New ‘Contraband’ Movie Delivered Great Action,Drama & Wild Twists
New ‘Contraband’ movie delivered great action,drama & wild twists. Universal Pictures recently released their new action/thriller flick “Contraband” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and I thought it was pretty good as Mark Wahlberg delivered some pretty intense,action-filled,suspenseful scenes. The movie stars: Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Foster, Giovanni Ribisi, Caleb Landry Jones, Lukas Haas, Diego Luna,and J.K. Simmons.
In the flick,character Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) gets forced back into a life of crime after his brother-in-law Andy messes up a drug deal for his crazy,ruthless boss Tim Briggs. So, Chris has to do what he does best,and run a mega contraband to smuggle in millions of counterfeit bills to pay the debt. He quickly assembles a crew to head on over to Panama City to do the job.
Things run smoothly at first,but unfortunately, Andy screwed up again,and puts Chris in a difficult position of helping a psycho pull off an armored truck heist. When that plan goes to hell, Chris quickly finds himself dodging tons of police bullets in hopes of still escaping from this mess.
He and his partner somehow make it out,alive,and with the cash to boot. But this was just the beginning as Chris had to deal with the twisting fact that his best friend Sebastian Abney betrayed him,and his wife was in danger,all while trying to dump the money and drugs in a place that security agents couldn’t search and find them.
All of this crazy action led up to a huge conclusion that had Chris duping the hell out of the man he was trying to smuggle money and drugs for,and beating the hell out of his backstabbing,supposed,best friend.
All in all, I really got into the flick,and enjoyed watching it. It was filled with enough twists and turns to last a lifetime,and fun to see what was going to happen,next. I think Mark Wahlberg did a great job. He always seems to do a good job with these action-type films. It almost sort of reminded me of him when he was in the “Italian Job” flick back in 2003. I gave the movie a solid B+ grade. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
