Writer: Aaron Guzikowski

Actors: Mark Wahlberg, Kate Bechinsale, Giovanni Ribisi,

Photography: Barry Ackroyd



"Contraband" is an action movie that does not need a lot of thinking to watch. In it, Mark Wahlberg is like Arnold Schwarzenegger – he fights against the evil of the day.

The movie is not great and some of the bad things in "Contraband" are Mark Wahlberg's fault.  He's got no expression on his face, he seems to be always angry because he always has a frown.

The actors in the movie are talented. And Giovanni Ribisi (Lost in Translation) and Diego Luna ( Y Tu Mama Tambien) did a good job in other movies. But in this action movie, they seem like cats, not tigers.

"Contraband" is a regular film and when you start watching it, you will know what will happen. It is easy to predict. The movie uses Mark Wahlberg to make a lot of money but it does not add anything new to the history of action movies.

If you want to go to the cinema and watch a good action movie, do not waste your time on “Contraband.” Go buy a ticket to see "The Guest."
