Genre: Crime

Direct-to-video hitman (or hitwoman) films are a dime a dozen, and The Contract is no different.

Full of aggravating shots done in an attempt to be stylistic, The Contract is a tad bit more ambitious than the typical DTV cheapie, but that doesn’t make it worth watching.

When a senator preparing to run for president decides it’s time to clean his slate, Hannah’s father is killed. Her father was a highly skilled assassin who had taken jobs from Senator Harmon (Williams) in the past. While on a search for clues in her father’s murder, Hannah makes the mistake of letting herself be known. Now she’s on the run, with her artist boyfriend tagging along. But what these men don’t realize is that her father had trained Hannah, and along with that training comes connections.

The Contract is just another movie. Ask me about it in a month and it’ll take a lot of brainpower to conjure up anything more than “Hitman movie.” And technically, even then I’d be wrong. That’s appropriate because director K.C. Bascombe does a whole lot of wrong in this one.
DVD: Barebones. What I’m noticing as of late about older MTI DVDs (1999 and 2000) is that they’re made so cheaply that the printing on the DVD disc itself is slowly beginning to chip off. I’ve noticed this with at least five different MTI titles that I’ve received from Netflix. This hasn’t happened with any other company.
