Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Premium Rush is an exhilarating thriller filled with bone-crunching bike-and-car chases and crashes and a few physical confrontations (some with firearms involved). Bike messengers (including one played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) weave in and out of traffic at a dangerous, sometimes cringe-inducing pace. So you can expect plenty of accident scenes, including one that shows a man falling under the wheels of an oncoming vehicle. There's also some swearing (one "f--k," plus "s--t," "a--hole," etc.) and a bit of kissing/flirting and social drinking.
Kissing, flirting, and some sexual innuendo.
Lots of peril/tense scenes as bike messengers navigate New York's dangerous streets, darting through cars and trucks at full speed. They're frequently at risk, and they have bad -- sometimes deadly -- crashes (one scene shows someone falling under a vehicle's wheels). A man with a bad temper strikes without hesitation without provocation. He's shown beating someone up, causing the man's death. Another man shoots someone point blank.
Strong language includes one use of "f--k," plus many uses of "s--t," "p---y," "damn," "bitch," "douchebag," "a--hole," "hell," "goddamn," "oh my God," and more. A guy gives another the finger.
You can't hesitate: When someone's in trouble, you do what you can for people in need.
Brands/logos are seen everywhere as bikes whiz through New York City: Chase Bank, Rite-Aid, Amalgamated Bank, and more.

Some social drinking in bars among adult co-workers.
