DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - This is a violent action film aimed at a young adult audience. This is a showcase for star Mark Wahlberg and not so much his co-star Kate Beckinsale. Frequent language and strong violence make the film too intense for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's a forgettable time-waster that will be seen more because of a lack of viable options at the multiplex than because it warrants an investment of anyone's time or money.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'Contraband' involves a lot of energy, but I'm getting tired of violent retreads of these heist elements.

USA Today Full Review
Average Contraband has a few moments of tension, but it adheres to a predictable heist formula hardly worth trafficking in.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Legendary smuggler Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) had abandoned his life of crime to settle into a life of comfortable domesticity with his wife and their two young sons. But after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does better than anyone - running contraband - to settle Andy's debt.

With the help of his best friend, Sebastian Abney (Ben Foster), Chris quickly assembles a crew that includes their childhood friend Danny Raymer (Lukas Haas) to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills. They must pull this off under the suspicious eyes of the ship's captain (J.K. Simmons), whose long history with Chris' father makes him suspect the younger Farraday of even shadier dealings.

Things quickly fall apart, and with only hours to reach the cash, Chris must use his skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal Panamanian drug runners such as Gonzalo (Diego Luna), cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and his sons become their target.
