This movie was a incredible story about a smuggler. I loved this movie and how the plot develops and changes. It was very well done and it never failed to entertain. Mark Wahlberg did a phenomenal job and was perfect for this movie, i would say that this is one of the best movies of the year in my book, i would highly recommended.

Editors Note
Note A former smuggler from New Orleans faces ruthless drug lords, vicious criminals, corrupt officials, and trigger-happy hit men after getting back into the business to help his brother-in-law settle a deadly debt. When it came to transporting illicit goods under treacherous circumstances, Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) used to be the best in the business. But all of that changed when he chose to give up his life of crime to start a family with Kate (Kate Beckinsale). Chris learns that leaving his past behind is easier said than done, however, after Kate's brother Andy (Caleb Landry Jones) goes to work for ferocious drug lord Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), and drops the ball on a major deal. Now, in order to set things right, Chris must smuggle millions of dollars in counterfeit bills from Panama into the United States. And if anything goes wrong, Tim will target his entire family for death. With his best friend Sebastian (Ben Foster) by his side and a crackerjack crew along for the ride, Chris heads to Panama for one last job. Later, with time running out and a treacherous maze of desperate criminals to navigate, the job gets complicated, and Chris must race to reach his family before Tim gets to them first. Lukas Haas, Diego Luna, and J.K. Simmons co-star.
Wall Street Journal "This is an uncommonly well-crafted action adventure..." 01/13/2012
Los Angeles Times "Wahlberg has a way of making lethal look neighborly and necessary, which he does here....Those qualities go a long way to keep CONTRABAND afloat." 01/13/2012
Hollywood Reporter "[I]nvolving, atmospherically grungy....The camerawork remains alert and alive to the alarming events that punctuate the characters' lives with all-too-frequent regularity." 01/11/2012
Movieline "[A]n obligingly tense, scruffy addition to the one-last-crime genre." 01/12/2012
Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "This Americanized version of the 2008 Nordic thriller REJKJAVIK ROTTERDAM transfers the original's gritty, violent action into an entertaining and intense starring role for Mark Wahlberg..." 01/12/2011
A.V. Club "[The] Mark Wahlberg smuggling drama CONTRABAND benefits from elegant simplicity." 01/12/2012
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Amid all the grain and grit, Ribisi's colourful villain is as splashy as any Pollack painting, and his unhinged, ratty turn adrenalises the picture." 04/01/2012
Sight and Sound "[A] watchably unpretentious yarn as unassuming as its blue-collar hero." 04/01/2012
