Film Noir Feel

Although obviously in color,Contraband has the look and feel of a 1940's crime melodrama. And that's a good thing! Wahlberg is convincing as the everyman caught in the middle, and the well paced action triumphs over the considerable amount of suspended disbelief required to stay connected to the plot. Worth a couple of hours.

Loved the cast in this movie. Highly entertaining, gripping your seat, heart stopping and fast paste--don't know what's coming next.

Mark Wahlberg is at it again in his latest movie "Contraband." He plays Chris Farraday who has to go back to his old profession in order to protect his brother-in-law from a ruthless drug lord played by Giovanni Ribisi (Tim Briggs). In order to get him in safe hands, he must go to Panama for one last mission in order to get his money in return. Ben Foster (Sebastian Abney) who we saw in "The Mechanic", plays a great role which will leave you stunned at the end. This is a great movie for anyone who into action, crime, and drama! Lukas Haas (Danny Raymer), Robert Wahlberg (John Bryce), Kate Beckinsale (Kate Farraday), and Kent Jude Bernard (Tommy Raymer) are also in this movie. Basically, the whole plot of the movie is how far you would go to protect your family? I enjoyed this flick, and i always enjoy seeing Wahlberg on the big screen. Go see it, but it is not for children. Blood and Profanity are throughout the movie. Good way to spend two hours! Don't listen to the critics!

It's full of action but also had a little humor with a great twist that I didn't see coming. It was very clever. It's not for kids but mostly because of the language. It wasn't as violent as I thought it was gonna be but obviously did have some. I wanna see it again!
