4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good action July 15, 2010
Format:DVD
Contract Killers is definitely an ordinary action movie with a fairly weak storyline, but the storytelling aspect hardly matters when the main focus is on nonstop shooting/killing action.

It's about a woman (a pretty darn attractive woman, might I add!) who's framed for murder, so she has to spend the entire movie running from the cops and CIA agents.

I like how RIGHT from the very beginning the storyline and the action kicks in. Don't miss the introduction segment!

Of course the movie isn't without its faults, many of which occur during the action segments themselves. A lot of scenes focus on what I like to call "camera aimlessness". You experience lots of shooting taking place on screen, but the camera then immediately darts in another direction so quickly that you don't actually get to see the shooting scenes themselves, so you end up feeling cheated by them.

Also the storytelling has its faults as well, such as the one segment when the woman breaks into a guys room, points a gun directly to his head, and then actually tells the guy not to move because she has to use the bathroom! She then gets a shower! They become friends later however. Still, the guy should have taken off running at that point instead of sitting in bed and actually waiting for the woman to come back out.

Anyway, it's a fun little action flick. These faults don't really hurt the film overall.

2.0 out of 5 stars a good $2 trashy movie January 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If the weather is bad and you can't get out then this is an okay time waster, but do not pay more than $2 for it. The film is murky and the action is fair. You can tell this is not a high budget movie because the opening scenes are done in the dark and not lit well. This is to hide the lack of budget. When the movie goes to the Bahamas, the action picks up and we have a cheap car chase. Prices are cheaper here so they can film in the day, but it is still muted colors. There is gun play but no shots of the bullets hiting anyone, that would cost money. There is a "sex" scene but no nudity[damn it]. However this was filmed in a strange way, you see the main cahracter lost her husband about two days before and now she is going to bed with a stranger. All this is happening while she is remembering how her husband died. There is nothing new here in the way of plot and the acting is not bad, so it it an okay movie. Nothing more, nothing less. So if you have $2 and time to waste be my guest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contract Killers March 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Contract Killers" is an allright movie,there are lots of action scenes throughtout, but I didn't see the intensity that "Point of No Return" has. The movie had too many location scenes for me, but the shoot out in the old factory was great. The Amazon price is good and you do get your money's worth with this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars THUMBS UP ON THIS DVD PREMIERE! January 21, 2009
By WONKA
Format:DVD
Solid action flick. Good acting and moving plot. Must have for any true action fan. I haven't heard of the actors but am impressed by Frida Farrel. She plays a bad a** CIA assasin trying to break out of the killing business and live a regular life. As suits continue to follow her around, suspense ensues. The only thing about this movie is that it will make you paranoid by the end, sorta like the BOURNE movies or an ENEMY OF THE STATE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is: a fast action thriller ! April 23, 2009
Format:DVD
If you are into Action Thrillers then this is for you, otherwise don't even bother with this DVD. The Story is nothing special, but also not a run of the mill type that would bore the audience. What distinguishes this film are the fast paced action parts which are well dispersed throughout the film. The protagonist is a young woman that has been set up by "her" own intelligence agency that she's working for as a contract killer. When her job is done she was supposed to be killed in order to get rid of any lose ends for her contractors who are in the highest positions of that intelligence agency. She, however, manages to escape her henchmen and turns the tables on the contrators once she discovers that they have been into some very illeagle schemes. Enough said, its worth watching, especially for the action scenes and the thrills that go along with them.
