Excerpt: I went into this film not expecting much from the reviews and I enjoyed it. Is it a must see? No. It is worth watching though if you enjoy this kind of film or Mark Wahlberg movies in general.
Excerpt: An ex-smuggler-gone-straight-family man Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) must pay for the sins of his foolish brother-in-law Andy (Caleb Jones) who gets tangled up with Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), a vicious drug dealer.
Excerpt: I don´t understand how some guys can give 4 or 5 stars to the PQ of these movie! So, you will give 8 or 9 stars to "2001...", "The Avengers" , etc ???? Sometimes you just barely see something in the screen. I have an Infocus IN81 and it is a great projector! But movies like this looks like a DVD !!!
Excerpt: Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) has quit being a smuggler. His wife's Kate (Kate Beckinsale) brother Andy (Caleb Landry Jones) smuggled drugs and mobster Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi) wants this to be settled.
Summary: I thought this movie was really good. I like how the movie wasn't just filmed from the main character's camera. It was more philosophical than most action-adventure movies. very good. The ending was good as well.
Excerpt: Mark Wahlberg is on my top 10 actors of all time list for a reason, no not solely on his acting skills which are a tad just above average in my books it's becuase he #1 picks only from the coolest of scripts #2 has a very cool presence on screen expecially as a tough guy.
Excerpt: Synopsis: After his brother-in-law, Andy, botches the drug-smuggling job mobster Tim Biggs hired him to do, Chris Farraday - a clean-living ex-smuggler - takes on one last job in order to keep Biggs from coming after him and his family to settle Andy's score.
Summary: There's a lot of intriguing heist action going on in this thriller, which is more explosive than inventive. The acting elevates the buy-the-books material a bit, particularly a chameleon-like performance from Giovanni Ribisi and the always-great Ben Foster.
Excerpt: Contraband spins the classic tale of a man who lives a life of crime, gets out but is sucked back in because a friend or family member is in deep and only the person who lived the life before can save them.
