Contraband (2012)

"What would you hide to protect your family, what would you do to save them. When you  want to clear yourself from your past work, it is never easy, you face consequences and extreme measures"

A popular name Mark Wahlberg, is sweeped with a character of both a loving husband and father and a hard ass criminal. He did pretty well in providing the pace and tension needed for such a generic action film.

But it's very hard to forget him in "The Other Guys"

"The last job" story line is has always been a straight forward story and this film delivers the same concept and flow. 

A man with a sinful past ( Wahlberg) decides to throw everything behind after this last job finds it harder to accomplish den thought when the people he work for and work against starts to come at him and his family.

Film felt draggy at some scenes and some were a little bit tense.

Nothing fancy or special, a few explosions here and there.

Brings up the tension of a sweaty action film without the CGs and flying swords.

Soundtrack was not very nice.

It's so typical and predictable because it's very basic and it's basic done best.

You cant expect every movie to be flashy and full of manly explosion right? 

Mark was probably the only character in the movie with the most "FML" look, every turn some shit happens.

Wrapping it up:

It takes someone with low expectation to enjoy the show, think too much, and the plot holes will show. People who enjoy explosions and sweaty fights would not mind watching it. No handsome stars, just a hot chick.

It's better to enjoy it at home, there WERE a few tense up scenes but still..... i leave it to you to decide.

Rating: 2/5

Watchable rating: 2.5/5

Critic Mode:

" The scenes were very imaginative , its like a dream of drugs and shit, unrealistic. If stuff like this happens, you are dreaming.".benjaminfoo of

wahlberg's acting has always been like this. when he's giving the WTF face, it's him not giving an effort to perform
