Clive Owen is one of the most intense actors that are currently on our screens. His role in the made for TV movie "The Cyclist" or "Split Second", whatever it is called, is like his second skin. I don't want to say too much about the plot as that would spoil it for the viewer - suffice to say that it is the story of a man under pressure on all sides and what could happen if a random incident triggers off a reaction that will blow his life apart and change his world completely. Clive Owen is superb whether he is playing a detective losing his sight, a con man's son working as a croupier or the driver of the cars in the varied BMW Movie series on the internet - in my humble opinion he is the tops!
