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.
It is a good action type movie, with some twists to the plot. The plot couuld be better. So many thing going on I lost what the story is about, and why they there was so much killing.
