Image Entertainment and RLJ Entertainment will release the 1986 Kevin Bacon drama Quicksilver on Blu-ray on August 6,
2013. The thriller also stars Jami Gertz and Paul Rodriguez and was written and directed by
Thomas Michael Donnelly. Quicksilver will be available for an SRP of $17.97.
Jack Casey (Kevin Bacon, TV's The Following) is pedaling for all he's worth as a
bicycle messenger on a collision course with danger. As he darts through the city traffic, making
his rounds in the fast-paced world of maverick messengers, Jack uncovers a sinister web of
murder and intrigue. When he falls for Terri (Jami Gertz, Twister), a fellow
messenger who has become a 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 The
Who's Roger Daltrey, the pulse of urban America comes alive in a story with more twists and
turns than a rush-hour shortcut.
Finally!! My prayers have been answered!! Thank you, Image Entertainment, for announcing this awesome movie!! One of my favorite Kevin Bacon films!! I can now retire the DVD come August 6!! Day one for me.
Right up there with "Roadhouse" and "Cocktail"... whatever the hell those were. So, yes, you must own this, if for no other reason than to remind yourselves repeatedly just how awful the 80's were (and 'cause Kevin Bacon is dreamy).
You think the 80's were awful, but that's YOUR opinion. It was the best era for the action movie genre for sure, and some pretty damn good other movies too......including the 2nd and 3rd entries in the original Star Wars trilogy, and the original Indiana Jones trilogy.
What do we get now? Let's see, one CGI superhero movie after another CGI superhero movie starring forgettable actors in forgettable plots. Oh, and "BRAAAM" musical scores instead of memorable melodies.
