I should preface this article by saying that I own both “Torque” and “Biker Boyz” on DVD. Is that bad? It probably is. Regardless of my wonky taste in cinema, I still think that the big-budget South Korean actioner “Quick” is going to be a blast. If this 30-second teaser is any indication of things to come, you can expect more of the following: fast motorcycles, a metric ton of explosions, mind-blowing stunt work, and tiny skirts blowing in the wind. It’s pretty badass, especially if you own “Torque” and “Biker Boyz” on DVD. Heh.
Before investigating the clip, check out this synopsis:
A former motorcycle gang member, Ki-su, makes a living as a bike messenger. One day after making a delivery to an office building, he witnesses the building blow up. Never suspecting he could have anything to do with the bomb, he moves onto his next job—which is escorting a girl group singer, A-rom, to a TV station. A-rom, it turns out, is an ex-girlfriend from his biker days, and she’s none too thrilled to see him either. As she puts a proffered helmet on her head, a timer mechanism is triggered and a countdown clock appears. Ki-su gets a call from a stranger telling him that the helmet is booby-trapped and will blow up if he fails to make a series of deliveries the stranger demands within a fixed time limit. Ki-su manages to make the deliveries, but each turns out to be a bomb. With the police hot on his trail, he races to complete his last mission and stop the timer on the helmet.
