10 points to Hire-series
29 November 2005 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

I like the whole Hire series short movies, but The Star is definitely one of the bests of Hire-series. Lot of funny moments, good soundtrack and Guy Ritchie's style makes this short action-speeding film so enjoyable.

Cliwe Owen is playing driver(like in every other Hire movies) who has to take the arrogant star(played by Madonna) to the destination point and lose the followers. And all this speeding through the city ends with very funny gag-line.

I give 10 points to The Star like the whole Hire series.

10/10
