The Contractor (2007)

The Contractor (2007) -* * *

Directed By: Josef Rusnak

Starring: Wesley Snipes, Lena Headey, and Charles Dance

The Contractor is the best DTV Snipes movie yet.

Agent James Dial (Snipes) has to take out a target in London. It goes as planned, but the police and his former employers are after him.

The movie has a good mix of action and drama. Snipes (finally) looks interested in the material and it shows. Lena Headey and Charles Dance also have their time to shine too. It's fast-paced and suspenseful. I think it's better than the similar titled\plotted Shooter (2007) with Mark Wahlberg. The Contractor was actually called "Shooter" but it was changed for obvious reasons.

I'm excited to report that The Contractor is worth seeing and not the usual piece of DTV junk that Snipes has foisted upon us in the past.
