    Aquele tipo de filme que será esquecido em pouquíssimo tempo e que iguais a ele saem vários todos os anos. Pode até divertir, mas tem roteiro fraco, forçado e esburacado e exige uma boa vontade enorme do espectador. Só não entendo porque um ator tão interessante quanto Ben Foster ainda se envolve em projetos como este.

    This was actually surprisingly a really well written film. I brought this on DVD for about 90p so I wasn't expecting much so having this is mind it actually surprised me. With its twists and turns it did keep me on the edge of my seat. A decent action film that's cleverly written too.

    Twisty, stereotypical, guns, above average.

    OK, I wasn’t expecting all that much from this. I heard it was OK on a podcast and they had it at my video store (on discount day) so I thought I’d give it a watch. It wasn’t all that compelling a story but it did have a few things going for it. It has a lot of great supporting actors. There’s the dad from “Juno” (J.K. Simmons); there’s also Diego Luna (the guy from “Y Tu Mama Tabien”). And…

    This movie was pretty bad in my humble opinion. Sometimes I wonder why certain movies are made and why actors would agree to these roles. "Contraband," doesn't introduce anything new to the action genre and follows the cliches as if they were written directly into the script.

    Mark Wahlberg is the lead and I would't say his acting talent is terrible by any means, I just thought he would be above these types of roles. In this day and age…

    Interesting film, good performances from Wahlberg, Beckinsale and Ribisi and a cool cliche filled action thriller.....

    I wish Mark Wahlberg could smuggle those two hours of my life back.

    No surprises here. Just a run-of-the-mill Hollywood film. Nobody has to stretch their acting muscles and the writing is full of clichés, but does just about enough to not make you give up on it.

    The only thing this movie has going for it, beyond the phenomenal casting, is novelty of subject matter--I can't name one other movie that's essentially a procedural on international marine cargo smuggling. In fact I'm only rewatching it now because I have some business lately with an international marine cargo company. Otherwise it's simply "Gone in 60 Seconds" on a freight liner, with one of that cast recycled. That trick with the salt is old school. But I bet it still goes on.
