The plot: Chris Farraday and best friend Sebastian Abney were "the Lennon and McCartney of smuggling" but both men have gone straight. Chris now works on the right side of the law, installing security alarms to provide a steady income for his wife Kate and children. Trouble looms large when Kate's baby brother Andy gets involved with gun-toting mad man Tim Briggs. To save his brother-in-law from an early grave, Chris must come out of retirement to smuggle fake bills across the border from Panama.

what the others say


"Contraband is a cut above cookie-cutter heist thrillers, and director Baltasar Kormákur looks ready for the big time."

Time Out

"The result is unlikely to linger long in the memory, but it's enormous fun while it lasts..."

Total Film

"Don't expect glamorous outlaws, sunny locales and exotic masterplans - this low-key thriller lifts the rusted lid off an all-too-real world of despairing criminality."
