Can 7 minutes be more entertaining?
21 May 2003 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

"STAR" is the most entertaining film of the great BMW film series. The ironic wit is great and the race through the city is superbly well done - everything fits here: the cinematography, the editing, the great music by Blur, the actors and of course the BMW M5 who gives the best performance of them all!

Enjoy this ride - you won't be disappointed!

10/10
