All pedals, no plot
The permanent high provided by riding his fixie (no brakes, no gears, no stopping) bike on courier runs through Manhattan is Wilee’s (Gordon-Levitt) idea of the good life. When bad cop Bobby (Shannon) joins the fray to hijack a lucrative package, Wilee and his mates must step up their game. They do, of course, and fast and crazy times ensue. There’s room for a bit of plot, but it’s mostly just frantic pedalling. Koepp and his crew give us a good ride for the money though.
