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 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…
