Storyline: 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 got involved with Briggs, a drug dealer and when he blew a deal, Briggs demands restitution which he can't deliver. So Chris offers to find a way to pay Briggs but then 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.

Reviews
An Entertaining Good Movie-Not great but good-
It is enjoyable to watch Mark Wahlberg on the screen, especially when he is in his element and that is playing a family member trying to protect his family. Like Bobby Mercer in FOUR BROTHERS or Joseph Grusinsky in WE OWN THE NIGHT, here in this film we have Chris Farraday trying to set his brother-in-law right for the betterment of the family. Wahlberg is like Matt Damon's Jason Bourne, different context but he makes you feel safe. Whatever the outcome we know Chris Farraday will prevail for the good of all in the end. As a painter, I enjoyed the tongue- in cheek play on the Pollack painting, how everyone saw it as a tarp, however its never explained if Farraday recognized its significance. It would be nice if he had- just another element of his astuteness. yes there were far too many contrived scenes in order to make the movie work, and its plot originality was poor but this time I didn't care- the film was that enjoyable. Although I have my reservations for younger brother Robert Wahlberg acting skills but who knows. We can only see. While this wasn't a great film it was a fun film. I by no means felt any tension or was on the edge of my seat but I was entertained. Wahlberg has acted in far better films. I only hope he ups the ante on his next films. We've already seen far too many great actors such as DeNiro, Liotta & Cage take the fork in the road towards quantity and not quality.

Another January Dud.
I will start this review by saying - Where was the press release on this movie? I knew nothing about it until two weeks prior.

To the film itself...we have nothing original here. Yes, it's true, every film now-a-days tends to slightly mirror another film, but this film in particular has the familiarity of having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It might be okay for some people once and a while, but most people want something a little more filling and unpredictable.

Let's look at the flaws...

1.) Mark Wahlberg is fine, but we've seen him sleep walk his way through movies like this many times already. It's always been tough to see him seriously as the "action hero" he's been taking on lately. I'd like to see him expand out and do more films like "The Fighter" or "I Heart Huckabees". The rest of the cast is fine, but it's only fine - No one is doing anything that they wouldn't normally play...everyone is in a comfort zone and there is nothing to care about for any of the characters on screen.

2.) 0% Originality. That wouldn't be terrible...sometimes you just need a good old action film to get you through the day...but this has no glamor and no game. Some action films seem like they're made up of "best of" moments from previous action films, and this feels like they've borrowed a lot of "worst of" moments.

3.) No action. I'm serious. There is one scene that almost makes it to a thrilling full on chase, but is short lived, and is over before you care. Occasionally someone will get punched in the face, and there are way too many gun pointing in faces, but that's it.

Let's look at what's good...

1.) J.K. Simmons is the one guy who breathes a little life into the ensemble. Yes, he's still the fast talking funny man, but he's put a nice little twist on what he usually is stuck with and is the only compelling person to watch on screen...

2.) It's got a good run time. Just under 2 hours - If only they had the right material to put in those two hours...

3.) Decent standard action soundtrack.

3 stars out of 10. If you liked this movie or you would like a better recommendation on a similar sort of film... check out "Gone In 60 Seconds" or "Oceans Eleven".

Over and dead,

Disappointing, slow and sometimes boring
Contraband is a mediocre movie that fails to live up to what is presented in the trailers and in the movie's premise. Definitely not one of Mark Wahlbergs's best films by a long shot. The story was not interesting, the action scenes dull and the acting was sub-par.

I never really cared about any of the characters. I can't think of one performance that stood out as being good. Not sure if it was a bad script or just bad acting.

The pace of the movie was really slow. I kept waiting for it move faster, but never did.

I liked Wahlberg in "The Italian Job', but Contraband has a much weaker supporting cast and a poorer storyline.

There are better heist, action movies to see than this one.

100% implausible
Contraband would be much more enjoyable were it the least plausible and make a little sense.

As it is it really is a joke and the writers must either think we are IQ-free or they snorted way too much coke while writing the scenario.

I won't go into details to avoid spoilers but I'm sure those who want to check will find everything in other critics and forum entries.

It is still a perfectly watchable action movie thanks to a great cast (but please never use Kate Beckinsale's hairdresser ever again) if you really have 2 hours to loose but otherwise you absolutely can avoid watching it.

Unbelievably bad
This should be shown in film schools everywhere on how to not make a film. Terrible acting from everyone, with the exception of the child actors. The characters are so cliché'd and cardboard. Ribisi and JK Simmons....beyond awful. The over-acting was so bad, as if those two were purposefully trying to never get hired to act again. And they are all supposed to be from New Orleans? I was so confused at the beginning because they seemed to be in NO, but not one character sounded at all like they have ever left Boston or New York. Oh, and the "surprise" traitor. I spotted the rat within 5 minutes of the movie starting. The camera work was jarring and off-putting. The plot and script seemed to have been written by a teenaged boy, and not a particularly good one.

Only plus I can give this movie is it was "free" on cable.

