Product Description

After blowing a big time heist, thug-for-hire Law, must resume his day job as a shady San Francisco tour guide. Before he knows it, Law and his unsuspecting group of tourists are in a race against time to recover a tape that will recue the politically unstable country of Uruvia. Filled with quirky characters, madcap comedy and hard-hitting martial arts comes the most fun movie since Rumble in the Bronx!


Eric Jacobus and his team have done a remarkable job creating a highly enjoyable action-comedy. It keeps the chuckles coming at a regular rate and produces a few laugh out loud moments. heavily influenced by the Hong Kong action films of the eighties, particularly the works of Sammo Hung, the choreography is intricate, crisp and performed at lightning fast speed. The fighting is fluid, varied, exciting and better than virtually anything to come out of Hong Kong in the last ten years. Contour is a well paced, fun film where you can feel the filmmakers enthusiasm and energy coming through. I recommend you catch The Stunt People on their way up because they're going to be big one day. --Mike Banner, Dragons Den

The action in this film is nothing short of amazing. It was made on a shoestring budget by an incredible group of tireless kung fu fanatics, and the quantity and quality of fight sequences they were able to put together here is truly astounding. Buy it now!. --Mhat Bernstein, HK Flix

I can't remember a Independent action film being this incredible in a very long time... the fights and camera work go where not even a big budget film has gone in some time. There's some incredible fights here that are realistic and brutal. This movie is loaded and packed with zany characters and comedy as well as energetic fight scenes that are reminiscent of classic Kung Fu films. This is a must own for any Martial Arts fan or fan's of action in general. Contour is one hell of a fun ride that never stops entertaining. --Patrick Ricketts, Video Views

Does you like soup????? Does you like fight?????

Over the past few years, a category of filmmaking has come about referred to often as 'zero budget filmmaking.' I don't know if there are rules to how much (or little) you can spend and still make this category. I have seen them called 'zero budget' up to about $15k. Drama films have been easy to come by in this category, as they don't have to cost too much to make. And with the introduction of the great movie, Primer (done for $7k), sci fi film had its voice. But no one had tried the action film at a high level.....

Enter the Stunt People. A group of stunt persons and fight choreographers located in California that make short films in their spare time and post them online. Contour represents their first broad release full length movie attempt. And what an attempt it is!!!!

The acting is bad, but has its own charm. The director wrote in part for the actors based on things they do/say in real life. And it comes off funny. There are good laughs, both intentional, and not so intentional. I personally like fighters who can't act, but don't try to hard either. Nothing ruins a film more than to have the lead role who is a great action star look into the camera and say 'we have to save the president!' and not have a clue how he is supposed to act. It ruins it for me.

But the fights..... wow the fights.... largely Hapkido, with some Wushu and Escrima mixed in, the fights are amazing. They are literally beating the crap out of each other. I think they said their philosophy was 'hit at 50%, react to the hit at 200%.' There is a lot of chop shot, but with excellent editing, and three respectable long shots during the film. It's really hard to pick a favorite fight amongst them.

I cannot even begin to express how awesome this movie is. If you're a fan of Hong Kong cinema's glory days (commonly referred to as the 80s) then this movie is worth every penny.

The fight scenes and stunts are amazing and it's hard to believe that these guys aren't industry professionals. The action builds until the films 20 MINUTE FINALE which features four fights going at the same time.

The acting isn't exactly oscar worthy but the performances get the message across. Contour has a generally fun loving tone to it and the comedy ensures that the movie never gets too heavy. It's kinda like a good Jackie Chan movie in that it's exciting but still light and entertaining. There's even an outtake reel that plays after the movie, showing just how much effort went into making this small masterpiece of an actioner.

The fighting in Contour is truly amazing. Real contact and blazingly fast choreography. What it lacks in story it more than makes up for in fights. The movie is almost nonstop fighting, and all of the fights are so good it's really hard to choose a favorite. If you are a fan of fight choreography and have not seen this, you need to get it today. No excuses.


Special features on the Indican DVD are plentiful. There's a 30 minute making of, blooper reel, deleted scene, Tae Pho instructional video, practice videos for the movie, a stunt demo and trailers.

Jeez. Damn. Holy fudge. Any of these exclamations and variations thereof will uttered after sitting through "Contour," the feature-length adrenaline offering of the Stunt People stunt team. Not unlike Team Yamakasi's production of Yamakasi, these guys apparently got tired of short films, live demos, and doing work for other movies and decided to try their hand at something more substantial. The result is an absolute orgy of some of literally the best fight scenes I have ever seen...marred by the fact that they're presented via a stupid comedy storyline with an obviously limited budget. These latter aspects almost killed the movie for me, but amazingly, the action choreography alone managed to kick my rating up two stars from what I would've otherwise given the film. Even if, like me, you're not hip to everything the movie offers, you'd still be a fool to miss the advent of the new standard of movie martial artistry.

The story: a thug-for-hire (director Eric Jacobus, Immortal) saddled with quirky tourists finds himself caught up in a race against time to recover a video tape that might spell doom for an entire country.

My condensed synopsis doesn't cover the comedy aspects of the movie, but trust me, it's goofy, and not in a way I can easily tolerate. Every now and again, a bit of Jackie Chan buffoonery will hit the spot, but even I don't punish myself with something like City Hunter.

Wow! What a cool little flick this is. To call this movie "low-budget" is an understatement, yet it's far more entertaining than most of the billion dollar action epics that come out of Hollywood, and maybe even Hong Kong. This was made by a group of amateurs (not for long) known as the Stunt People, out of San Francisco. Not only is the martial arts fast, fluid, and incredible, but the film has a silly, undeniable charm to it. No, the acting is not that good, but you never get the feeling that they're just "going through the motions". It's got sincerity.

Director Eric Jacobus plays Law, a petty criminal whose failed heist brings him back to his day job as a tour guide. One of the people on his tour is the visiting Prince of Uruvia (Ed Kahana Jr.), who has lost posession of a videotape that has the potential to bring down the monarchy back home. If Law can somehow get it, he can score 2 million smackers. There's a lot more to the plot, but the less you know, the more you'll enjoy it.

Honestly, I think I would've liked this even if it didn't have any fight scenes. I don't remember too many "laugh out loud" scenes, but I also don't remember any point during the film where I wasn't grinning from ear to ear, either. Any movie that makes up a style (Tae Pho) that teaches you self-defense while eating soup can't possibly be bad, or at least not bad in a bad way. The acting is actually better than I expected. Ed Kahana's prince is the most annoying, but he stays in character, and grows on you as the film develops.

The DVD from Indican is loaded with special features, including a Tae Pho instructional video, several interviews and "making of" segments. If you are a fan of fight films, this needs to be seen. This movie is to action films what "Clerks" was to comedies. Highly Recommended.
