Contraband (2012) Rated R

ContrabandA former smuggler takes on last job to protect his brother-in-law. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Foster, Giovanni Ribisi, Lukas Haas, Diego Luna, J.K. Simmons

This film is a remake of the Icelandic film, Reykjavík-Rotterdam. The director, Baltasar Kormákur was the star of that film. He does a good job with this film. Mark Wahlberg and Giovanni Ribisi are both exceptional in this film. Of course, Wahlberg could play this role, like the back of his hand. Although, there are plot issues and generalizations of heist films, it’s an effective film for a movie night. It certainly has good action for those that enjoy it. It’s worth a watch.
