Most of the action films from Hollywood lately have been disappointing or terrible, R.I. P.D being a case in point. From that point of view, 2 Guns is a fairly enjoyable action comedy with solid chemistry between the two lead actors.
Denzil Washington plays Bobby, an officer for the drug enforcement agency and Mark Wahlberg is Stig, a naval intelligence official. They are both trying to bust a drug lord except that they don’t know each others identity and the fact that the other is also an undercover agent.
They even break into a banks locker but then it all starts getting complicated and they are hounded. A lady agent (Paula Patton) is also involved in the scheme of things as the two agents try to clear their name.
It is pretty much harmless entertainment. Denzil Washington and Mark Wahlberg liven the proceedings with a few wise cracks. The film is adapted from a comic book so you wouldn’t expect something terribly serious but a decent time at the movies.
