After watching this for 5 minutes I realised I had seen this movie before, 5 minutes later I realised I have this movie in my own collection......DUH ! Never the less still very enjoyable with high action and suspense
The dvd we got never worked,so never got to see it.
A flamin good movie. But it was freezing and jumping a lot. Not happy.
Good entertainment factor and kept me interested throughout film - would watch it again.
If you like lots of swearing, macho tough guy stuff, violence and shallow plot, then this is the movie for you. A tough boy movie.
A good insight into crime on different levels.
Action packed and very exciting. I love this stuff
It took a while to get going...but Wahlberg always produces the goods. Kate Beckinsale would have to be once of the best looking actresses in the industry. A good movie.
Plenty of action and Mark Walburg at his usual best. Believeable
It is strange why we would root for the criminal that is doing the wrong thing for the right reasons good movie
Easy to watch, but there were some parts that were easy to see what was coming. That said, Giovanni Ribisi is awesome and Malk Walberg is also pretty believable. Makes you think about the amount of this sort of stuff that must go on over there though.
It was quite a good action movie, quite watchable.
Good Movie - Better than I had expected
Mark Wahlberg never seems to disappoint. As other reviewer said "enjoy it for what it is".
I love anything with Mark Wahlberg
Don't be put off by some bad reviews. It is your typical drug runner / drug lord / bad guy / action type movie. If you are into that style movie - get it. You won't be disappointed, plenty of action. If you want to pick the plot to bits with the implausible or in some cases impossible scenes, then don't get it. Enjoy it for what it is... it is a movie... not a documentary! We thought it was very good.
Not bad, but not one of the better movies i have seen..
I love anything with Mark Wahlberg in it but I found this a little forced on his part
Yawn, Actors are just going through their lines. Typical plot of big brother getting little annoying brother out of trouble.
Drug recovery is also totally unbelieveable.
Promises to be a great action flick with cool twist, based on smuggling in New Orleans. Does not deliver. Lame, predictable and uninteresting plot. Plus role of wife is to stay home, get repeatedly beaten up while hubby (Wahlburg) does his great adventure hero thing. Sick of action films with non-existent roles for women...c'mon - give us something for the chicks!!
Have to say that I usually watch a movie with Mark Wahlberg in it. Good movie but you have to be into action, thats all there is in it.
don't expect too much from this action flick, worth watching - Mark Wahlberg fan but this wasn't his best.
Not as good as I thought it was going to be. Predictable
Wahlberg plays a former drug smuggle trying to go straight but is forced back into the lifestyle to save a relative. The acting is surprisingly good and Ben Foster is outstanding (similar to his role in 'The Mechanic'. Action all the way through. I never knew there were so many hiding places for drugs on board a ship. The ending is different, as Foster's character gets his just deserts. The underlying theme with the rare modern art painting is funny - it does look like a painter's drop sheet !! I would recommend this but definitely not for children, in my opinion.
I really enjoyed this movie. It took a different side of the story that is usually never depicted in these kind of movies and I thought it was brilliant. As far as I am concerned this is a must see movie and well worth watching.
Kinda fell asleep towards the end. Other than that it was OK, a little different to what I was expecting. Mark Wahlberg isn't a great actor.
To protect his brother-in-law from a drug lord, a former smuggler heads to Panama to score millions of dollars in counterfeit bills. What a lousy movie. Poor acting, laughable direction that went nowhere
Average....thought it would be better, somewhat disappointed.
Predictable and boring rubbish.
a great piece of action that gets you wondering i really liked this a thumbs up film
Good fast paced movie, plenty of action.
Excellent, there are some big hits in this movie, action at one of its best in a while! edge of your seat yes, twists and turns, fast paced.... no toilet breaks or you'll miss something!
good edge of seat stuff. plenty of plot twists that entertain even if they fail to surprise. good story. great ending.
A good, witty thriller utilizing all the usual ingredients keeping one enthralled.
Marky mark had found a great screenplay from Icelandic and dutch sources and given it a great new look around the Panama Canal.... gritty and violent but necessary for the story
Not the best I've seen but by no means the worst, loads of action.
good movie,lots of action
We enjoyed movie - nothing to rave about, but worth a look
It must've all made sense to the script writers and they deserve credit for the convoluted plot. However, the ordinary viewer spends most of the time lost in a dark and confusing world. The most interesting part of the film is the ship coming in to Panama, presumably shot on location. It's a fascinating-looking place, albeit the movie's action is in the slums, much like those often seen in films set in Mexico.
Ok movie. A little bit far fetch in some instances but this is a Mark Wahlberb movie. Quite ok for a Saturday night stay in. It wouldn't win an award but still a little better than most other action flicks.
Fairly predictable plot, BUT it is done so well it doesn't matter :) and there are a few humorous twists.
Not a bad movie,story line a bit thin but entertaining
Stupid kid, well made film.
I loved it, it's definately worth watching
Nothing different but I enjoyed it, mostly I suppose because I like all the main actors.
Its not bad, its an ok action flick, it doesnt really disappoint and doesnt reallly impress. At least you wont be annoyed that you got a dud. 3/5
good action movie - worth a look
Watched this via Quickflix' PPV. No problems playing it. Movie was typical Mark Wahlberb style. If you've liked his movies in the past, you'll love this. 4 / 5 Stars