HATED this movie.Slow, poor acting and writing.
I was stuck for a film to see today so thought I'd go for this as had seen some good reviews.

I was wary as I really don't think Mark Whalberg is a good actor. He's not had professional training and it shows in my opinion, in all his films I've seen. He lacks emotional depth and it's almost acting by numbers. People who just 'turn to' acting do not have the necessary foundation skills to craft and hone over time as they've not studied it professionally. I know some people will disagree with my comments.

I could not empathise or sympathise with ANY of these characters. The story is based in the drugs culture with Whalberg's character almost glamorising drug/money smuggling. Certainly no moral ethics are seen here. I couldn't have cared less if his wife got buried in concrete in a plastic bag with her mobile phone to be honest. How can you sympathise with characters who are so caught up in their needs being met through a life of crime without even thinking of the impact of their behaviours and actions on others? Whalberg appears very bored right the way through. I don't know if anyone saw him on the Graham Norton show, but he said he was tired and couldn't be bothered on that too and it showed. Perhaps he needs to retire now? The rest of the cast were very average. The direction was unremarkable as were the action scenes.

I came out of the cinema just as the credits started to roll and felt angry that I'd sat through something which ultimately gave the message that drug crime pays. Try telling that to those of us who have or have had relatives who are hooked on the stuff and the shear hell it causes everyone else around them.

Hated this film with avengence.

OMG what a howler!
If you see good reviews here be deeply suspicious of the posters. This film is a turkey, not just a turkey but a howling at the moon on your lawn raving mad loony turkey.

Where to start with this travesty? First off the premise. Ex smugglers brother in law throws drugs over board during customs bust. OK. Happens. But what follows is laughable. He lost $700k but the dealer he lost it for lives in a yucky condo. ??? Huh? (he was getting it for someone else it later turns out but who'd trust this cheap bozo with that money?)

OK so the hassle is on our hero to save the day. So he goes 'tough guy' on the dealer but then still has to do job. Huh? Look if you can beat the bad guy up, stick a gun in his mouth why do you still have to do the job?

Its all down hill from here. Cheesy predictable action, a mass shoot out that no one could escape from and doesn't except our hero, sigh. Really this is just a mess. I hope you see this before the download or heaven forbid buy a ticket at some lonely B movie theater or DVD purchase. Demi Moore couldn't make worse starring Madonna.

Biggest disappointment of 2012,
It speaks poorly of today's moviegoers that anyone would rate this turkey higher than 3. The continuity, photography, lighting, and direction are atrocious. The story makes no sense; and the screen is too dark to see much of anything 20% of the time.

I like Mark Walberg, and I just love Kate Beckensale; but I challenge anyone to tell us what she was wearing in ANY of her many scenes. The photography was so bad, and the choppy camera-hop was like an ADD kid was running things.

This one played and died quickly in theaters, so we caught it on DVD. It cost us $1.60 for the rental' 80 cents each. This movie is not worth 80 cents.

disappointed
Nothing new about the story of the movie. Actually I was expected more from Mark Wahlberg.. I couldn't even call this movie action movie, we didn't see so much action in the movie... in my opinion and that is only my opinion because maybe someone else like the movie but I didn't enjoy it and I think it is only deserve 5 out 10..

The movie is about one hour and 48 minutes and for one hour I found the movie is very boring and nothing happen. And the only funny thing in the movie is the last scene in the movie.. there is no logic at all in this scene.. When mark Wahlberg call this guy I couldn't remember his name to tell him that he know the truth and he will be behind him if something happen to his family and then he insist to kill her and Chris came in the last second and stop the cement machine and save her and take her to the hospital after we thought that she was died ... what is that ???

again that is my opinion. if you ask for my advise choose another movie or go and watch it and judge by yourself... Thanks

What A Man Would Do
The next movie I'm reviewing is the movie "Contraband," starring Mark Wahlberg, Giovanni Ribisi, and Kate Beckinsale. I had two thoughts about this movie when I first seen it. I thought that, it could be a good movie or be one of those movies were your like: "I've seen this before and I know what's going to happen."

This movie is about a man that has his family threatened and he's doing what ever it takes to make things right even if he has to go back to his old ways!

Honestly, this is a good movie. I would definitely say this is worth seeing in the movie theaters. I enjoyed this movie. The movie to me felt real. I say real in the since that I could see this happening. Nothing in this movie feels far fetched and I like that. I think that is what gives this movie its breathe fresh air. I feel as though Mark Wahlberg and Giovanni Ribisi do a great job on the acting tip.

Giovanni Ribisi is a actor that I would like to see in more movies. In any movie that I've seen him in, he really makes me feel his character. In this movie he plays a ruthless character. There's certain parts in the movie were he's kind of just sitting there staring at whatever and he just sells you on the ruthlessness his character is suppose to provide for the audience. He does a great job.

I give this movie the rating of 8 out of 10. If you have a couple extra dollars on you and you want to see a movie. You have my permission to spend your money on this movie.
