This is a few rapid fire posts right here! Two letters to Kermode and Mayo in one week?! Thats how i’m rolling on this sunny Norwegian day… This is the review that i left on the Kermode and Mayo Facebook page. For Marky Marks Latest Film “Contraband” that I saw last week. I will be watching Hunger Games tomorrow afternoon so i may drop the Wittertainment Chaps a line about that as well!
There were some exciting set pieces in the period whilst the events in Panama were unfolding but at no point did you feel that the story would end up any other way but rosy for the good guys who were forced to be bad one last time (including the scene with a character in a plastic bag) .
Some harsh family scenes, a minor plot twist and a genuine interest in how they would get away with it kept me entertained this above standard fare.
I would like to ask if anyone felt threatened by the main baddie in Panama. I thought he was about as scary as a green jelly baby. I was also felt slightly disappointed by Giovanni Ribisi, who i feel has it in him to be a spectacularly nasty bad guy. Not just a stupid bad guy as he was in ContraBRAND.
