Did You Know?


Luc, a professional assassin, kills 3 men early in the film. Like all good killers she wore a pair of plastic surgical gloves for the occasion. The problem is after the shooting is over she proceeds to remove the gloves and leave them behind as she escapes via a nearby fire exit - leaving a perfectly good set of finger prints on the door knob.

Make a contract out for the filmmakers!
23 November 2009 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

First, I should point out that I have nothing against low budget movies. In fact, I watch them all the time. I've found that a low budget movie can overcome its financial limitations with stuff like ambition and careful planning.

"The Contract" is a low budget movie, but it's more than that. It happens to be a BAD low budget movie. It fails in just about every way you can think of. Take the production values, for example. There's a weird made-for-TV feeling throughout. (Make that a weird made-for-Canadian-TV feeling, which is even worse.) Throughout, it looks like there was little to no effort to spruce up the locations - it seems that they set up the camera, shot the scene, and packed up in less than an hour.

The action scenes are just as bad. The awkward use of slow motion is used throughout to try and spice them up, but it just makes the scenes more clunky to the eye. There is no additional effort in trying to make the shooting and hand-to-hand combat scenes exciting, it's just point and shoot by the camera.

The script has a number of questionable aspects to it, ranging from the protagonists killing relatively innocent people to the heroine's boyfriend committing actions either dumb or unbelievable.

I could go on for some time pointing out the flaws of this movie, such as the songs on the soundtrack being some of the WORST songs I've listened to in an action film. But the worst thing about the movie is that it's not an entertaining mess. All this ineptness is made to be incredibly dull and boring. I had to pause the movie several times while watching it because I was finding it unbearable to watch. There is no reason I can think of to see this movie.
