Movie synopsis
“Contraband” stars Mark Wahlberg as Chris Farraday, a man who has long since given up his life of smuggling and crime in favor of a security job and the family life. However, Chris is reeled back into his old life after his brother-in-law Andy (Caleb Landry Jones) makes a mess of a drug deal with big-time mob boss Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi). This action drama film kicks into gear when Chris decides to run contraband in order to settle Andy’s debt and keep his family from harm. When the plan falls apart, Chris is forced to navigate murky waters where hit men, drug lords, cops, and criminals of his past await in order to free his family of the debt to Briggs. The run-time on this DVD is 109 minutes and the film is rated R by the MPAA. A U.S. remake of an Icelandic film called “Reykjavik-Rotterdam,” “Contraband” is directed by Baltasar Kormakur and also stars Kate Beckinsale and Ben Foster. “Contraband” is a face-paced action drama DVD with a well-chosen cast.

Editorial reviews

"Wahlberg has a way of making lethal look neighborly and necessary, which he does here....Those qualities go a long way to keep CONTRABAND afloat."
Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey (01/13/2012)

"This is an uncommonly well-crafted action adventure..."
Wall Street Journal (01/13/2012)

3 stars out of 5 -- "This Americanized version of the 2008 Nordic thriller REJKJAVIK ROTTERDAM transfers the original's gritty, violent action into an entertaining and intense starring role for Mark Wahlberg..."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (01/12/2011)

3 stars out of 5 -- "Amid all the grain and grit, Ribisi's colourful villain is as splashy as any Pollack painting, and his unhinged, ratty turn adrenalises the picture."
Total Film - Jamie Graham (04/01/2012)

"An obligingly tense, scruffy addition to the one-last-crime genre."
Movieline - Alison Willmore (01/12/2012)

"A watchably unpretentious yarn as unassuming as its blue-collar hero."
Sight and Sound - Nicolas Rapold (04/01/2012)

"The Mark Wahlberg smuggling drama CONTRABAND benefits from elegant simplicity."
A.V. Club - Nathan Rabin (01/12/2012)

"Involving, atmospherically grungy....The camerawork remains alert and alive to the alarming events that punctuate the characters' lives with all-too-frequent regularity."
Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy (01/11/2012)

Contraband (DVD, 2012)

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Contraband (DVD, 2012)

Contraband starts like "Gone in 60 Seconds", but instead of boosting cars it's about smuggling contraband, and like GI6S it's because of idiot younger brothers and familial responsibilities that brings an ex-criminal/smuggler out of retirement for that one last job. The movie is at its best after it sheds its GI6S intro and moves to the nitty gritty details of smuggling. The movie feels at home at sea where everything is calculated and ordered, but while on land, the movie is always bizarre, violent and out of control. This lends for some really angular story telling that keeps the movie exciting and interesting. On the whole it's a good action movie and if you liked Mark Wahlberg’s previous movies like the Italian Job and Shooter, you will also like this.

worth the time to pickup and watch

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

this movie is remake of the icelandic movie and stars mark wahlberg and chris farraday, an expert smuggler who went straight after a stint in jail. chris gets sucked back into the business when his brother in law andy (calen landry jones) becomes indebted to a gangster named tim briggs (giovanni ribisi). briggs makes it clear that andy won't survive unless he comes up with $700,000. briggs also tells chris that he and his wife, kate (kate beckinsale), are on the hook for the debt, regardless of what happens to andy. although chris wants to stay on the right side of the law, he knows the only way to raise the cash is a return to smuggling. so, he hatches a plan to transfer $10 million in counterfeit bills from panama to the us. this is a great movie to pickup with lots of action in this movie.

Review For: Contraband (DVD, 2012)

I liked the previews of movie and I like Mark Wahlberg's in your face character. (As Always). The movie has continuous action and subplots. The language was a little harsh, but the kind of people who were involved and where it was located, make it easier to overlook. (Not for children) I'd buy it again, no questions asked. Great movie, great action, and some twisted humor.
