Here’s another Blog by a Mississauga Chiropractor…


Just watched Contraband (2012) starring Mark Wahlberg (Boogie Nights), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld) & Giovanni Ribisi (Friends).

In this movie, Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) is an ex-smuggler who is trying to stay out of a world he worked hard to leave behind.  He now has a new life and a new family he’ll do anything to protect. Set inNew 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.  Chris Farraday long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), 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 (Ben Foster), to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills. Things quickly fall apart and with only hours to reach the cash Chris must use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become their target.

This was a great action-packed film.  With Mark Wahlberg leading the cast, you get what you expect… A lot of fast paced, non-stop entertainment.

I would give this film a fun 7/10 stars.  Definitely check it out when you can.  Happy Viewing!
