What would you hide to protect your family?
Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best—running contraband—to settle Andy’s debt.
Chris is a legendary smuggler and quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian (Ben Foster), for one final run to Panama and back, hoping to return with millions in counterfeit bills.
Things quickly fall apart and with only hours to reach the cash, Chris must use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become their target.

Fresh: [A] thick-cut, crusts-left-on smuggling thriller directed by the Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormkur.-Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph, March 15, 2012
Rotten: It's a thriller in which the twists become so absurd that it becomes a kind of caper, but without the humour.-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK], March 15, 2012
Rotten: It is criminal that a director of Kormakur's talent should make the run from the gloomy authenticity of Jar City to this bland Hollywood fare.-Anton Bitel, Film4, March 15, 2012
Fresh: The result is unlikely to linger long in the memory, but it's enormous fun while it lasts...-Tom Huddleston, Time Out, March 13, 2012

Reviewer: Maurice Review refers to DVD version
The action in this movie was good and the plot was original, but much of the vocabulary was vulgar. Maybe if more thought had been put into dialogue and not just slammed with four letter fill-ins, I would have liked it more.
