2 Guns is a fun action comedy that delivers with both the action and the humour. The two leads are always fun to watch in action and work well together. The story is relatively simple one, an undercover DEA agent (Denzel Washington) and a US Navy Intelligence officer (Mark Wahlberg) have been working together infiltrating a drug cartel, they don't know about each other's true role. Together they steal what they think was the drug gang's money, but turn's out to be someone far more dangerous.

The strength of the film is the two leads, they both look the part of their respective roles, but more importantly fit together, making this a good buddy movie. The plot of the film isn't anything special and acts simply as a vehicle for more set pieces and opportunities for the two leads to spark of each other.

While the story isn't all that, the writing is pretty good, the lines between the two leads all hit the mark and provide a good slice of humour. The action is well filmed and again both leads are convincing with the action.

All in all it's a very entertaining film to watch, don't expect greatness, but it is a lot of fun.

Opted for 4* as for what it is, it's a great film to waste a couple of hours on. Glad to say that it provides all you'd expect from the cover sheet. Both DW and MW play their roles well and together they create quite a partnership. Predictable in many areas but there's enough plot to keep you going for the entire film.
Worth a watch.

Bobby (Denzel Washington) is an undercover DEA agent working with Stigman (Mark Wahlberg) who in undercover Navy Intelligence. Each thinks the other is just a bad guy. Together they rob a bank on orders so as to steal money from a drug cartel. This way the money can be seized as evidence in a crime and they don't need a warrant, as if that has stopped them before. Things become confused as the there is more money than expected.

The banter between Wahlberg and Washington is what makes the film. They are too cool together. It is a fun popcorn film with comedy, dark comedy, and plenty of action. Good characters in a plot that was predictable. Worth seeing after you have seen Reds 2.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief nudity (Paula Patton).

I like movies starring EJO and in this one it's nice to see him as (one of the) bad guys. Yes, the plot of everybody trying to double cross each other has been done before and will be done again. I wanted something easy to watch and this fitted the bill perfectly. If you want a deep, philosophical movie go watch something else. If you want a couple of hours of entertainment and popcorn, watch this.

I have a certain level of respect for the career trajectory of Denzel Washington, when most actors win their Oscars they stick to making worthy films that might provide more accolades, but not Denzel. Instead, Washington is now one of the most bankable action stars around, alongside other mature hardman Liam Neeson. Why is this? ‘2 Guns’ is a great lesson in showing yourself as a likable antihero that is charming and somewhat believable.

Washington plays Bobby, an undercover DEA who is investigating Marcus (Mark Wahlberg), who also happens to be undercover for another party. They don’t really like each other, but must work together if they are going to break up a dangerous gang. If the synopsis has a classic 80s buddy comedy feel to it, you would be right. This is exactly the tone that ‘2 Guns’ is aiming for and unlike many films since the 80s heyday of the genre, it actually delivers. The chemistry between Washington and Wahlberg is key to the film working; the script is amusing, but it only really works because the pair deliver the lines so well.

A further key to making an action comedy work is of course the action. Here director Baltasar Kormákur pulls his weight. The plodding pace of his earlier ‘Contraband’ is replaced with high octane action that reminds you of the best of Tony Scott, a director that Washington worked so well with in the past. I really enjoyed this film, it is well paced throughout, has some great set pieces and amusing dialogue; there is not much more you could ask from when watching an old fashioned style 80s action comedy. Bring on the sequel.

Extras wise, the version I saw was a little vanilla with only a short making of and a chat track. In terms of visuals, the film is action packed and largely set in the desert so it really benefits from HD.
