The Contractor is a 2013 action-packed movie about a retired CIA agent, John James, played by Danny Trejo, who is brought back in to conduct a critical mission. The film is directed by Sean Olson and written by Matthew Joynes. The story begins with John James living a peaceful life as a farmer in a small town after retiring from his service in the CIA. However, his peaceful life is interrupted when he is approached by a former colleague, Bob Hogan, who informs him about a dangerous terrorist attack planned against the US.

Bob hires John to capture and interrogate a suspect who has crucial information about the terrorist attack. Initially reluctant, John agrees to the mission when he learns that the terrorist attack might not only endanger the lives of thousands of innocent people but also put the safety of his daughter, Jenny, played by Christina Cox, at risk.

John's mission takes him to Eastern Europe, where he partners with a local operative named Aleksey, played by Brad Rowe, to capture the suspect. But things are not as simple as they seem, and John's journey becomes more dangerous as he uncovers a web of corruption and betrayal. He realizes that he cannot trust anyone, not even his own team.

The Contractor is an intense and thrilling movie that keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats. The action sequences are well-choreographed, and the fight scenes are brutal and realistic. The cinematography is excellent, capturing the beauty of Eastern Europe while also showcasing the gritty and dangerous aspects of the region.

Danny Trejo delivers a fantastic performance as John James, portraying him as a man who is full of regret but also determined to fulfill his duty to his country. Christina Cox shines as Jenny, John's estranged daughter, who is caught in the middle of the terrorist attack. She brings an emotional depth to the movie, and her scenes with Danny Trejo are particularly poignant.
