Pirelli Mission Zero


Shades of Kill Bill in this ‘poster’ for the Pirelli online film Mission Zero.

The combination of Uma Thurman and the colour yellow is practically a mnemonic device.

Sadly the five minute film has none of the cleverness we’ve come to expect from Tarantino. I don't think that's the fault of director Kathryn Bigelow though.

This is definitely not in the same league as any of the BMW Films, although I’m pretty sure it would like to be.

Nope. This is standard car chase fare, with Uma behind the wheel of a yellow Lamborghini.

The payoff is unexpected. But it’s also a serious let down.

I won’t go and spoil it for you. Click here and watch Uma smoulder in Mission Zero.
