Released on August 2nd , 2013 2 Guns is an Action - Comedy Thriller that stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Directed by Baltasar Kormákur , 2 Guns is based off the BOOM ! Studios publication of the same name. 2 Guns follows the story of an undercover DEA Agent and an Undercover Navel Intelligence Officer who are reluctantly forced to team up after being setup for crimes they did not commit. I admit that the story is not the most original ; I mean we have seen Cops team up in countless movies in the past. What 2 Guns lacks in originality it delivers in action and personality.
Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg bring their own sense of style to the film while James Marsden lends his skillful abilities as a predictable villain. The film is rounded out by the seasoned Academy Award winning Bill Paxton and Edward James Olmos along with new comer Paula Patton. There was a gratuitous and pointless amount of sex and nudity in the film that in my opinion, takes away from developing the story further but it’s so much fun watch things play out between Washington and Wahlberg that you can forgive this flaw.
The ultra-over the top action and comic book like choreography is what really leaves the lasting impression in this film. It’s a slick, brutal thriller that leaves you wanting more ! 2 Guns will be available for Digital HD Release November 5, 2013 and on Blu- Ray and DVD on November 19, 2013
