Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Contraband, while often grungy and far-fetched, does keep you watching. And in January, that's recommendation enough.
Austin Chronicle - Marjorie Baumgarten
Contraband is a tidy little thriller that makes up in execution what it lacks in originality.
Boston Globe - Wesley Morris
I don't know that a lot of Contraband makes sense. But I'm not sure that it has to. The director Baltasar Kormákur carries the movie off with efficiency, brutality, and humor.
Village Voice - Nick Pinkerton
No one, however, could mistake Contraband for anything but what it is: a shift-job genre movie - not a bad day's work, content to match the blocky trudge of its star rather than attempt panache.
The Hollywood Reporter - Todd McCarthy
The lead role of a working class former smuggler who dirties his hands again to save his family fits Mark Wahlberg like a glove.

Contraband (2012)

When his brother-in-law runs afoul of a drug lord, family man Chris Farraday turns to a skill he abandoned long ago – smuggling – to repay the debt. But the job goes wrong, and Farraday finds himself wanted by cops, crooks and killers alike.
