||What impressed me most about The Contractor is indeed the acting. Sure, you can make a film these days at all most any budget, but the one thing that will always make or break your film, no matter what it is, it the acting. To me the acting was great here, and almost to the level of a theatrical film, especially by Snipes (whom seems genuinely a part of the role)...Overall, I wasn't expecting much, in fact before watching the film I was expecting to give this a negative review. But I guess, such as all things, you should never pre-judge, because it turns out that this film has a lot more story then you initially would think. The plot was well maintained...I really enjoyed this action/suspense film...The Contractor is a very good direct-to-video film, and that's something that can't always be said. As I said, I enjoyed it a lot better than I expected, as most direct-to-video action flicks bore me easily, however The Contractor interested me. I recommend!
