Rating of
4/4 

A first rate political thriller about the dirt and grime of politics. Features some outstanding acting from its cast, particularly Joan Allen, Jeff Bridges, and Gary Oldman. This film illustrates that sometimes the court of public opinion is more important than the court of law. It shows the great lengths that politicians will go to to influence the public opinion, including great acts of immorality. The Contender is one of the most thought provoking films about the functions of American democracy and is one the best films of the last decade. The Contender is a must see film for its brilliant acting and commentary.

Political thriller starring Gary Oldman, Joan Allen, Jeff Bridges and Christian Slater. The film was directed by Rod Lurie and focuses on a fictional United States President (played by Bridges) and the events surrounding his appointment of a new Vice President (Allen).Very powerful and strong movie with a fantastic performance by Gary Oldman.Worth a view.

It started out really good, but went downhill after the first half hour.
