MOVIE REVIEW: CONTRABAND (Baltasar Kormakur, 2012)


This was another action thriller starring Mark Wahlberg that was so hard to distinguish from his past movie Shooter. He basically sleepwalked through the role and gave one of his laziest performances since The Happening.

I also drew the line on movies that depict gratuitous violence on women. Poor Kate Beckinsale endured a never-ending round of slaps and gut punches that didn’t really mean much, except to make her look pitiful. Talk about desperation.

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆
