Default 'Contraband' - High-Def Digest Review

David Krauss has reviewed 'Contraband.' He says this will never be listed as one of Mark Wahlberg's finest, but it's an entertaining, nicely executed adventure yarn. With solid video and audio, and a decent array of supplements, this is a worthy rental.

I agree with the review on this one. Not a total P.O.S. that it appeared to be, but it wasn't anything we haven't already seen a dozen times already. I'll pass on this one though, no need to own this movie.

What can be considered highlights for his career? I mean, Max Payne and that one about the brothers who are cops are just awful movies. Shooter, while not bad, is not even a great movie. What has he done that is?

Also, Three Kings and, don't forget, he was in The Departed.

I liked him in all that were mentioned above...in addition to my personal guilty pleasure Four Brothers.

I went into this one at the theatre with no expectations and came out pleasantly surprised. It's definitely a fun thriller/heist movie, pretty well made in all respects. Nice intricacies of smuggling, etc. and a great payoff at the end.
