DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - Unlike a lot of big action films this summer, this film doesn't have a lot of huge effects and/or destruction, instead more focused on grounded action sequences and, most of all, the personalities of its leads, Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Fans of the pair and any of the recognizable supporting players such as Paula Patton and Bill Paxton, should enjoy, and that this film has a lot more humor than expected is a plus. Violence, language, and some sexual content make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The elements gel well enough to make 2 Guns an enjoyable cinematic experience but it's not the kind of movie likely to be remembered with clarity once the ride home is done.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The tone, pacing and staging of the action sequences are pleasantly surprising.

USA Today Full Review
Average The two leading men try their hardest to bring life to this forgettable shoot-'em-up.

Washington Post Full Review
Below Average Big guns, cool cars, tough talk and hats rule the day in "2 Guns," a cliche-ridden action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington in which the chemistry between the two stars packs far more heat than the explosions.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Two operatives from competing bureaus are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent. For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Denzel Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Mark Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down. When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.
