BMW Short Film: Beat The Devil

With the rather awesome news that The Driver (Clive Owen) is set to return in a new BMW short film directed by Neill Blomkamp entitled THE ESCAPE very soon I thought now would be the perfect time to revisit the original BMW short films.

You’ll remember a few weeks ago I posted the John Woo directed short called The Hire so today I thought I would post the bizarre Tony Scott film Beat The Devil. It tells the story of James Brown making a deal with the Devil (Gary Oldman) in order to stay young. The Devil agrees to a race between Brown’s Driver and his own (Danny Trejo) and this is a game that is played for keeps.

 

This has Tony Scott’s trademark kinetic energy which frankly I find a little annoying in this film but it’s still cool.

The Escape will debut on BMWFilms.com on October 23rd at 6:00 p.m.

Am I the only person who thinks The Driver deserves his own set of feature length films? Here’s a nice twist; how about we make him Frank Martin’s long lost brother in the next Transporter film and we have Owen and Statham face off once again? I’d watch it…

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.
