  • I was not impressed by “Contraband”. I actually had no interest in the film except watching Mark Walhberg’s acting. I have to say Ben Foster was really good in this movie! In the beginning everything goes very slow, afterwards it’s getting a little bit better, but not as it should be. No, it’s not a miss if you haven’t seen this…
