"You think you're the only guy with a fucking gun?"

Critics and audiences alike have slammed Contraband for its unoriginality and the so-called 'convoluted plot'. I personally loved the film. Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, Contraband is based on the Icelandic film, Reykjavík-Rotterdam, which Kormákur starred in. This is a visceral thriller jam-packed with nail biting set pieces. ... read more

"I've got to try and fix this. Trust me, I know what I'm doing."

American remakes of foreign films are almost always something to be dreaded, but Contraband is a surprising exception to the rule. Perhaps this is because the movie was directed and produced by Baltasar Kormákur, who starred in and produced the Icelandic flick Reykjavik-Rotterdam on which Contraband is based.

The script was quite weak on this one. I still believe this is overrated at 6.6 on IMDB, will eventually go below the 6 I guess. Never expected it to be this cheesy as a plot and the acting was quite bad at times.

"A really dull predictable movie. The only interesting tidbit will be to see how he organizes the ending in order to make sure the getaway and loot is clean. Can't even say there is any good chase scenes or violences as these type of movies usually contain. If you like looking at Kate and Mark, I suppose that would be the only reason to watch but even then it's a stretch. Generally disappointed given the type of movie this would normally be."

"It's just tired and lame. The fact that the movie tries to pretend it's a TOTAL BADASS just makes it more repulsive. Oh, and hi-fives to Mark Wahlberg and Giovanni Ribisi for both appearing in two of the shittiest movies of the year together. Good thinkin' guys."

" viewed: November 16, 2012 I think it's a very good movie. I love Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale and action movies like this. Always something going on, and the end was great. All interesting and imaginative, in the style of "The Italian Job". I enjoyed it."
