    Fun, action, laughs and good times role in 2 GUNS. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are mesmerizing in this buddy movie extravaganza. There is never a dull moment. 2 GUNS truly rocks. Director Baltasar Kormákur gave us Mark Wahlberg in CONTRABAND in awesome sleeper of a movie. Kormákur outdoes himself here with Washington and Wahlberg. They seem like naturals in this film. Yes, I recommend it. This will rock you!

    This review is from: 2 Guns (DVD)

    “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. I couldn’t believe when the final scene came around, I mean time had simply flown by! The movie’s ending incidentally would seem to open the door wide for a sequel (assuming this does well at the box office), so we may well be looking at “3 Guns” or “2 Guns More” in a year or two. The screening where I saw this at here in Cincinnati today was quite well attended for a late matinee, and it seemed like the crowd was enjoying it as much as I was. No, this isn’t going to win any Oscars, but if you are in the mood for a fast-paced buddy movie with great action scenes, you will almost certainly enjoy “2 Guns”.

    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.
