Print this article Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale have risen to become two unlikely action stars, and the duo recently came together on "Contraband." The fast-paced action movie has the two actors at their best, and it comes to DVD on April 24.
Chris (Wahlberg) was once a smuggler, but he put his past life behind him and lives a quiet existence with his wife Kate (Beckinsale). He's thrown back into his previous life when the couple discover Kate's brother owes $700,000 to a mob boss. With nowhere else to turn, he has to return to his smuggling ways.
Chris has a lot of connections in the smuggling world, but getting the money is not all that easy. With the help of a former contact, he tries a series of plans including smuggling counterfeit money and taking part in an armored car theft, but time slowly begins to run out.
Both Beckinsale and Wahlberg have had an impressive string of well-reviewed performances, with Wahlberg earning an Oscar nomination for "The Departed" and Beckinsale powering the "Underworld" franchise.
