Cast – Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton & Edward James Olmos – Based on the comic series of the same name by Steven Grant, the film’s story follows a DEA agent and a Naval Intelligence agent who find themselves having to work together to take down some corruption in the CIA and a Mexican Drug Lord who is after their heads VERDICT Just like Baltasar Kormákur’s 2012 movie Contraband that also stars Mark Wahlberg 2 GUNS starts with real promise, but ends up being a pretty messy action movie – for me the chemistry between the two W’s doesn’t quite work, Paula Patton’s talent is wasted, sadly only used as some onscreen eye candy, so it’s all left to the movie’s villains to save the film from mediocrity – Bill Paxton’s kneecapping, russian roulette playing Earl and Edward James Olmos’s Drug Lord Pepi both appear to have fun with their respective roles – during it’s original development 2 GUNS was to star Vince Vaughan and Owen Wilson and in my opinion that would have made for one hell of a better movie – overall 2 GUNS is an average Saturday night popcorn flick, with a mundane script and too many predictable set pieces – yet again… along with two of Hollywood’s biggest stars comes a big budget comic-book adaption that has sadly failed to deliver….
