Movie Review: 2 Guns

2 Guns (2013)

A DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer find themselves on the run after a botched attempt to infiltrate a drug cartel. While fleeing, they learn the secret of their shaky alliance: Neither knew that the other was an undercover agent.

This was a good old fashion blow’em up cop action movie. I love Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington. They had great on screen chemistry with Denzel playing the straight guy to Mark’s crazy much like Lethal Weapon. One thing to be mindful of, the trailers play up the comedy aspect of the movie, and there is a lot of comedy, but it is also a drama. I liked how the story kept me guessing. You aren’t sure who the bad guy is till near the end. Then there is all the blowing stuff up in slow motion parts, which is an action movie staple.

You don’t need to see this at the theater to enjoy, but if you are looking for some entertainment away from the summer heat outside, this will satisfy.
good guy? bad guy? or Bat shit crazy guy?

  1. After hearing about all of the disappointing summer blockbusters with CGI up the whazoo, it's good to hear there's one down-and-dirty action film to be seen. I got this one on my radar for sure.

  2. Yep, definitely want to see this one :)
