Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a days work for Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the best of New Yorks agile and aggressive bicycle messengers. It takes a special breed to ride the fixie - super lightweight, single-gear bikes with no brakes and riders who are equal part skilled cyclists and nutcases who risk becoming a smear on the pavement every time they head into traffic.
But a guy whos used to putting his life on the line is about to get more than even he is used to when his last envelope of the day - a routine premium rush run - turns into a life or death chase through the streetsof Manhattan. Also starring Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung.
