Alice Reese: Premium Rush like a Disappointing MacGyver Episode

It’s not the best follow-Up for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is coming off a strong performance in The Dark Knight Rises.

According to our local movie critic Alice Reese, the story behind Premium Rush doesn’t cut it. Levitt plays a bicycle messenger who is chased around New York City by a dirty cop who wants an envelope the messenger has.

It’s a disappointing assessment for director David Koepp, who has built a strong reputation for his work on such blockbuster Hollywood films like Jurassic Park, Mission Impossible and Spider-Man.

Alice also offers her opinion of Sparkle, starring Jordan Sparks and the late Whitney Houston, who died roughly four months after production. Of note, Sparks only sings once – at the end.

And Reese’s thoughts on Two days in New York can also be heard above.
