Mark Wahlberg is back in action mode, doing what he does well, in this melodrama about an ex-smuggler drawn back into that field when his brother-in-law (Caleb Landry Jones) runs into trouble with a drug kingpin (Giovanni Ribisi).
If he can't set things right, the Wahlberg character faces the possible elimination of his entire family by the villain, including his wife (Kate Beckinsale). Ben Foster, Lukas Haas and J.K. Simmons also appear in the rugged tale. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by director Baltasar Kormakur and producer Evan Hayes; deleted scenes. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
