A hilarious and gripping action movie of the highest standard, 23 December 2011
Author: kluseba from Gatineau, Canada

This movie from South Korea is easily one of the best movies of the year 2011 and I hope it gets further attention and a world wide release in the rest of the world within the next month. It's sure that I will try anything to purchase a copy of this stunning movie that I saw by pure coincidence on a plane flight a few days ago.

The movie tells the story of a motorcycle courier that gets in a dangerous situation when a madman forces him to deliver a couple of bombs to several addresses. If he refuses, he risks the life of his old love that wears a motorcycle helmet that will explode if the courier arrives to late, menaces the madman or gets involved with the police. The whole scenario leads to a stunning rat race with a furious and emotional showdown involving philosophical topics such as life, death, love, friendship, forgiveness, truth and lies.

This entertaining movie offers many different styles. First of all, it has some great slapstick humour that made me laugh really hard a couple of times. It's rather hard to make me laugh but I really appreciate this kind of humour thanks to many amusing characters and a very good acting.

As a next point, this movie has some spectacular motorcycle action scenes reminding me of "The fast and the furious", "Speed" or "Twelve rounds". This movie doesn't give you a break and is an exciting high speed adventure.

This film even has more to offer as there are some great suspense scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat and the story offers a couple of interesting elements and introduces some interesting connections between the different characters of the movie.

In the end, let's note that the movie is filmed in a very modern way and is a true high quality product that might please to a large audience in the world. Anybody that likes spectacular action movies has found his or her new bible with this movie.

On a personal note, I fell once again in love with the charming and cute female actors from South Korea in this movie and the authentic male characters.

If you're able to get your hands on a copy of this movie, pay the price you need to pay and you surely won't disappointed. The movie is energizing, fresh and highly entertaining. South Korea proves once again that they actually make the best movies in the whole world and they do succeed in any genre as they prove with this outstanding action flick.
