Pair their back and forth with a hilarious cast of periphery players and 2 Guns pretty much has everything you'd want from a summer action comedy.

If 'Lethal Weapon' and 'Midnight Run' were billiard balls, Kormákur's directing is the cue ball hitting those two and smacking '2 Guns' straight in the corner pocket. Classic.

By the climax, in which the duo literally shoots their way through torrents of falling cash, we're left to wonder if the whole film was engineered for that moment.

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.

What it lacks in robots and superheroes it more than makes up for in laughs, gunplay and personality.

Generic, by-the-numbers buddy-action flicks don't come much more generic than this forgettable project.

Like the Eighties never went away.

A buddy-cop movie on steroids, 2 Guns fires off smart-alecky one-liners and bullets at equal rates -- as the stars make a convoluted and overwritten script work.

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.

Sacramento News & Review

The slack screenplay stumbles over loose ends, and director Baltasar Kormákur fails to find a consistent tone.

Two hours of brainless action packed with some great laughs and featuring two actors clearly enjoying their time together.

Watchable but empty
October 18, 2013
The worst-directed action film since Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim...yet another serving of action mulch where you simply do not care where the bullets land. (Sigh. Where's Steven Seagal when you need him?)

Washington and Wahlberg are excellent but this collaboration is squandered

The first pairing of Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington (two charismatic actors of different styles) and the entertaining, quote heavy screenplay from Blake Masters makes it work so well.

Kormákur lets the solid story, some neat surprises and its A-list stars do the work.

2 Guns is that rare popcorn flick that succeeds at being fun and breezy, and features just enough twists to entertain without getting too complicated.

Washington & Wahlberg drop wisecracks and bad guys from one side of the Mexican border to the other in this playful cop-buddy action thriller.

The best scenes involve Washington and Wahlberg arguing and trying to get the better of each other. If you're a fan of either actor, you're likely to enjoy this.
