    The 5th movie of 8 from the bmwfilm.com collection. Clive Owen who is right up there with John Wayne as far as acting is concern, is transporting and protecting a Asian child, upon delivery to a monk, something just isn't right the monk is wearing cowboy boots. Film has typical chase scene with a model of BMW being the best car that takes bullets and hits with no damage. Still 3/12 stars for this ten minute short.

    The first time I saw this I really didn't like it... second time around, loved it... it's greatness is subtle: the dance of the cars to classical music and the too-cute ending actually works quite well...

    Stylish, just not the most compelling of The Hire shorts.

    Heavy-handed, unbalanced, inconsistent - Ang Lee's usual directing flaws show up in this humorous and spiritual, but not humorous or spiritual ENOUGH episode of "The Hire". Even Clive Owen seems a little out of his element. The weakest of the series with poor writing, although it does have a very cute and whimsical car chase.

    Ang Lee's The Chosen (from BMW commercial collection The Hire) is a beautiful and spiritual journey. It's main story is simple well-told, but the real force is the ballet-like choreography in the chase scenes.

    This particular short was ok, but the series seriously rocked for those lucky enough to get the free discs from the BMW dealerships.

    A short commercial ad directed by Ang Lee for BMW. It's one of those pieces that manages to elicit beauty from chaos, at least in its first half.

    The Ang Lee episode was definitely one of the weaker shorts in this relatively strong series.
