The Contractor

A discharged Special Forces soldier joins a private contracting org on a covert mission.


Why watch this film?

With Chris Pine ('Star Trek') headlining the cast, 'The Contractor' is an action movie at its core, following all the conventions of the genre with shooting, fighting and explosions. However, the plot, which is about a military man who is removed from the marines and then joins a paramilitary organization to support his family in the only way he knows, hits the mark by bringing up controversial points and provoking the viewer, going beyond the obvious and preventing the movie from being just another generic action production, pleasing a wider audience. It's worth keeping an eye on director Tarik Saleh ('Metropia'), who doesn't settle for filming scenes in a banal way, looking for inventive and daring means.
