SHANNON) who needs what's in the package in order to deal with his mounting gambling debts.

As the time counts down toward his delivery deadline, Wilee tries to figure out what's going on and then avoid Monday and the bike cop who are determined to catch him, all while hoping to make amends with Vanessa.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those who are fans of anyone in the cast, of chase-based action flicks and/or who are into biking might have some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some violence, intense action sequences and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
