Contraband by Baltasar Kormákur, 2012 (R)

with Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Foster, Giovanni Ribisi, J.K. Simmons, Lukas Haas, Diego Luna, Caleb Landry Jones, Connor Hill, Bryce McDaniel

When his brother-in-law runs afoul of a drug lord, family man Chris Farraday turns to a skill he abandoned long ago -- smuggling -- to repay the debt. But the job goes wrong, and Farraday finds himself wanted by cops, crooks and killers alike.

Oh my god, most predictable script in a long while. The action is good enough you're still hooked, but the scenario looks like it has been created from a boring departing, and trying to make it exiting by hooking up to it some basic element to twist the story and make it continue, never ending. The cast is irritating, and the characters full of stereotypes of gangstas going from the coward to the good guy, to the irresponsible, to the impatient one, to the rich mafioso... Anyway, nothing original.
