Contraband Storyline: 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 got involved with Briggs, a drug dealer and when he blew a deal, Briggs demands restitution which he can't deliver. So Chris offers to find a way to pay Briggs but then 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.

Reviews
I saw this movie twice..so bad...I forgot I saw it the first time.
This movie is so so forgettable, that I forgot I saw it. I was at the local library and saw the movie on a three day 'special'. I thought wow, that looks good. Took it home started watching, had a sense of deja vu, then enlightenment, "hey I saw this turkey". Just about two months ago.

I forgot about it because of: lack of character development, funky lighting(too dark to see movie), jump camera edits and cuts, predictable plot(s), common chase scenes, nothing new or original, use of filters and lighting to cover up it was shot in VIDEO!

Everyone knows the lame plot, Chris' brother-in-law (Danny) is a total incompetent crook, makes a mistake, so Chris(Walhberg) has to cover for him by getting the money back to release his brother. Misc plots of disloyalty, crazy drug dealers, corrupt sea Captain, and other forgettable shenanigans fill in the boring spots and Chris has to go to South America and leaves his family behind to be tormented by Ribsi and Sebastian.

Ribsi (Tim Briggs) has such an annoying accident he should have been shot as soon as he opened his mouth in his first scene when he said he wouldn't comprise and wait for his money. Solution? Bam! right in the head. As a guy who lives in a cheap apt high rise, with a beautiful daughter, isn't much of a dealer anyway.

Gosh, I can't remember one scene of this hyper kinetic flick.

But, you can watch 52 Pick Up, with Roy Scheider. Watch the 'projector booth' scene. It is great writing, of course by Elmore Leonard. Better yet read my review of 52 Pickup a masterpiece of noir. Let's be honest here, the two best writers we have on Earth are Shakespeare and Elmore Leonard.

I can only hope I don't 'forget' it again and find it in a video store for 50 cents and think "Hey that looks good, it has Wahlberg in it". Only to discover that I have seen it twice before.

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.

One of Mark's Best
From the very beginning to the dramatic end, the movie is thrilling. There is not a scene in the movie which drags the story and every bit is to a point. His acting is simple, on point and brilliant as usual and this is one of the best smuggling films i would add to, after Italian job and various others make to a good list. The fact that it brings family, friendship, love, hate, betrayal and the usual bad guy in the film may make it sound all ordinary as most of the films have almost the same characters these days, but the reason i would ask you guys to watch this film is because the touch it has unlike most of them out these days.

I don't think timing is any bit of a problem in this movie and the way in which the scenes unfold is what i think keep you at the edge of your seat through the movie. Anywhoo, A must watch! I loved it personally.

Predictable fun
Most of the movie is predictable. You can spot characters and their motivation a mile (or more) ahead. But this still is quite a lot of fun. And I do wonder why nobody had put Ben Foster and Giovanni Ribisi in a movie before. Mark Wahlberg is the star, but those two are reliable "side-kicks" (or whatever you want to call them). Kate Beckinsale is underused in my book, but I'm still happy every time I see her (saw her in the Total Recall trailer).

The movie has enough action but also quite a few flaws (like a character beat where Mark Wahlberg is encouraging and giving out the wrong signals to another character), but if you enjoy light thriller fun/action, you will have a good time with this. The end might turn a bit too dark for some, but it still holds up to its promises

Awful
In a word, horrible. The film has a predictable action, evil gets it, everything ends well and Mark Wahlberg something stronger than Chuck Norris.

Who wrote the script i do not think has more than 12 years, like when the police get to the captain house,arrested him and the two criminals when captain could simply say "No sir,everything is OK" or criminals could threaten him to keep quiet. Or Biggs which goes every 10 minutes and threatened his wife Faradday. Everything seems so hair pulled and fake.

I think it's the worst film I've seen of Kate Beckinsale,i don't understand how could she accept to play in such a miserable,2 penny, movie.

HATED this movie.Slow, poor acting and writing.
I was stuck for a film to see today so thought I'd go for this as had seen some good reviews.

I was wary as I really don't think Mark Whalberg is a good actor. He's not had professional training and it shows in my opinion, in all his films I've seen. He lacks emotional depth and it's almost acting by numbers. People who just 'turn to' acting do not have the necessary foundation skills to craft and hone over time as they've not studied it professionally. I know some people will disagree with my comments.

I could not empathise or sympathise with ANY of these characters. The story is based in the drugs culture with Whalberg's character almost glamorising drug/money smuggling. Certainly no moral ethics are seen here. I couldn't have cared less if his wife got buried in concrete in a plastic bag with her mobile phone to be honest. How can you sympathise with characters who are so caught up in their needs being met through a life of crime without even thinking of the impact of their behaviours and actions on others? Whalberg appears very bored right the way through. I don't know if anyone saw him on the Graham Norton show, but he said he was tired and couldn't be bothered on that too and it showed. Perhaps he needs to retire now? The rest of the cast were very average. The direction was unremarkable as were the action scenes.

