Quicksilver Reviews:

"Some Spoilers" Jack Casey, Kevin Bacon, is a successful stock trader at the San Francisco stock exchange. One day thinking that a certain stock will be heavily traded, and to the up side, Jack puts everything that he has on it including his parents life savings. The stock was traded heavily all right, heavily down. In one day Jack lost everything that he made in the last three years as a whiz child in the stock market: $30,000,000.00 as well as his fathers and mothers life saving.Devastated over what he lost his father Mr. Casey, Gerald O'Loughin, in trying to comfort him, says Jack to hold his chin up and tells "We Casey's can take a punch". Soon when Jack go outside to receive a cab he sees that he left his wallet back in the house and when he quietly goes in to receive it he sees his father sitting by the kitchen table with his head in his arms sobbing,that was the first time that Jack ever saw his father cry. Getting a job as a bicycle messenger at "Quicksilver Messenger Service" Jack begins from the bottom to work himself up. Working there Jack really begins to play the job and the folks that he's working with better then the items shirts that he used to work with at the stock exchange and develops a number of close friendships there: Hector, Paul Rodriguez, Voodoo, Laurence Fishburne, and Terri, Jami Gertz.Though the cash that Jack makes as a messenger is minuscule to what he made in the stock store he really likes and is very satisfied with his job and his fresh found mates there at the messenger service. Like the telling goes :"Money can't purchase you happiness". Jack's fellow bicycle messenger Hector wants to receive a bank lone so he can launch up a meal stand business but the banks won't give him one because he doesn't any collateral to cover it. Knowing that Jack was a "Market Mavin" Hector entrusts him with what tiny cash that he has to invest and create a profit with it. Jack hesitant at first, because of what happened to him in the market, then goes along with Hector's concept because Hector says him that if he loses his cash he wont keep it vs him. It's that Jack's expertise is the only method that Hector can receive the money that he needs outside of going to the local Mexican loan-sharks who would break his head if he couldn't pay them back the cash with interest that they loaned him. Jack's old touch in picking winners in the stock store comes back. Jack puts Hectors cash in the stocks that he thinks that will click and they do and Jack rolls up more that what Hector would need in profits to launch up the business that he was everytime dreaming about. Voodoo everytime seems to have far more cash then any of the messengers create at the job because Voodoo works for Gypsy ,Rudy Ramos, delivering drugs for him while he doing his job at the messenger service. One day Voodoo says Gypsy that he's had it with delivering his "goods" and wants out of the drug business and is going to stop working for him. A several days soon when Jack and Voodoo engage in a bicycle race Gypsy, who was waiting to ambush him, saw his possibility to hold Voodoo quiet about his drug dealing for good. It's then that Gypsy runs down Voodoo with his vehicle and kills him on the deserted San Francisco waterfront to not only hold Voodoo from quiting but from letting out the storyline that Gypsy is using messengers to deal drugs.Terri is a very sweet but naive woman who Gypsy got to work delivering drugs for him after he paid her bill at a diner when she didn't have the cash for her meal. Terri, like Voodoo, after realizing what she was doing and how risky it was, wanted out of Gypsy's drug dealing racket. Gypsy couldn't allow Terri go because like Voodoo she was risky to him when he couldn't have any control of her and felt threatened by her quiting him. With Gyspy going all out to test to kidnapped or even slay to hold Terri quiet she runs to Jack's zone to receive away and hide from Gypsy. Jack having Terri secure in his apartment gets on his bicycle and goes outside to finish the race that he had with Voodoo that Gypsy so rudely interrupted earlier in the movie; but this time the ending to that race will be far more different.Nice tiny film about someone going from riches to rags and back to riches again. The storyline may be a bit uneven but it's simple to overlook and play the film. The "Quicksilver" musical score alone is well worth the price of admission or in this situation the price of rental.


I liked quicksilver and still do today after 20 years of its release date. Instead of looking at Quicksilver as a bunch of losers who ran a bike, I appreciated the kevin Bacon part as a hero who suffered from a severe setback, and found in cycling a method to overcome depression and become a loser. The initial stage where he goes on a taxi and paid the taxi driver to race a bicycle courier, present how fascinated he was by this "alternative life", representing more freedom, athletic performance, and no ties to an office or a company organization. For me this was the main interest of Quicksilver, besides its music, which is quite good.As a negative point, I regret that none of the characters, followed a various path to its life, as a effect of the quicksilver experience, and in fact they all dream of having a regular job, making more money, etc. In fact the script is light, trying to please a huge audience, and I think the film was reasonably successful at the time it was released. I suggest viewing it or purchasing the DVD.


To be honest, it's some years since I saw this movie, so have forgotten most of the storyline details. However, the movie actually seems rather obscure and apparently not very well regarded, so I wanted to place in my two cents worth of praise for a film that, while it may not have been memorable, was certainly entertaining at the time. The storyline revolves around a hot shot stock store whiz child called Jack Casey, who loses not only his own money, but also all his parents' life savings in a failed store deal / stock crash. Devastated by his failure, especially the result it has on his father, he withdraws fully from the financial world, embarking upon a fresh career as a bike messenger. I enjoyed the unusual theme here, the disillusioned stock broker reverting to a simpler and (supposedly) more carefree lifestyle. Jack befriends his fellow messengers, including a guy, Voodoo, who's involved with delivering the goods for a sleazy drug dealer, and also a woman called Terri, who of course becomes the love interest. Jack and Voodoo plan a bicycle race, but there's problem brewing from the drug dealer...Other plot details? I don't recall them, but Kevin Bacon is adept in the role of Jack, the storyline catchy enough, and the theme regarding the fleeting nature of wealth everytime relevant, particularly as similar to the stock market. Also, although I'm not personally a cyclist, I quite enjoyed the dashing bike sequences, up and down and across the sometimes hilly streets, of (I believe) San Francisco. Don't listen to the naysayers, it's a perfectly entertaining method to spend a couple of hours, and not just for the 1980's nostalgia.
