Aaron's Backstage Pass: Quick Film Review
I just recently watched a very interesting film on Blu-ray called “Quick.” It is a Korean film that features nonstop action and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The film is about a former motorcycle gang member named Gi-su, who is now working as a bike messenger. On one of his deliveries he has to escort a pop star to a TV station for an interview. When she puts on her motorcycle helmet a timer mechanism is activated and a timer starts to count down. Gi-su then gets a call saying that the helmet contains a bomb and he must make several deliveries in a certain amount of time or the bomb will go off. Eventually the police start to chase Gi-su and he must stay ahead of them while making the deliveries. There are a ton of explosions and a lot of close calls.
I really thought the story was good and it made you wonder who was behind the terroristic attacks. You also learn why everything is happening in the film with a backstory and it makes sense.
The movie is in Korean, but you can turn on English subtitles and an English dub, so you don’t have to read the entire time.
There are bunch of extras and they are really fun to watch. There are featurettes that show how the movie was made and how the stunts were performed. These were very interesting and I really enjoyed them. The only bad thing is that the people are speaking Korean and you don’t really know what they are saying.
Overall, I really liked “Quick.” I was entertained by it and I really liked all of the action and suspense. There is nothing I did not like about the film. I think a lot of people will find “Quick” entertaining and I would highly recommend it.
