Go See: Premium Rush

If you enjoy action, NYC and some key actors such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jamie Chung, Dania Ramirez and "Boardwalk Empire's" Michael Shannon (who does such a good job playing evil characters), then you'll enjoy "Premium Rush".  You may seriously never want to be a bike messenger after seeing this flick, too.  But hey, did you ever think you could do that anyway?  This film was directed by David Koepp, who co-wrote this flick with John Kamps.  Koepp seems to have the experience with action as he also wrote the first Tom Cruise version of "Mission Impossible", "Spider-man" and "Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull".

I gots to give my shout out to my fellow asian actors and wanted to give props to Jamie Chung, who, btw, I got the opportunity to interview last weekend at "Audrey's Night Out".  If you know anything about her, you would know she started off on one of "The Real World" seasons, then went on to become quite successful landing roles in films such as "Sucker Punch", "The Hangover 2" and the soon-to-be released, "The Man With The Iron Fists" to be directed by RZA.  Other notable factoids: did the character Raj look familiar?  Well, that's because you might recall seeing Aasif Mandvi in "Ghost Town" with Ricky Gervais, "The Last Airbender" and "The Dictator".  And Wole Parks, who played Marco, was a soap opera star playing Dallas Griffin on "As The World Turns".

So, go see it - it's a fun ride.  Okay, I just couldn't resist!
