Mark Wahlberg leads the cast of Contraband, a fast-paced thriller about a man trying to stay out of a world he worked so hard to leave behind and the family he'll do anything to protect. Set in New Orleans, the film explores the cutthroat underground world of international smuggling-full of desperate criminals and corrupt officials, high-stakes and big payoffs-where loyalty rarely exists and death is one wrong turn away.

Chris Farraday (Wahlberg) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best-running contraband-to settle Andy's debt. Chris is a legendary smuggler and quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian (Ben Foster), to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills.

Things quickly fall apart and with only hours to reach the cash, Chris must use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become their target.

Mark Wahlberg adds another remake to his CV. Contraband is directed by Baltersa Kormakur who also produced and starred in the original version Euro-thriller original called Reykjavik-Rotterdam. Wahlberg's a former smuggler coaxed into one last job, which goes predictably awry ( and at time rather implausable as who could rob an armoured truck while waiting for their ferry connection?). But the film is very well acted with stand out turns from Ben Foster and a very seedy Giovanni Ribisi. The film has plenty of tension and some excellent action sequences that lead al the way to a very tense climax that features the worlds loudest mobile phone ( I don't know about you but sometimes I cannot hear my mobile going off in my pocket, never mind hear one over industrial machinary?) It's no classic and nothing new, but with Contraband is a well directed and very enjoyable thriller that leads to a good evenings entertainment.

'chris farraday' has long since gone legitimate, he has a successful business installing security equipment, he used to do drug-runs, no more'..................until.....his brother-in-law on a drug run is forced to dump his cargo, leaving the local drug-baron out of pocket.
to keep 'kate's( chris's' wife ) brother out of more bother than he can deal with, 'chris' agree's to do one more run to balace his brother-in-laws' dept.
whilst on the trip, the drug-baron threatens 'chris's' family, it now gets personal.
with plenty of double-crossing and action this is a movie worth a spin.

 DESPERATION AND DECEIT

This impressed me a lot,enough action to keep the interest,great storyline and top acting.
This family man,leaving his criminal past behind is forced back into it when his brother in-law bothces a deal.
Things get heavy very soon and he realizes he has to get togeher a gang he can trust to help pull off one major job.
There's a quite a bit of backstabbing as the film goes one and you are left wondering just who can be trusted and who's in on what.
Okay,it's over the top,but it's done in impressive style. Maybe it's not the most original,but it's great entertainment,leaving me satisfied.

 Enjoyable

Can't say I hate many movies that star Mark Walhberg and this is no exception. Really enjoyable movie which keeps you guessing on the first time of watching. Good all round performances from the cast and Ribsi is excellent. I have added it to my collection. Good storyline.
