Contraband * Baltasar Kormákur (2012)

For some reason I connected the title of this film with some near Eastern production. When I heard music from the trailer (without the images) I thought that it would be a hip near Eastern production. Unfortunately “Contraband” is just another Hollywood action thriller crime movie. John Bryce (Mark Wahlberg) is a top-notch ex-smuggler, but when his nephew mucks up a job of his own, John feels forced to take one more job to set the balance again. Of course things do not go as expected and a predictable story unfolds in which John has to take more extreme jobs to make right what went wrong. Just another Hollywood film, but of an Icelandic director.
