Great Movie! Didn't think I would like it within the first few minutes, but I kept watching and it turned out really well.

"The Contender" will hold your interest to the very end.
"The Contender" is an awesome story about the political struggle of a woman who is bombarded by rumors dug up from her past. Are they fact or not? This film has you on the edge of your seat hunting for the truth. The viewer is caught up in the struggle right along with the vice presidential hopeful, portrayed by Joan Allen. Will her appointment be extinguished by rumor?
The movie was amazing, holding your interest until the very end. I plan on purchasing this DVD for family.

This item was a gift and the person is very pleased.
I have not seen this movie. The person I bought it for swears that it is one of his many absolute favorites. I will say that I had the movie sent directly to his address and he says that it is in pristine condition and it will have a special place on the shelf with his other favorites.

Worth seeing; politicians are ambitious w/traces of idealism.
A favorite movie of a friend, I also enjoyed the political intrique that is a main theme. Joan Allen & Gary Oldman make great antagonists. The happy Hollywood ending detracts little from the overall quality.

A movie to watch over and over.
The number of great actors in this movie is amazing and the plot is more inventive than you think at the beginning. And, of course it is all about holding to your principles, even when it seems all the odds are against you. There is some strong language, especially by Sam Elliott (can't imagine someone talking that way in the presence of the President), but I suppose it fits the role. Highly recommend.
