Contraband is an action thriller about international smuggling.
Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) left behind his criminal past in international smuggling world to concentrate on his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and 2 kids and set up his own business setting up alarm systems. After his wife’s brother messes up a drug smuggling deal the owners of the shipment put him in hospital and threaten to kill him. This forces Chris to do another run to pay back for the missing shipment.
He sets up one last run to smuggle in sheets of fake money but things don’t exactly go to plan and he is double-crossed by family and close friends.
Overall, I found Contraband to be a very enjoyable and watchable film. The storyline was great and was very well acted. With twists along the way it was definitely worth the time watching it. A good action thriller.