I came out of the cinema just as the credits started to roll and felt angry that I'd sat through something which ultimately gave the message that drug crime pays. Try telling that to those of us who have or have had relatives who are hooked on the stuff and the shear hell it causes everyone else around them.

Hated this film with avengence.

Very Typical Action with a Story more Complicated than it needs to be,
Contraband is a very mediocre movie with an average storyline and a decent cast. It's simply a very typical action thriller, it's nothing more than that, it never try's to be anything more, the cast knew what is was and because of that they delivered very uninspired performances, there is nothing that makes this movie special or different whatsoever. I did think it had some good tense scenes that the movie needed more of, parts that got the audience nervous and anxious, those were certainly the best parts, I think the scene towards the beginning between Mark Wahlberg and Giovanni Ribisi was one of the best parts as we got to see the actors shine and it was quite intense. The films plot is definitely the weakest aspect of this, it starts off so simple that your brain isn't bothered to pay too much attention to it, and eventually becomes so convoluted that you can't keep up, it all comes together at the end but I was certainly scratching my head for a while. It's not terrible, but there is nothing special or unique about Contraband, which I think every movie should be in some way, and because of that I wouldn't recommend it.

When his brother in law falls in debt with a murderous drug lord, a former smuggler returns to a life of crime.

Best Performance: Mark Wahlberg Worst Performance: Kate Beckinsale

totally predicted and targeted to the wrong crowd
I don't know where to begin with this. I love action flicks, dramas, suspense and anything that involves heists, drug stuff or any of that kind of gist as a movie fan I just love, so this was right up my ally all the way. More so the main actor I've grown to like, so I thought this was a slam dunk, shockingly so not true...

Honestly I though the plot while fairly straight forward was telegraphed a mile away and only the mentally challenged doused with a a six pack, a dose of meth-amphetamines and a broken weegie board could get confused about. At about a 1/3 of the way into it you start to ask yourself is anybody not double crossing this guy and is this not blatantly clear?

Far as some redeeming qualities At some points it makes a stab at being something noteworthy but more or less it's you following the ball along an easily laid out path which unfortunately makes it rather boring.

Final thoughts... I'm blown away, here is a movie which ranks decent far as every type of movie I should aught to like, so I should have liked it in almost every sense... In the end I guess me being a father with young kids of my own or what I don't know but I'm calling BS on this whole damn gig... I really hope someone with some brains reads this and hears it. We "guys" who dig on action flicks do so because it takes us away from reality, not into it. Those of us who may know a glimpse of that life with families and kids wouldn't even dare take a step back into that world let alone for some POS brother in law who dug his own grave. End of game...

Bad and telegraphed story, less than memorable performances by all actors even the main character, and a lukewarm story which left me rooting for the snobby ship captain because I'd simply seen him in something else and remember liking either him or his character but not enough to remember what it was aught to tell you all you need to know...

Biggest disappointment of 2012,
It speaks poorly of today's moviegoers that anyone would rate this turkey higher than 3. The continuity, photography, lighting, and direction are atrocious. The story makes no sense; and the screen is too dark to see much of anything 20% of the time.

I like Mark Walberg, and I just love Kate Beckensale; but I challenge anyone to tell us what she was wearing in ANY of her many scenes. The photography was so bad, and the choppy camera-hop was like an ADD kid was running things.

This one played and died quickly in theaters, so we caught it on DVD. It cost us $1.60 for the rental' 80 cents each. This movie is not worth 80 cents.

Mark Walberg is Great in Intense Contraband
Contraband is a well-made action film with strong acting, good directing, and great cinematography that draws you into New Orleans, Panama, and their freight ship. Mark Walberg plays a man pulled back into his smuggling past to right the wrongs of his naive brother-in-law and protect his family.

Mark Walberg is excellent as the lead character. He is strong in the action scenes on his smuggling trip to Panama , and he is just as good in dramatic scenes calling his wife to help her back home. He is a strong protagonist who is likable and draws a lot of empathy as he tries to fight the bad guys and save his family.

Walberg is supported by a strong cast. Giovannis Ribisi does well as a dirty, corrupt smuggler who terrorizes his family, Ben Foster is excellent as Walberg's recovering addict and alcoholic ex-smuggling parter who struggles to do the right thing. And, Kate Beckinsale is great as Walberg's wife, who also must fight to protect her family.

The director does a great job of building intensity throughout the film. He brings the audience into the smuggling trade in a realistic and believable manner. And, the director effectively engages the audience in the drama and action at three locations simultaneously as the film builds to its resolution back in New Orleans.

Overall, the film is a strong action film. If you dismiss the standard plot and some lapses of reality, you'll enjoy the intense action, strong acting, and great scenery. Catch Contraband in the theaters to enjoy it on the big screen.

Just be careful about smuggling your own candy into the theater.
