Bad guy turned good for wife and kids having to do one last run to save and protect his family. It's as old a story as the heist movie itself...but Whalberg, Foster, Ribisi and Beckinsale do a fantastic job of making it enjoyable.
Contraband has a few twists and turns, some of which you may guess, others you may not. I wouldn't say you must see this movie this weekend, but if you are in the mood to see a good enjoyable movie on a Sunday afternoon I would definitely recommend it.
Mark Whalberg plays the protagonist, Giovanni Ribisi is the antagonist, Kate Beckinsale is Whalberg's wife and Ben Foster plays Whalberg's best friend. This is Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur's biggest US movie yet, and he does a great job with a great cast.
