It's more entertaining than your average action thriller and boasts some great performances, but that isn't enough to excuse Contraband's lack of originality and unnecessarily convoluted plot.

I'm also torn between 3 & 4 stars. The acting was good and for the first time I appreciated Wahlberg as an actor, however it was a bit far fetched at times such as the ending (I wont spoil it for anyone but the bit with the cement rescue and the phone call - completely unrealistic..)

I did enjoy it and found it engaging, but feel I would soon forget about it and can't imagine watching it again.

The original movie, with less resources, but more grip and bite could put some danger in your nails budget.
