Have I seen this movie before? I think I’ve seen this movie before.
Universal’s new action-thriller/buddy-comedy 2 Guns is the kind of picture that’s full of been-there, done-that characters, twists, and action beats that are as familiar as houseguests who have overstayed their welcome, know it, and don’t care.
Denzel Washington should know better than this. Mark Wahlberg, well… maybe not. But come on, Denzel. We expect more from you.
The pair play undercover law enforcement agents hot on the trail of a Mexican drug lord (Edward James Olmos). The trick is neither Washington’s DEA agent Robert “Bobby” Trench or Wahlberg’s Navy intelligence officer Michael “Stig” Stigman knows the other guy is secretly on the side of the law. Bobby thinks the undercover Stig is a crook and vice versa, so much confusion and comedic interplay is meant to result from this arrangement — amid the gun battles, fistfights, and car chases, of course. (That includes a memorable car chase/fistfight combo scene that is perhaps the highpoint of the film.)
