Critic Reviews of "Contraband"Time OutMarch 13, 2012
The result is unlikely to linger long in the memory, but it's enormous fun while it lasts...New YorkerJanuary 24, 2012
A winter-season product, but perfectly absorbing once it gets going.MSN MoviesJanuary 13, 2012
It's a good, chugging caper movie for the most part.Rolling StoneJanuary 13, 2012
Wahlberg could sleepwalk through this role, and does. See this movie and you'll surely follow his lead.Detroit NewsJanuary 13, 2012
"Contraband" comes off the factory floor with its engine running and ready to drive. But the ride feels overly familiar.Newark Star-LedgerJanuary 13, 2012
Frankly, Wahlberg has outgrown movies like this. And so have we.Christianity TodayDecember 30, 2012
We are left to ponder why Andy is any less culpable or any more worth saving than anyone else.Examiner.comSeptember 17, 2012
It may not exactly be an original story, but when a little effort is put into a film like this, it can be done pretty well.We Got This CoveredSeptember 17, 2012
Contraband is a decent action film but none of the cast can do anything to elevate the material beyond what it is: a January movie from top to bottom.CraveOnlineAugust 22, 2012
Plays like conventional Hollywood genre entertainment even though all the actual events in movie feel like they belong in a Michael Mann joint.Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)May 11, 2012
With its dim lighting and handheld camerawork, the director's 'realistic' visual approach is arguably bogus, but it pays dividends as the narrative becomes increasingly grim.IGN DVDApril 17, 2012
Wahlberg delivers in this sometimes tense, enjoyable, but morally muddy heist thriller.
