Film Review - 2 Guns

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.

Action comedy starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Undercover DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and US Naval Intelligence Officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been working together as part of a criminal gang for the past year, with each of them in the dark about the other's true identity. After they rob a bank they soon realise that they have been set up to kill each other and with nobody on their side they are forced to form an alliance in order find out who wants them both dead.

2 Guns is available from Amazon (and is a fun watch)
