This was a good flick, although nothing special.

Don't buy it. It might be enjoyable for some but it's not very rewatchable. Contraband is better.
Most films that I find good I don't want to experience again.

I thought it looked fairly interesting, and I'm a fan of Crowe and Zeta-Jones (and I like Wahlberg most of the time), but due to poor reviews across the board, it's too risky for a blind buy to me. I'll be renting it. If I end up liking it, I'll pick it up when it drops in price down the road.

It was fairly entertaining with decent performances. Recycled plot points, some of which are really over-the-top. I won't be purchasing, as I can't see ever wanting to watch it again, but I would recommend renting.

It was the less disappointing of the two major neo-noir releases from 2013 so far.

As much as I like Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe, I don't see myself buying this one.

And P.S. Contraband was a good movie.

I don't really remember much of either movie but if I watched both of these movies back to back and had the choice to watch one of the 2 films again, it would definitely be Contraband.

If you haven't seen it, rent it first.

Contrand was a FAR better January Wahlberg film. Heck, that thing nearly reached my top 10 of 2012 list!

Terrible movie. I can't believe Wahlberg produced this.

One of the worst scripts I've seen get produced in a while. The dialogue is abysmal.

I don't have to worry about that, because this won't be entering my collection
