The Contract

2

Fans of car crashes in surround sound are well catered-for by a DVD premiere headlining the overqualified talents of Morgan Freeman and John Cusack. Driving Miss Daisy man Bruce Beresford directs what feels like an also-ran TV movie, as widower Cusack (with teenage son in tow) attempts to bring hitman Freeman to justice. Aiming at First Blood meets The Fugitive in a thunderstorm, The Contract (which comes with an unilluminating 22-minute Making Of) offers neither tension nor a decent supporting cast, leaving its slumming leads to fend for themselves in the great outdoors.
