Its an o.k. two hour time killer. If you like wahlberg thats enough. Far- fetched plot. Keep an open mind and ********** it.

MarkWahlberg could have written this himself as the plot jumps from scene to scene like a wish list of bad ass. Then toss in his wife just to make it more fun and it cements the deal literally. A 10 year old could have written this plot. No stars!

Very entertaining! Ribisi over played his character somewhat, but a solid performance by Wahlberg.

So super complicated (implausible?) that in the wrong hands it would be laughable. Instead, this very gritty bit of greased action does a decent job of shaking the sluggish out of January. Full Review
Contraband has a few moments of tension, but it adheres to a predictable heist formula hardly worth trafficking in. Full Review
Wall Street Journal
It's a genre film, not great art, though there's a good joke about art - a pricey piece of action painting, appropriately enough - but it's a thoroughly satisfying entertainment, and, in this season of lowered expectations, a nice surprise. Full Review
This solid if disposable genre exercise maintains a hard-driving line of action and a commitment to one-damned-thing-after-another storytelling that carries it past any number of narrative speedbumps and preposterous detours. Full Review

The absurdity of the story in the largely thrill-free thriller Contraband, its hairpin twists and outrageous coincidences, may keep even hungry action fans away. That's too bad because the story doesn't matter. (It rarely does.) Full Review
