Reviews

IGN - Unnamed
The Contractor may have an underwhelming conclusion, but the journey to get there is an emotional one, with a strong performance by Chris Pine.
70
The Hollywood Reporter - Sheri Linden
Director Tarik Saleh, whose previous feature was the excellent Cairo-set neo-noir The Nile Hilton Incident, stages the shoot-’em-ups and explosions effectively, but it’s the film’s quiet exchanges that carry the most visceral punch.
70
Variety - Dennis Harvey
Being a solid cut above average is good enough, given so much formulaic mediocrity among thrillers cluttering the streaming market.
67
The Film Stage - Jared Mobarak
While billed as an action film, The Contractor proves more suspense thriller in the end.
60
Slashfilm - Unnamed
The Contractor challenges expectations in many ways, it just never goes quite far enough.
