“The Contract” - a thriller filled with action, adventure and a political twist. Ray (John Cusack) takes his son for a hiking / camping trip only to find himself literally on the edge of a cliff in the wilderness after stumbling upon Frank (Morgan Freeman) a hit man, who is attempting to escape the law. Ray thinks he can just walk the prisoner back to the proper authorities and continue the camping trip with his son. What Ray does not count on is that Frank has some friends tracking them through the woods, and they will stop at nothing to get Frank back in order to carry out their contract to execute a high powered businessman. Eliminating anyone who gets in the way is all part of the game. I liked the nice background settings in this film, beautiful scenery, action, and adventure…... I also like Morgan Freeman too.
