Murder by Contract Reviews

Top Critic
July 21, 2014
Lerner directs with a wary neutrality that leaves judgment aside; he lets the killer speak his piece, resulting in a few politicized surprises.
July 31, 2008
Edwards is strongly cast as the killer and provides a quiet menace which pays off in audience attention.
June 24, 2006
A terrific, no-nonsense B movie which comes on like something by Jean-Pierre Melville: cool, calm and dispassionate.
April 17, 2003
Neither the screenwriter (Ben Simcoe) nor the director (Irving Lerner) ever acquired a big reputation, but here they achieved something singular and nearly perfect.
