O que se diz lá fora sobre CONTRABAND, de Baltasar Kormákur:
«This solid if disposable genre exercise maintains a hard-driving line of action and a commitment to one-damned-thing-after-another storytelling that carries it past any number of narrative speedbumps and preposterous detours.»
Justin Chang, Variety.
«The absurdity of the story in the largely thrill-free thriller CONTRABAND, its hairpin twists and outrageous coincidences, may keep even hungry action fans away.»
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
«It's exactly the sort of movie that Hollywood specializes in, the kind which seems on paper as if it ought to be entertaining, but winds up a massive and chaotic drag.»
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com.
«CONTRABAND, while often grungy and far-fetched, does keep you watching. And in January, that's recommendation enough.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«The lead role of a working class former smuggler who dirties his hands again to save his family fits Mark Wahlberg like a glove.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
