Contract To Kill (2017/Lionsgate Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C Film: C

Steven Seagal comes out with yet another new film, as there have been quite a few as of late, in fact seven in the past year (some reviewed elsewhere on this site such as End of a Gun and Sniper: Special Ops). This one is Contract To Kill, that won't necessarily blow you away in terms of story but isn't without some impressive action sequences and plenty of one liners to keep any action movie fan amused. Once again, Seagal must come out of retirement to stop some extreme terrorist bad guys - when will they ever learn? The film also stars Russell Wong, Jemma Dallender, Sergiu Costache, and Ghassan Bouz.

Harmon (Seagal) is a fast talking and quick to kill CIA/DEA enforcer investigating Arab terrorists captured in Mexico. With his team--seductive FBI agent Zara and spy-drone pilot Sharp--he flies to Istanbul and uncovers a brutal plot that only he can prevent! Islamic extremists plan to use Sonora drug-smuggling routes to bring deadly weapons, and leaders, into the U.S. to prevent an attack on America, Harmon has to put all of skills to the ultimate test.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and fantastic sounding, lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track, the film looks and sounds fine on the Blu-ray format with surprisingly good cinematography by Liviu Pojoni Jr. that some of the producers from the Expendables franchise should take note of. A digital copy is also included.

Special Features include The Making of Contract to Kill & a Trailer Gallery.

Typical Seagal fair and nothing more, Contract to Kill will entertain some and bore others. It does make one wonder though, why isn't Seagal in the Expendables movies? Same studio.
