Explosive Full Trailer for Jo Beom-goo’s South Korean Action Flick Quick

2 Comments

As a fan of pretty people, fast motorcycles, and explosions, I wholeheartedly approve of the trailer for director Jo Beom-goo’s upcoming action extravaganza “Quick”. The movie looks like an insane amount of fun, particularly if you’re counted amongst those who don’t mind a little empty-headedness from their action cinema. The film opens this July in South Korea, though I’m hoping an English-subtitled DVD of some sort makes its presence known to the world before the end of the year. I don’t think that’s asking for too much, though if you feel otherwise, I’m sure you’ll let me know about it.

Before proceeding, allow me to set the stage:

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.

Ready? Of course you are! The embedded trailer awaits your attention.
