Customer Reviews

There was great chemistry with Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.
Chanel Sprague
Those films were wonderfully entertaining and they contained similar elements, but those movies succeeded where this one just wheezes along.
H. Ross
Good movie with some fun dialogue and great action between the characters.

So these two guys are gonna rob a bank...This is sort of a Spy vs Spy, as two undercover agents from two different government organizations, neither of whom knows of the other's link to his real employer, rob a bank together, only to discover they have been set up...plus there is waaaaay more money than they expect. $43.125M!

Directed by Baltasar Kormákur ("The Deep" one of my favorites from the 2013 Seattle International Film Festival) and written by Blake Masters (Lots of TV) based on Boom Studio's graphic novels, this is fun all the way, with enough comedy to keep ME happy and enough action to entertain the screening audience.

We enjoy:
* Denzel Washington ("Flight") is Bobby, the steady, focused DEA guy whose patience is sorely taxed by his gabby sidekick.
* Mark Wahlberg ("Broken City") is Stig, an ebullient (and very funny) Naval Intelligence officer...plus he's a GREAT shot!
* Paula Patton ("Disconnect") plays Deb, the beauty with the DEA who shares a history with Bobby.
* James Marsden ("30 Rock") brings Quince to the screen; he GIVES the orders in the Navy.
* Bill Paxton ("Big Love") his Earl from the CIA shows us what cruelty looks like.
* Edward James Olmos (Lots of TV) Papi Greco leads a drug cartel (as if things weren't already complicated enough).

This R-rated actioner kept the audience involved every single minute. Expect profanity and nudity, plus a LOT of gunfire and vehicular mayhem, but no discernible Computer Generated Imaging.

It was violent and wild, but I liked it! I'll enjoy the DVD from Amazon even more because I'll get ALL of the punchlines.

"2 Guns" (2013 release; 109 min.) reunites director Baltasar Kormákur with Mark Wahlberg (they previously teamed up on another enjoyable crime action movie called "Contraband"), and for good measure Denzel Washington is brought along to co-star. The plot is pretty convoluted, and I don't spoil anything when I simply say that you shouldn't accept anyone being who they say they are. Apart from that, everyone is chasing $41.125 million in drug money.

Several comments: first, once in a while I need to see a great action movie, and this one certainly lives up to its billing. As the movie opens we see the characters played by Washington and Wahlberg observing a bank which they've decided to rob, from across the street in a diner. Some funny back-and-forth banter between the two ensues but before you know it we are in the middle of the hold-up, and its aftermath. Second, almost more important than the actual plot is the writing of the movie. The script is sharp from that perspective, with lots of funny exchanges between the main characters. Third, the chemistry between Washington and Wahlberg is palpable, and carries much of the movie. Seems like these guys are enjoying themselves, so why wouldn't we enjoy ourselves too while watching the movie. Fourth, there are a number of smaller roles that nevertheless add a nice touch to the movie, in particular Edward James Olmos as the Mexican drug lord (made to look incredibly old for this role, which was also the case in that other recent movie he starred in, "Filly Brown"), and even more so drop-dead gorgeous Paula Patton (a/k/a Mrs. Robin Thicke) as Washington's friend-with-benefits.

Bottom line: I really enjoyed this movie quite a bit, even more than I had expected/hoped for.

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).

Based on the graphic novel, 2 Guns, the film follows criminals Bobby Trench and Michael Stigman, who plan to rob Papi Greco, a Mexican drug lord. But after an unexpected overflow of cash during their heist that leaves them with $43 million, they both discover that they're both undercover. Stigman is Special Forces, and Trench is DEA. What they don't know, is the $43 million belongs to the CIA, and soon things spiral out of control, leaving the duo with nothing to do but fight back.

2Guns is directed by Baltasar Kormakur, who previously directed Mark in the crime-thriller, Contraband. Here, 2Guns is filled to the brim with non-stop action, laughs, and a great story about friendship, with some bloody details thrown in. The writing is fantastic; nothing Oscar-winning, but still greatly memorable. The acting is even better, with this being Marky Mark's best film by far. Denzel Washington is great as Trench, and his role here does rank along his best (Alonzo from Training Day, Tobin Frost from Safe House, and Whip Whitaker from Flight). The cinematography is surprisingly fantastic, with a few great shots in New Mexico during a sequence where Bobby and Stigman have to cross from Mexico into the US. Honestly, the only movie I can think of that is as funny as 2Guns, is Edgar Wright's The World's End, which was also released this year.

2Guns is a must-see and own for action fans, comedy lovers or anyone who likes the two lead actors because this movie, while not a massively epic blockbuster, really shows us why we love seeing movies on the big screen. The action never stops, and the laughs keep coming.

4.5/5 Stars
