    Oh I will most definitely be wathcing this movie. It stars my two favourite things: Bikes and Joseph Gordon-Levitt! Just try and stop me.

    Maybe, If there is nothing much else on, perhaps the trailer does not do the film justice or maybe I just watched the film in the trailer!

    Yes, I think I will go to see it as I really enjoy pacey action movies and that’s what this looks like. Trouble is trailers often contain the best bits and give most of the story away, which seems to be the case here!

    Must say the trailer had my adrenalin going.
    I am not a courier, I don’t jump reds or cut up traffic nor pedestrians, but TBH I stopped judging other cyclists recently even if they do so, because after commuting in London you realise cars are, after all, the number one reason we have traffic lights and pollution (air and noise).
    So I am more willing to forgive a cyclist than a car driver for acts of random madness.

    To answer your question, YES I will go and see the film.

    No. Looks absolutely abysmal.

    I think I have an important appointment with something far more interesting that night….

    …like watching paint dry. Looks like a big pile of steaming richards

    Lots of film of NYC, a bit of drama, and possibly an answer to why people think bikes without gears or brakes are so cool? Yes, I’ll watch it on Lovefilm or DVD. Let’s face it, it won’t get to many cinemas.

    This is a rip off of the French movie “2 Seconds” or “Deux Secondes” in French about a female bicycle messenger which takes place in Quebec Canada. It was one of my favorite movies. I highly recommend it. The movie is in English. On DVD.Made in 1998.

    Steve again-re movie Deux Secondes. I made a mistake. The movie takes place in Montreal Canada, not Quebec. And the actress is Charlotte Laurier.

    It just made me think of Streetwise, transplanted to New York and turned up a few notches.

    Oh crap. While I have a lot of respect for skilled fixie riders, this will just bring the fashionistas out in full force.
