The world of bicycle messengers takes a special breed – especially in New York City. Having to dodge speeding cars, crazy cab drivers, and eight million bitchy pedestrians in an effort to get a package delived on time is all in a day’s work for Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Riding the super lightweight, single-gear bikes with no brakes is all part of the job for these thrill-seeking pedalists.
If his job isn’t already risky enough, Wilee faces the adventure of his life when a routine delivery turns into a life or death situation. It all starts of with the customer telling him, “It must be there by 7 O’clock… It’s extremely important.” Of course he doesn’t know what’s in the package or what he’s getting into, but time is definitely of the essence. Sure he risks getting killed in traffic every time he goes to work, but this time… someone is actually trying to kill him.
I love me a thriller and this movie looks like it’s definitely going to give me my fix. Sidenote: Joseph Gordon-Levitt sure is keeping himself busy these days. He’s come a long way since 3rd Rock From The Sun! Check out the trailer below. The film comes out January 13th, 2012.
