The Contender

The Contender (2000)

Great political thirller. Well made.
Cheap tactics, but very real. But decided to give some hope to the viewers, they bring justice at the end, which does not succeed in taking off that bothering feeling lurking in the back of our head reminding us that it may not happen in real world.

Gary Oldman amzes how he changes his looks. Does greatly nothing to get that.
Jeff Bridges as President of America. Convinced me as a good politician until the last speech.
Joan Allen was good except that her characterisation as honest woman won't happen in real politics. It is not good either. Either you are honest or you are in politics. They are mutually exclusive.
Willian Petersen didn't look convincing as a politician. May be I have been watching too much of him as the Crime Scene Investigating scientist.
Christian Slater should do more movies for his fans sake ;-) .

Must watch for politics lovers and for feminists.
