Was supposed to watch Contraband this week but I couldn't leave work... zzz. We were rushing a deadline which is today. Apparently we overworked ourselves because we are kind of free now. Hahah. Which is all good!

Running time: 110 minutes

Genre: Thriller
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Foster and more
Directed by: Baltasar Kormákur

The movie is about a man who tries to protect his brother-in-law after the latter screws up a smuggling job. In order to do so he has to fetch hidden counterfeit bills in Panama and hide the bills on a ship heading to Louisiana. Of course this threatens his wife and kids and he has to safe everyone and safe the day! 

Set in New Orleans, the film explores the cutthroat underground world of international smuggling—full of desperate criminals and corrupt officials, high-stakes and big payoffs—where loyalty rarely exists and death is one wrong turn away. 

BALTASAR KORMÁKUR (Directed by/Produced by) is currently one of the most important film directors to come out of Scandanavia. Kormákur has mainly worked as a film director/producer through his company, Blueeyes Productions, even though he has also established himself as an important director of stage plays.  His background as an actor (he graduated from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 1990) and director at the National Theatre of Iceland has left him with a soft spot for the theater. 

Catch it at theatres near you! :)
