Yes, I`ve seen this movie before and it`s a HUGE pile of steaming, which goes on the list of actors who cash in a paycheck. I`d bet my mother on the left will go straight to the DVD if she`s not wired. New trailer released today for Morgan Freeman and John Cusack`s new film “The Contract, have fun. Director Bruce Beresford talks at length about the film`s production in his memoir Josh Hartnett Definitely Wants To Do This. True stories from a lifetime in on-screen trading.  Maybe the movie is amazing (I doubt it one way or another), but this trailer has been terribly assembled. In Washington, D.C, Carden intercepts Miles, who is aware of his role in hiring Davis to kill him. Carden threatens to “come after her” if the Keene family is injured. Two weeks after the incident, Keene enters into a relationship with Sandra and arranges a family barbecue, expressing disbelief at hearing a radio report about Hammond, Sr., who dies in a “boat accident,” and realizes that Carden has completed his murder contract. The scenes on the big rock were shot in Zlatnite Mostove on the Vitosha Mountains of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. A television report in which he feels defeated and rests at home recalls an earlier conversation about Carden`s job description with the key term “eradicating obstacles to progress,” which alerts Keene to Carden`s goal.

I don`t mention this as a name dropping, but to admit that the sound was very quiet because the passengers slept and relied on headphones or Spanish subtitles. Without headphones or working Spanish, I prepared to tire my ears and use subtitles as much as possible. I wouldn`t have had to worry because I could have followed this if the sound had been muted and the DVD had played all the scenes randomly. The plot may be simple, but it offered a kind of moral ambiguity that interested me at first. With two strong actors in the lead roles, I expected the verbal fireworks to be more interesting than the plot. In a way, I was right, but that doesn`t mean the script was good, just the plot was bad. The moral complexity of good and evil is bypassed, but ultimately thrown into an end that is nothing more than insulting and lazy writing. Luckily, anyone who gets to the end won`t be surprised by this, because it`s pretty much like the previous hour. The narrative is absolutely not convincing and does not offer much to compensate for this.
The tension that could have covered the plot holes is missing and the action is usually just plain stupid. Authors Katz and Darrouzet deserve a lot of credit for this, because really no one has much to work with. Director Beresford does the groundwork with little conviction, but I felt sorry for the casting. Both Freeman and Cusack deserved much better than this nonsense. Freeman, I guess, was drawn to the chance to play a villain, and it`s a shame the script doesn`t really let him do it with difficulty. Cusack does what is asked of him, but no more. Supporting actors are at best on average in tune with their cardboard characters. All in all, then a completely bad film, which offers nothing interesting and wastes the talents of the two main actors. If I hadn`t been a captive audience, I would have struggled to break the 30-minute mark.
