| As A Kid, I Liked It
When I first saw this film in the theater, I really liked it. I rode my bike to work all the time and seeing a film where people rode their bikes for a living was really cool.

Now, as an adult who works as a bike messenger in Honolulu, I still enjoy this film, though there are some downsides I see in it that I didn't see as a teenager.

The worst part of the film is the fact that all the bike messengers at Quicksilver are losers of some kind. One used to work for the mayor, former college professors, a former stock broker, etc All losers for whom the job is just something to fall back on after they failed at their life's pursuit. All looking to get out ASAP.

Some messengers may have gotten into it after failing at something else. But most get into it for the money, excitement and the daily rush of adrenaline.

I wish the movie had shown more adrenaline junkies and fewer losers.
