Saw the movie this afternoon and enjoyed it. Bike stunts were awesome. Story was okay - just an good excuse for all those bike stunts/racing.

I've heard reviews both good and bad, but all agreed that the action was heart pounding. Sounds like a movie that should be seen on the big screen rather than on DVD.

Looks like an edge of the seat, action-packed movie!

Hubby and I did see it. It is full of action. crazy riding fast in and out of NYC traffic and he made a point of not having any brakes - I understand that since my hub has had a couple of bike oops from going over the bike using brakes too hard too quickly... He peddled backwards to slow down. It is a good story and like I said full of action. Makes you understand why people don't like bikes on the roads. I liked it and when my hub rode his bike to work today he said - I better wear my helmet after watching the movie, lol!

It's not too often a prime time movie featuring cycling comes along. This looks like it could be a fun romp. Anybody out there see it yet? Thoughts?

Here's a few reviews, which are mostly positive:
