Watch: Steven Seagal in Official Trailer for Action Film 'Contract to Kill'
"I want to pick my own team, I want my own gear, and I need a jet." Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for a new action movie starring Steven Seagal, and if you've seen any of his other recent work, you know what to expect with this (which means - not much). Contract to Kill stars Seagal as a CIA enforcer investigating Arab terrorists captured in Mexico. His team includes actors Russell Wong and Jemma Dallender, and they're chasing after Ghassan Bouz as Abdul Raouf. This looks like a very low-rent Mission Impossible-meets-The Expendables, with all the typical cliches you'd expect. Including the "Islamic terrorists are our worst enemy" trope. This looks pretty awful, I'm surprised it's being released in theaters at all. Have a look.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Keoni Waxman's Contract to Kill, in high def from Apple:
In this international action-thriller, Steven Seagal stars as Harmon, a CIA/DEA enforcer investigating Arab terrorists captured in Mexico. With his team—seductive FBI agent Zara (Jemma Dallender) and spy-drone pilot Sharp (Russell Wong)—he flies to Istanbul and uncovers a brutal plot: 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 must turn these two savage forces against one another before his time—and his luck—run out. Contract to Kill is both written and directed by American filmmaker Keoni Waxman, of many other Seagal movies and action movies including End of a Gun, Absolution, Force of Execution, Maximum Conviction, Hunt to Kill, A Dangerous Man, The Keeper and The Highwayman. Lionsgate will release the film in theaters + on iTunes starting December 9th this fall. Anyone interested?
