Film review: 'Contraband'

Las Vegas Weekly
11 January 2012
  • Excerpt: When will movie criminals learn that you can’t pull one last job? Clearly Contraband ’s former smuggler Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) has not taken that particular lesson to heart, since he agrees to get back into the game for one final haul in order to pull his moronic brother-in-law out of a jam.

  • Conclusion: It’s not exactly put-your-manicurist-on-danger-money time, and Kate Beckinsale’s role is shamefully underwritten (especially for an actress capable of carrying a franchise), but Contraband is a cut above cookie-cutter heist thrillers, and director Baltasar Kormákur looks ready for the big time.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
23 February 2012
  • Excerpt: "Contraband" doesn't move along at a great speed of knots, but contains plenty of drama and thrills. For the most part, the story takes place on a ship, and the environment is a not often seen and interesting place. The hand-held camera style is distracting, regularly zooming in and out of focus.

  • Conclusion: Det er sjældent at et Hollywood-remake af en mindre udenlandsk produktion faktisk er lavet af de samme folk, der stod for originalen. Michael Haneke gjorde det med Funny Games, men det var mere en rekreation end en genfortolkning.

tros kompas
25 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Remake van de IJslandse film ‘Reykjavik-Rotterdam’, geregisseerd door de hoofdrolspeler van het origineel. Ondanks het grotere budget en het imposante rijtje acteurs maakt de film minder indruk. Vooral de actiescènes missen vaart en spanning.
