This action thriller was meant to give those watching the movie a sense of hope and longing that the characters are able to make it in time as they rush to protect the lives of those they love. Overall the movie was far better than I anticipated and is a must-see for those who like a good jump and enjoys the thriller-action genre. I think that they did fine maintaining a good story and addressing all of the main points.
My one wish, however, is that they should have put a little more action in order to keep viewers at the edge of their seats. Even though there were other major characters in the movie, I feel that their roles should have been expanded more seeing that about four of the supposed important characters in the movie were only on screen for about 5 minutes during the climax, and a couple of minutes at the end of the movie.
Contraband was in my opinion a well-thought-out movie that shows us what happens when people make the wrong choices. It aslo shows us a world that is unbelievably chaotic and out of control; and gives us a whole new perspective in the life of those in a corrupt business. This movie displays the message of betrayal and trust, and the need to protect important possessions by straying off the right path.
Personally, this movie bored me to death at the very beginning, but that slowly changed when it got to the actual plot. Contraband kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time and left me anticipating what was going to happen next. All-in-all Contraband was an outstanding movie that I recommend to people who like thrillers with a hint of action.
