    The Contender (2000)

    Very well made and well written political thriller, one of my all time faves of the genre, its a great story, showing the lengths people will go to to get their way in politics, its always engaging and pretty fast paced, all the acting is great, i love all the actors in it, i will admit at times it paints joan allens character to be such a saint and heroine and i felt that was a bit overthetop, i mean yea what they did to her was rotten, but its not like shes the second coming of jesus or anything, very well shot too, there are many great shots and dissolves
