“2 Guns” your opinion ? This American action film starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg had very mixed reviews, scoring a 6.8/10 from about 88,000 voters on IMDb and very other mixed reviews from sites like rotten tomatoes gave it a 64% percent. However after seeing this film for the first time I actually really liked it. Now it was different to see Washington playing this funny but yet normal Washington on screen mentality, and once again just like “The Other Guys” Wahlberg brings many laughs from start to end in this movie. I have really come to like these funny roles the he has been taking that stray from the normal action and serious movies he plays in. They actually worked very well together on the big screen and blend and mold to become quiet the duo.
The plot itself was very creative and caught me off guard, having Denzel being a undercover DEA agent and Marky Mark a US Navy Seal who are both posing as criminals to rob a bank. They are robbing the bank for money for two different reasons that end up throwing a hue wrench in both “crooks” plans.
Denzel needs to rob this bank for money to give to a cartel money because he failed to get cocaine on a drug exchange which leads to him wanting to use the money to get him on money laundering charges as a means of convecting him. Wahlberg is stealing the money for covert operation funds. They only believe they are robbing 3 million but are surprised to find they have robbed 43 million dollars. Wahlberg is ordered to take out Denzel, however finding out hes a agent he shoots to wound . These actions now make them both targets of their own groups leaving them no choice but to have each others backs and make it rain.
This is a must see action and I don’t want to give to much more away, however a little insider…. the 43 million is the CIA’s money they end up stealing………
