Now, 6 years later, Ki-Soo works as a motorcycle delivery man, Myung-Sik is a motorcycle cop, and Ah-Rom is a member of pop idol group. One day, Ki-Soo has Ah-Rom riding on the back of his motorcycle as he makes a delivery. To his surprise the delivered package explodes as he leaves the building. Ki-Soo’s cellphone rings and he hears a voice telling him that their is another bomb planted in his helmet which Ah-Rom is wearing. Ki-Soo is ordered to take another delivery. If the delivery is late or he attempts to run away the helmet will explode …

Musings: WOAH! In the first five minutes of the movie, there are some serious motorcycle stunts and BAM!! Explosions and car crashes!!

The premise of a mysterious voice on the phone has been done before. I kept thinking of the movie Speed as I watched this. You can’t help love a movie that is full of action and suspense from the beginning to end. A smart movie watcher will realize real fast that all this is happening as a result of the events that happened 6 years ago (the HUGE crash). But that will definitely not stop you from watching this as the story is unraveled as well as the relationship between the three main characters.

As Ki-Soo and Ah-Rom are racing from place to place, on a mission to save themselves, you as the viewer, are racing with them. There are some scenes that were filmed from the perspective of the rider! They are moving, quick and definitely at high speed. Loved every minute of this! A lot of action! A LOT!

As this is an action movie, the actors go along well with the action. I LOVE Lee Min Ki in action! He was great in this! This was the second time seeing Gang Ye-Won in anything (first being The Thousandth Man), she is a good comedic actress. Kim In-Kwon was so ditzy and cute as Myung-Sik. You forgot sometimes that he was actually a cop! If you can’t enjoy action, just enjoy watching Lee Min Ki in black leather and sunglasses! That’s all you need!!

Trailer is available on on YouTube Website only. The movie is available on several sites. Ask me if your interested. Also available on Netflix if you are a subscriber.

I’m available on Twitter. Thanks to all of you Twinkles out here who are taking the time to read! If you have a suggestion for a future review, just leave me a comment! I’m always happy to have movie suggestions.

  1. So you say Lee Min Ki, of course I’m going to watch it. It’s Lee Min Ki, duh!

    Loved this movie, it was a fun ride ( didn’t like the American remake, sorry Joseph Gordon -Levy you know I love you but no bueno señor )

    Plus home girl from The Thousandth Man was in it so it made it a little memory down Kdramaland lane( btw she needs to be in more shows, movies, etc cuz she is awesome).

    I absolutely love Lee Min Ki . He is like to me the Korean Johnny Depp( totally lives, breathes and owns whatever character he plays, he is just that good). Plus his face fascinates me, like he can be so smokin Hawt then turn smexy but suddenly be so cute like a puppy. Aww XD!!!

    Like I said It’s LEE MIN KI DUH!

    1. I have to say, I love his movies! Even though his SUFBB role was so short, that still is my favorite! And he was SMOKING in leather!!

  2. KDA,
    This movie was a lot of fun. I think it was over the top but still a load of dayum’s you see that. At the end they showed the stunts and my God they must have run out of people, everyone got messed up even the leads. I like LMK he is one of my favorite male actors, plus he got to kiss Eugene one lucky dude, bad job but someone has to do it LOL. You did good Lady!!!! 🙂

  3. Lee Min Ki definitely brings his own flavor to any role he takes. Thanks for another great review! I’ll have to add this to my ever-growing list of Kmovies to watch. 😉
