The Primate Perspective:
Definitely not boring! Balthasar Kormákur’s ‘Contraband’ kept me on my toes the whole time. Ex-smuggler Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) must return to a life of crime to protect his brother-in-law from a drug lord (Giovanni Ribisi). He puts together a team and heads to Panama on a big container ship to score millions of dollars in counterfeit bills. The film is an American remake of the 2008 Icelandic film ‘Reykjavík-Rotterdam’ in which Kormákur himself starred.
