John Woo’s Short Film ‘Hostage’

I’d never heard of this before I’m now going to watch (and post) all of these short films which were part of a series called ‘The Hire’ from BMW which were released online in 2001 and 2002.

They were directed by popular filmmakers from around the globe and starred Clive Owen as “the Driver” while highlighting the performance aspects of various BMW automobiles.

This one entitled ‘Hostage’ was directed by John Woo and produced by Ridley and Tony Scott.

The score is cool too but that’s no surprise as it comes from action maestro Steve Jablonsky.

 

 

Woo’s trademark style is obvious from the start but also it really should have been Clive Owen’s audition to be James Bond; he would have been spot on but sadly it wasn’t meant to be. I miss John Woo from Hollywood but at least we have his upcoming ‘Manhunt’ remake which promises a return to his classic action form.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
