Contraband - A Movie Viewer's Review
Contraband is a pretty good movie. That being said, there are some mistakes in this movie that could have made it a great movie. Through the last half of the movie it just makes all of the scenes and all of the drama into a jumbled up mess. Going into this movie, you will have to know that this is a thriller, and only then will you be truly entertained while watching this.

The story is a strong one with multiple arguments jam packed together into one big dramatic fight. What happens, though, is that there gets to be too many big arguments and they overlap each other and eventually you'll forget one part that happened that was very important and then you'll be watching a next important argument.

There is a violent shootout. It's about five minutes long, but for an R rated movie it's nothing compared to some of the violence in other movies.

I think that the worst problem that was done in this movie was that people expected the wife to be kidnapped and then at the end Chris would have killed the bad guy. No. What happens is that Tim Riggs keeps threatening Chris' family, once to Chris and the rest of the times to his wife, and what really happens is that near the beginning and near the end Chris keeps showing up Tim.

I liked this movie for a thriller but if you're more of an action movie lover, aka die hard, then don't waste your time with this movie because you will end up disappointed.

The last and most important thing I will state is that people who love strong stories will love the drama in this movie. It's all about transporting counterfeit bills from New Orleans to Panama and along the way there are many complications between Chris, Tim, Kate, and Sebastian. Get ready for a wild ride.

Well, the one sheet looks good.....
Chris Faraday once smuggled illegal items or contraband into the country on freighters.

He left that life behind, got married has a family and went legit. But when his brother-in-law gets involved with Briggs, a drug dealer and when blows a deal, Briggs demands restitution which he can't deliver.

So Chris offers to find a way to pay him but the he threatens Chris' family if he doesn't deliver.

So he gets on a freighter destined for Panama and he sets out to bring back some counterfeit currency. Briggs "goes to see" Chris' family.

When Chris learns of this he asks his friend Sebastian to take care of them which he does. He tells Chris that it would be better to bring drugs instead of the cash.....

The one rule that film makers should know now is that if you hire Ben Foster, everyone will know his character will turn out to be a bad apple come the end, no matter what. This has been evident since X-Men: The Last Stand.

But thats not the problem with he film, the problem with he film is the lack of flow with he story, and the worst narrative I have ever endured. The film is bad on many levels, and it just gets the extra star for one confrontation between Marky Mark and Ribisi.

The cast seem really out of place, and Farraday never really seems to feel any urgency throughout the movie, despite his wife and kids being in danger, and Ribisis continuing threats.

All in all it's a very badly made movie, not knowing whether to be Heat one minute, or the Italian job the next.

Pretty lame heist movie
I was asked to go to this movie and went last night. I watched one preview on IMDb and could tell you the general idea of how the movie played out. Mark Wahlberg was so lucky throughout the whole movie that you think that the karma from what he suffered while trying a pop career as Marky Mark is finally paying off in a big way to his characters.

Aside from the awkward amount of pure good luck, the movie was just a few explosions, a couple of okay ideas and some cheap suspense. At no point did I ever want to leave the movie, but there were a few points where I laughed in the theater at a scene that was so wild that I couldn't take it seriously.

The acting was (for the most part) all convincing enough to believe and for sure didn't detract from the movie and the story itself was good.

All in all, it was entertaining, but barely, and probably not $9.50 entertaining. Redbox or Netflix it if you really want to see it.

Contrabanned
In the exclusively clichéd Contraband, ex-bad guy Mark Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday who helps his idiot brother-in-law out of a jam but gets himself and wifey into plenty himself.

Quite frankly, that's all I want to say about this mess of a movie. It was a gut wrenching experience to watch old burned out themes overlapping even older and tired themes repeatedly. Hell, they all-but start the movie in the standard crowded, obviously East-Coast bar where Chris professes the standard, retired "he ain't like that anymore" speech.

It didn't help the movie was filmed in the dark, for the most part, and the script all over the place. Throw in bad performances, ho-hum action segments and actors who just didn't care to be there.

This heist themed film is so far removed from entertainment that it should, in fact, be banned. It's light-years under Ocean's Eleven (pick one) and it's a chore to get to the inevitable, highly foreseen finale.

Seriously, there is barely a redeeming quality here and it should be skipped.

A solid entertaining thriller, intense and suspenseful
Contraband is an engaging crime-thriller, the strong cast delivers intense performances, Mark Wahlberg was in full control and was as intense in action scenes as he was in the dramatic ones, Giovanni ribisi is a delight to watch and steals every scene he is in, Ben Foster as always gives a incredible performance, even though Kate Beckinsale gives a strong performance she is wasted, considering that it is not a very key role and could have been done by someone else.

As far as the direction goes Baltasar has executed the movie very well. Intense performances by a strong cast and a good execution overcomes a weak and predictable script.Even though it is predictable and forgettable by the numbers thriller, It never forces or over-do it self it earns it's intensity.

