Movies Contract To Kill - Steven Seagal, Russell Wong, Director K. Waxman (finished)

Feature - Action
Release: December 9 2016 ( VOD and Limited Theatre Release)

Actors: Steven Seagal; Russell Wong; Jemma Dallender
Director: Keoni Waxman

Special Agent John Harmon is called back into action when the CIA stumbles upon evidence that a dangerous group of extremists is planning to join forces with a drug cartel. He assembles a high tech team of operatives and devises a daring operation to turn the two groups against each other in an explosive confrontation.



I had a chat with Keoni Waxman and he confirmed this:

I'm about to start our next Seagal film in about a week. It's set in Mexico and Istanbul and at the moment it's called 'Contract to Kill'. Getting excited about it - Steven's co-star is Russell Wong and we are working with Ron Balicki again so look for some cool knife fights. We've also made a few changes in our approach to the films so I think it'll look very different than EOAG (as well as 'Killing Salazar'). All a good thing.

That's fine Dida, everyone is entitled to to their own opinion.

I'm just interested as to why people seem to rag on this movie, more than (let's say) 'SNIPER - SPECIAL OPS' (which was as basic and unspectacular as a movie can be)
CONTRACT TO KILL (to me, at least) is like a low-budget Mission Impossible movie. Sure it has faults, but it's mostly Seagal back, front and centre of the screen. Plus it's a bit more topical than some of his usual stuff. I'm aware that it's a bit too talky in the first half.....but the plot kept me involved (and it didn't have too much filler) And for all it's faults it was professionally shot at least. Yes, it could have had more fights (but most Seagal movies from the last 15 years or so, are also guilty of this) but I thought that beyond all this, CONTRACT TO KILL was a pretty cool spy thriller (similar in tone to THE FOREIGNER, but not as confusing)
