Contraband is an action thriller, a former smuggler has to back into business for his brother in law to save him and his family from drug lord. Movie is more a heist and with average script it brings some sorts of excitement. It is not kind your edge of your seat thriller which easily called masterpiece rather than it is entertaining piece. For moviegoers go to cinema with buckets of popcorn and to enjoy those minute. It is well directed movie and easily can be enjoyed in Home videos too. Mark is easily a star he knows What is film about? and it is for whom. It is not meant to win critics heart or win multiple awards its for enjoyment and it is not disappointing.

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,

The definition of average
First of all, let me say that I'm not going to say a bad word against this film. However, the problem is that I'm not going to say a good one either.

There's very little to say about 'Contraband' because I feel that I've seen it all before. Retired criminal (Mark Wahlberg) gets called out of retirement for 'one last job' to save his loser brother in law from a gang of nasties. There's a doublecross in there somewhere, but you'll probably see it coming a mile off. Despite, the decent enough cast, there's nothing here that a hardened cinema-goer hasn't seen a hundred times before.

You can 'watch' this film while you're moving around the house, generally doing other things and you won't miss anything important.

If you're a die-hard fan of Mark Wahlberg or his on-screen wife, Kate Beckinsale, then you might see it as more than just average, but I would say rent or watch it on TV before you decide to pay to watch it. Just in case.

Dreadful
0 out of 10.Lasted 5 minutes before I walked out.

Shaky cam,deep distracting shadows,jagged editing,grossly distorted colours,mumbling actors,subtitles needing to be chased all over the screen.Unwatchable.

The DP needs to go back to school and have his/her colour pencils confiscated as well as their lens cap glued on.You are here to serve the narrative,you are not the narrative.

May be unfair to single out this film with this criticism as the comments apply to many films over the last few years.Dogme was put down a decade ago and the current fashion my comments address are dogme's evil spawn.

This was a movie that actually made it a pleasure to go back to TV,advertising and station bugs.

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.

A surprisingly intriguing crime drama thriller
I decided to watch Contraband because it's free on Amazon Prime Video, iv'e never heard of this film before until i browsed through the free section.

The cinematic color theme is dark and gritty as to suit the plot. The performances are very natural and not over the top.

The plot is standard and there is no twist except for a character changing his ways unexpectedly which isn't what i would call a plot- twist, just a character change.

I wasn't expecting Contraband to be interesting at all, but it holds your attention enough as to watch until the very end.

Even Wahlberg looks embarrassed.
I do hope this is the worst film Wahlberg has been in, coz it would be hard to imagine one worse. It is a tiresome, generic, 'last time heist' protagonist reformed crim who has to take on one last job where every conceivable thing goes wrong. You can almost hear the scriptwriters daring each other to put in yet another ridiculous clichéd line. The only good thing is the laughs at how slapstick scene after slapstick scene is piled on top of the last one. Couldn't even make it to the end. Nothing makes sense, people take pointless risks, the nasty dealer is mental ...and so on....Not even sure why this film was made.Never made the big screen in the UK; but then, only the better Hollywood movies do, which tells you something. Even the rip off scene from The Italian Job(original and best) should be funnier, but by then I was slipping into a coma...

Don't Waste Your Time. Piece of crap! We turned it off after 15 minutes.
I love crime movies, and I love the main actors in this film. But when my sons and I sat down to watch it, after 15-20 minutes, once we knew where the whole thing was going - the big problem had they had to solve, so to speak. And not one of us gave a rip...

It was like, "Wait you want me to sit through another hour and a half to find out they accomplish what I couldn't care less about." No thanks.

Should have known to avoid this thing when it said this was the director's first Hollywood film (on IMDb). Hard to believe they got all the actors to sign on, unless they did it somewhat as charity to help New Orleans, where it was filmed. I grew up across the lake from New Orleans, and that wasn't even enough to make me want to sit through the rest of it.

This is good movie, but could of done more
The movie contraband is made out to be more on the trailers, the constant shooting and action scenes seen in the trailer make you see the movie as a awesome action for the year,but in retrospect are not retrospect it isn't as much as it seems. great movie don't get me wrong but they could have done a bit more and made some of the scenes more complex and slow down the movie a bit more. A few Really good scenes, with action conflict and the need to do what needs to be done also a few scenes with very bad language, but pass and make u laugh. i do believe that this is a Defiantly see this movie, I believe when u see this is will be allot to discuss and analysis. i recommend if u are going to watch it to go and see it in Vmax- vmax is like a normal cinema but it has bigger seats, better sound, and a bigger screen, of course more expensive but worth the cost.
