Review: Wahlberg Does One Last Job in 'Contraband'
By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic
January 11, 2012 (AP)
Yes, "Contraband" follows the tried-and-true One Last Job formula. Yes, Mark Wahlberg is nestled deep within his comfort zone as a former master criminal who's lived a dangerous life and gone straight.
Still, this is a solid genre picture that knows exactly what it is, has no delusions of grandeur and carries out its task in entertaining and occasionally even suspenseful fashion. That probably sounds like an elaborate way of saying, "Hooray for mediocrity!" But it's January, and we'll take our thrills where we can get them.

BSCkids: Connor Hill
What was the first acting gig you got?
I was actually about five and was in a movie called The Librarian.
What can you tell us about your film, Restive?
I actually just went to the premiere and it’s a pretty intense movie. It is about abuse in a family. My mom and I are running away from my uncle and father. And whew, it’s just a pretty crazy movie.
What has been your favorite actor/actress to work with so far?
