2 GUNS (2013) – My Rating: 7.5/10

You can’t trust anyone these days!

2GunsWashington who plays a DEA agent and Wahlberg (who plays a naval intelligence officer) adds up to a lot of viewing fun.  Although a dangerous endeavor (fighting crime), the director, Baltasar Kormakur managed to give us a lighthearted rendition of the novel it’s based on (The Boom).   Here’s the thing, Hollywood has a way of painting a picture for the pure entertainment of the viewing audience.  Everything falls nicely into place.  2 Guns has many bad guys who are not on one team.  You have a cartel (bad), the CIA (bad) and the Navy Intelligence (bad) vs. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg (good).  This movie should be viewed as a fantasy because I can’t imagine events could go down this way and I’m sure, from a security stand point, it can’t.  However, I left this movie felling relaxed and happy and truly wanted to see more.  That’s what a movie like this is suppose to do, entertain and bring out happy endorphins.

Both actors did a very good job bringing a joyous film to life and you guessed it, I really like it and I recommend 2 Guns if you want to brighten your day.
