About the Movie
A heart-stopping chase ... The ultimate test of courage. Kevin Bacon is pedaling for all he's worth as a bicycle messenger on a collision course with danger in Quicksilver. As he darts through the city traffic, making his rounds in the fast-paced world of maverick messengers, Jack Chasey (Bacon) uncovers a sinister web of murder and intrigue. When he falls for Terri (Jami Gertz), a fellow messenger who has become the pawn of an unscrupulous drug dealer, it's up to Jack to act quickly. Speeding toward the final - and deadly - showdown, it's a heart-stopping chase and the ultimate test of Jack's courage. Set to the driving beat of a dynamic soundtrack featuring Roger Daltrey, the pulse of urban America comes alive in a story with more twists and turns than a rush-hour shortcut. When it comes close to the free-wheeling exhilaration of Quicksilver.
A Pretty Awesome Bike Movie...For the 80's
I enjoyed this movie, as a casual bicycle enthusiast, and with a free Sunday night. There aren't a lot of movies with bicycles center stage and there are a lot of cool retro-bikes featured, with a decent story line by a pretty good actor. It's a neat exploitation of bicycle messenger culture in the 80's, paired with an interesting stock-broker story which leads to a likable and somewhat believable main character. I would say, if you like your bikes, and you like original movies with some popcorn on the side, don't hesitate to rent! If you ARE a messenger, don't you have to buy this movie by law?
best movie of all time!!!!grate kevin bacon movie
