I didn't expect much from this movie other than some mindless action and was not disappointed. Contraband is nothing special, but is mildly entertaining which is perfect for a Friday night before a three day weekend. Wahlberg plays the same character he's played in his last few movies except he's in Louisiana instead of Boston. Kate Beckinsale looks fine as usual, but you don't get to see her assets.
The smuggling parts of the movie were pretty cool, but overall this movie is just ok. I recommend it only if your brain has already shut down for the night.
