Mark Wahlberg to me has a Whiny voice and for this reason I am not particularly drawn to the movies he acts in. However, I did fine that this movie he had a bit more control over his Whiny voice and therefore the movie was watchable. I also thought some of the innovations was brilliant as well. The way the hiding spot on the ship was made, the way they got the contraband off the ship using science, the way he gets his revenge on people as well. However, there are way to many unbelievable situations that the main character gets in without a scratch that lowers the enjoyment of the movie as you are saying to yourself that is impossible.

Passes the time, makes smuggling seem anyone could do it and make a few million, have some adventures. Yawn.

Seemingly starts out as a same old "one last heist" plot,.. but then it gets more twisty and entertaining as it picks up the pace.
I liked the blue collar grit.
No glamorous 'Oceans 11' criminals,.. just increasing action and a pile-up of unexpected developments.

Unoriginal and formulaic.

A decent action movie about smuggling. Lots of holes in the story but good acting and nothing too over the top make it a good watch.

Originally I stopped watching it b/c couldn't take the slow start and low whispering conversations, which made it hard to follow the dialogue. Very happy that I gave it a second chance, b/c suspense built as movie progressed.
