Not bad if you don't have something better to do.
on July 12, 2009
Actually the acting by Freeman and Cusack isn't bad at all in this action thriller that goes way beyond believability. An ex-cop/High school gym teaching baseball coach out for a reconnecting morning hike with his errant teenaged son, turns into a crazy game of cat and mouse with a team of professional assassins.
If you want a moving drama, this probably isn't it, but if you want a fun popcorn movie to take a thinking break with, then "The Contract" isn't too bad of a choice.
