Contraband Reviews:

Contraband is a paint by numbers action/thriller. It would be simple to pick on everything that this film wasn't, but can you blame chicken nuggets for being chicken nuggets? With a rookie screenwriter at the helm, the script suffers from a mash-up of cliché's. They begin with "One last heist" and end with "If you wish to save your family you'll do as you're told". There were many déjà-vu moments of been there and done that.The star power was strong, but given so very tiny to work with in the method of hero back story. All the characters were two dimensional representations of stereotypes. The territories (New Orleans & Panama) were interesting choices but never really quite fit. While the film wasn't action packed, it moved at a nice pace and kept my interest the entire time. The movie work was solid as a whole. There was one particular action sequence that takes zone around the halfway tag that was done very well.If you have a craving that only chicken nuggets will satisfy, then I think you will come away fairly happy. Not a necessity to see on the large screen, but that supports it a little. Leave your thinking cap outside, that's the contraband that will hold you from enjoying this as it was intended.


Contraband begins like "Gone in 60 Seconds", but instead of boosting vehicles it's about smuggling contraband, and like GI6S it's because of an idiot younger brothers and familial responsibilities that brings an ex-criminal/smuggler out of retirement for that one last job. Chris our smuggler protagonist is deemed the Houdini of smuggling but in reality, he's a general super bad-ass who can talk fast, kick ass and smuggle at superhero levels. We are then treated to the Tag Wahlberg present where it's difficult to imagine anything adverse event to him and we just go along with the ride.The film is at its greatest after it sheds its GI6S intro and moves to the nitty gritty features of smuggling. The film feels at home at sea where everything is calculated and ordered, but while on land, the film is everytime bizarre, violent and out of control. This lends for some really angular storytelling that keeps the film exciting and interesting.It's nice to see Kate Beckinsdale in the films again though she plays the wife whose main role is to look nice and be in distress, a far cry from her iconic Underworld Selene or from her last film Whiteout.On the entire it's a nice action film and if you liked Tag Wahlberg's previous films like the Italian Job and Shooter, you will also like this.


Directing 6/10- Some special and intriguing shots, but nothing too rememberable Acting 8.5/10- The acting is the genre that without a doubt, stole the show. Solid efforts from the whole cast but the movie really benefited from tremendous performances from Ribisi and Landry Jones. Screenplay 4/10- The screenplay is fun no doubt and benefits from decent pacing and a several intense action sequences but the movie lacks originality, stealing ideas and at times, lines. Visual results 5/10- The visual results were average. I can't fully fault a movie for not using unnecessary visuals. Sound effects/Music 5/10- The sound results were fine, nothing misplaced there. The melody was again just OK, sometimes the melody was nice and mixed well with the action going on but in some the haunting/emotional scenes the melody didn't create the stage 'better', which is what it could do. Overall, the movie is just other forgettable action film. The movie has decent enough storyline (though cliché), with nice acting and some fun action sequences that create the movie at least worth a viewing.
