 The Story of “2 Guns”

Two bad guys are part of a drug cartel, living fast and dangerous.  But wait, are they bad guys?  Or is one of them an undercover agent?  But wait, huh?  Are both of them undercover?  Do they know about each other?  Hey!  Are they good guys or bad guys?  Are they working together or are they enemies?  Did he just shoot a bad guy?  Did he just shoot a good guy?  Did they just shoot each other?

Suddenly, everyone is chasing Stig and Bobby.  Drug cartels, CIA, DEA, Military…  There are bank robberies, car chases, wild and crazy blow-everything-up, scenes in this action and suspense film.

The Cast

Academy Award Winner, Denzel Washington plays the part of Bobby.  You are never quite sure which side of the law Bobby is on.  You are never quite sure when he is telling the truth and when it’s just a game.  Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors of all time and he doesn’t disappoint in this fast-paced action movie.

Mark Wahlberg plays Stig, Bobby’s partner.  Or at least we think he’s his partner.  By the wa all these questions are answered by the end of the movie, but I don’t want to spoil the journey for you!  Ever since he starred in The Fighter in 2010, I’ve been a Mark Wahlberg fan.  He has a wide-range of acting skills.  But Wahlberg always seems to look as if he has secret that he’ll share with you, but you just have to wait.

Although they have very different styles, what Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg have in common is a great sense of humor.  Both of them seem to love life, even when they are complaining about each other.  (In real life and in the movie)

Also featured in the film are the beautiful Paula Patton and Bill Paxton.  I’ve been seeing Paula Patton on a lot of talk shows lately, in part because of the Miley Cyrus thing with Paula’s husband, Robin Thicke.  Her off-movie personality seems fun and charming!

My Take

My husband and I watched the Blu-ray while Rosie was in school the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it.  “2 Guns” is “Thelma and Louise” with testosterone and trust issues.

Who is the good guy?  Washington and Wahlberg are so stinkin’ cute that you want it to be both of them.  But like brothers that can’t stop giving each other wedgies, Washington and Wahlberg keep rolling in the dirt and can’t help fighting.

There are definitely some difficult-to-watch gruesome scenes.  This movie is not for children.  But I closed my eyes at those parts and still enjoyed the humor, suspense, and action.  As a friend of mine used to say, “this is the perfect movie if you like to see stuff blowed up good.”

I give “2 Guns” an enthusiastic 4 out of 5 Popcorn Buckets.