This is a very well narrated movie in which the tension is kept high and is very palpable, there is not a scene that drags, hence resulting in a strong and entertaining thriller.

Wahlberg Gets Contraband For Ribisi
Beckinsale, Ribisi, Foster and Wahlberg in one movie! I wasn't going to miss that and the title also added further interest. 'Contraband' starts off a bit like a cliché (bearing strong resemblance to one of my favourite action flicks 'Gone in 60 Seconds'). But once the story moves passed that and focuses on John and his attempt to rescue his family who, in the meantime, are being terrorized by gangster Briggs. The writing is good.

Even though the plot is far-fetched at times, the characters are properly fleshed out and the dialogues are interesting. The slightly washed out colours give it a gritty look (even though this technique is becoming more frequent in action films coming out these days). Sound effects are good and the score is adequate and the editing is superb. 'Contraband' moves at a steady pace and the level of energy is very well-maintained.

Baltasar Kormákur has earned a name in world cinema and it's good to see him branch out geographically. He does a smooth enough job here.

The cast is superb. Mark Wahlberg is more than the action hero. He's also the concerned father and husband who really doesn't want to go back to the world he left behind. Giovanni Ribisi is excellent as the badass gangster. Her performs naturally. Ben Foster plays his part with equal conviction and strong restraint. At first I thought Kate Beckinsale wasn't given much more to do than play the concerned wife but in the latter reel she too manages to push past it. J.K. Simmons and Diego Luna provide some dark comic relief.

The ending of 'Contraband' is a typically Hollywood one but that doesn't stop the film from being entertaining overall.

Contraband
I disliked Aaron Gozikowiski's screenplay, because of the very poor character development. So no wonder it was so flat. It resulted to me not having an emotion or very deep opinion on the actors' roles. Their backstories could have been richer and mentioned a lot more in their dialogue. The Hollywood stars should have had improvised scenes which would of gave them the opportunity to enrich the psychological dimension of their roles. But it had to be a big and fat no…… no. Chris Ferriday was the reformed narcotic trafficker who had two sons and a wife. The main character had a legal self-employed job, fixing security alarms for customers. What I could not stand was that Chris was not shown bonding with his family or having a deep discussion about his up bringing and his old world of smuggling. The director Baltasar Kormákur could of allowed flash backs on his past. I wish the actors could of improvised scenes so that their roles could stand out in the movie. Kate Ferriday (Chris's wife) was hardly exposed in recording spending time with her children unless something dramatic happened. It did not explore her own opinion about parenting or how she raised her two sons. I did not know what type of relationship she had with her biological brother Andy who messed things up. Kate barely played a part in the film. Talking about Andy what influenced him into the world of smuggling? Was he pressured into that underworld society by criminals like Tim Briggs? Could Andy of been remorseless including not caring about those who would suffer from his trafficked drugs? More of these moral questions were left as question marks. Tim Brigs was just a complete sociopathic maniac who just got out of prison. He re offends and carries on his profitable narcotic dealing. He is a single parent who raises her daughter in a poor conditioned ghetto. What happened to his partner who gave birth to his daughter Zoe? Who looked after Zoe when Tim Briggs was locked upped in prison? What triggered the man to be such a monster? Well there were no answers when I watched the film. The storyline mainly focused on massive shoot outs and the underworld of trafficking. Baltasar Kormákur The director gave me an urban shot of New Orleans. He used camera zooming and a bird's eye view so that the landscape could be admired. Unfortunately, there were so many quick glimpse shots which became erratic after a while. In some scenes I could not clearly understand what was going on because of Baltasar Kormákur directing. But on the other hand, I appreciated the city-related cinematography especially at night time. That was when I could see colours stand out from a shady background. Barry Ackroyd did a fantastic job at that. What would put my frown upside down was the African Jazz and the electronic soundtrack. Clinton Shorter's electronic music made me feel like I was sucked into an urban and gripping atmosphere. To balance my judgement I will give 'Contraband' a 5 ½ /10

Keeps adrenaline flowing
This film tells the story of a ex smuggler who turned clean. His brother in law gets into trouble with a drug lord, and he has to go to Panama to do shady businesses to get things right. However, the journey is a bumpy one because there is seemingly no one he can trust.

The plot is an exciting one, because there is one situation after another. The constant struggles and fights with both the dark side and the bright side keeps the adrenaline going, especially when you think you can trust someone but you really cannot. It is also refreshing to see that the man hero is not portrayed to be invincible, but a regular guy who people can relate to.

Disjointed
I really expected more out of this movie.

I like Mark Walberg generally. "Boogie Nights" was wonderful, and I also enjoyed "Happenings".

"Contraband" doesn't match up against these other films.

It's disjointed, choppy, and difficult to keep up with.

If you like Mark, you'll probably enjoy this movie.

Without him it wouldn't be much.

That's starpower for you.

It begins to pick up speed at about 1:20 minutes.

This is probably a watch-it-once-and-forget-about movie, but you might like to watch it once.
