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.
