    Sometimes a film is 100 per cent entertainment…That is definitely the case with “Premium Rush” written and directed by David Koepp (writer of “Spiderman” & “Mission Impossible” etc).

    What if you had the chance to meet the people who created you…And by you…I mean the human race. Could you resist such an opportunity?
