Movie Info

For the past year, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Denzel Washington) and U.S. Navy intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Mark Wahlberg) have been working under cover as members of a narcotics syndicate. The twist: Neither man knows that the other is an undercover agent. When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, the men are disavowed by their superiors. Trench and Stigman must go on the run lest they wind up in jail or in a grave.

  • ... it's not that bad. But it ain't good either.

  • Movie rule 12: Mistrust anything bearing a '2' in its title - particularly when it's not a sequel. But 2 Guns proves a totally unexpected exception.

    September 5, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Washington and Wahlberg have a good time robbing banks and blowing up buildings and barreling through military security checkpoints and double-crossing people and shooting each other because none of it really means anything.

  • Like the Eighties never went away.

  • That a movie this fleet and lean succumbs to action-blockbuster bloat in the home stretch is both disappointing and predictable, although the director deserves credit for keeping the climactic shootouts slick and spatially coherent.

  • Mark Wahlberg reunites with Contraband director Baltasar Kormakur for an action movie that's even more cynical and sadistic than its predecessor.

Audience Reviews for 2 Guns

  • Jun 20, 2016
    Very good script. Plot twists executed at just the right time. Keeps you guessing. Acting between Denzel and Wahlberg was great. They played very well off of each other. The action sequences were well choreographed and not too over the top. A smart and very entertaining action film.

    Buddy comedy by the numbers, entertaining but forgettable, especially when you care little about what's going on on the screen and you're ultimately wondering what all the fuzz was all about. Only the protagonists' chemistry makes this somewhat watchable.

    Very different to what I expected as the trailer did it no favours and made it look just an average buddy cop film, And in a way it was but the story was great, Some good action scenes too, Denzel and Wahlberg were great together and really make the film move along more smoothly, Some funny humour thrown in makes it good as it could ever be.

    It's as though somebody watched Tango and Cash and thought, "I can do that!"
