    Synopsis


    Contraband
    A former smuggler from New Orleans faces ruthless drug lords, vicious criminals, corrupt officials, and trigger-happy hit men after getting back into the business to help his brother-in-law settle a deadly debt. When it came to transporting illicit goods under treacherous circumstances, Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) used to be the best in the business. But all of that changed when he chose to give up his life of crime to start a family with Kate (Kate Beckinsale). Chris learns that leaving his past behind is easier said than done, however, after Kate's brother Andy (Caleb Landry Jones) goes to work for ferocious drug lord Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), and drops the ball on a major deal. Now, in order to set things right, Chris must smuggle millions of dollars in counterfeit bills from Panama into the United States. And if anything goes wrong, Tim will target his entire family for death. With his best friend Sebastian (Ben Foster) by his side and a crackerjack crew along for the ride, Chris heads to Panama for one last job. Later, with time running out and a treacherous maze of desperate criminals to navigate, the job gets complicated, and Chris must race to reach his family before Tim gets to them first. Lukas Haas, Diego Luna, and J.K. Simmons co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I saw it at the movie and like it. Since it was a date night movie we buy it to re enjoy, it's our little thing. The plot although slightly cliche is pulled off in a excellent manner With a true twist. The biggest pros is action packed Wahlberg ,believable characters ,no nudity, mild violence and some strongly wording, the for 2011 release it was still a great movie.

      Pretty much the typical Mark Wahlberg movie

      Contraband is a fairly decent heist film, but it lacks any kind of character development and the acting could be better. As I said though, it's pretty much the typical Wahlberg movie, so you're not watching it to see Oscar-worthy performances. If you like Wahlberg and/or like heist movies, you'll probably like this one as well.

      Going to see a mark wahlberg movie is like playing Russian roulette odds are stacked against you. Most if the time he is straining to sound real but ends up sounding like he is reading lines. This movie though is far from that. Action galore and mark is beleivable in this character. Definitely a must see

      Unfortunately I found this to be a "B" movie in all aspects of movie making and not what I would have expected from Mark Walberg. Film quality was poor, mismatched cast and not so believable story line about smuggling contraband in shipping containers

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Surprised at the good action and story line of this movie. Not as implausible as so many of todays movies though there were spots where you had to shake your head. Actually one of Wahlberg's best and surprised it didn't receive more press.

      I enjoy Mark Wahlberg acting, He gets right into the part. and puts his life on the line. The stunts look so real. The action scenes were intense with great cinematography. Kate Beckinsale cast as the wife was good for the part.
