A straight to the point thriller...
15 September 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

There was just something fundamentally 90's about this thriller. And I mean that in the best possible way actually. It was like watching the thrillers that I remember watching during the 90's.

That being said, then "The Contractor" was actually entertaining and did have an interesting story. The story, though, wasn't particularly thrilling or disturbing, but it was told in a nice way and the plot was great. And this made for a rather enjoyable movie.

It should be said that "The Contractor" is the type of movie you watch once and never again, because the storyline and plot doesn't have enough contents or leverage to support more than a single watching.

The story is about the Chase family who have moved into a new home - a home that needs some renovating. Paul Chase (played by Brad Rowe) gets a tip from a friend about a cheap contractor, and after having discussed this with his wife Elizabeth (played by Christina Cox), they hire Javier Reyes (played by Danny Trejo) to do the work around their new home. However, this contractor has an ulterior motive.

The acting in the movie was quite good, and the three leads did carry the movie quite nicely.

The fighting scenes in the movie were quite wooden and badly choreographed, coming off a rather amateurish and forced. But, given the storyline and plot, then this is a small matter that hardly impacts the movie. And luckily there aren't a lot of fighting in the movie.

"The Contractor" is a straight forward thriller that follows a rather simple blueprint, but it works out nicely and gets the work done.
