Summary, etc.: Chris Farraday long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy, botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs, Chris is forced back into doing what he does best, running contraband, to settle Andy's debt. Chris is a legendary smuggler and quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian, to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills. Things quickly fall apart with only hours to reach the cash.
"This is an uncommonly well-crafted action adventure, or an action misadventure, given how much goes wrong for the resourceful hero."--Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal.
"Contraband's sense of humor is charmingly macho, real meat and potatoes stuff. Literally."--Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine.
"Whether he's slowing down time or ignoring its rules altogether, Mr. Kormakur's eccentric pacing brings its own dividends, as does what really gets him going in the film."--Manohla Dargis, New York Times.
