This week the crew is back talking two action movies Killer Elite and Contraband.  We had a lot of fun with these movies and make some interesting observations of both movies both good and bad.

This movie is based on a true story of a group of Britain’s Elite Special Air Service members coming out of retirement to save De Niro’s character, Hunter, from a Sheikh who wants revenge on a secret society that is responsible for killing his 3 sons.  Listen in to see what we think as to the some questions that left us scratching our heads (At least Mike and Square).

Our feature flick this week is Contraband, which stars Mark WahlbergBen FosterLukas HaasKate Beckinsale and the always fun to watch Giovanni Ribisi. This movie centers around a blue-collar family that happen to be the best smugglers in the business.  When Mark Wahlberg’s character gets out of the business and try’s to make a fresh start his wife’s (Kate Beckinsale) brother keeps going with the smuggling and makes a mistake by dumping a “shipment” that was intended to be delivered to mobster Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi).  After making the decision to try to fix the problem himself Chris Farraday (Mark Wahlberg) gets his old crew together and the race begins to get $700,000 into the country in order to make things right before it’s too late.
