Story line reminded us once again that government officials and politicians just can't be trusted. Mark Wahlberg did the same role as in other movies, but Russell Crowe did do a nice change by being the crooked politician. Maybe better to rent than see in theaters.

The storyline is actually well conceived. It's the screenplay that puts you to sleep. It's one of those films where there is no suspense. It tries to deliver on this upper level detective drama and it just falls flat. Waste of talent and time. Rent Contraband instead.

The movie stared off way too slow and at times a bit confusing. It took an hour for some real action to kick in, but even after that it fizzled. Not worth my time, for I found myself thinking that I could have been watching something else at the theater.

A very solid crime thriller, with terrific performances from everyone in the cast.
Lots of twists that, though at times made the plot convoluted, were no less fun and surprising in some cases.
It was great to see Catherine Zeta-Jones back and in fine form, vamping it up as Hostettler's (sp?) wife.
It's a very good movie. Go see it!
