    Reading the review of "Ticklegear" I had to check out his otherpostings. Apparently Mark Walberg is his anti-actor. There was not onemovie with Walberg that he remotely liked. "Walberg stinks up anothermovie"..Walberg this..Walberg that. Man…just DON'T bother going toany of his movies. I suppose he thought "Ted" was a stinker also. Asfar as "2 Guns" he was dead wrong. This movie was great. The chemistrybetween Walberg and Washington couldn't be better. The humor (mostlyfrom Walberg) couldn't have been any better also. The story line wasfast and above all easy to follow. The action scenes were as good asone could want. Not over bearing (like this summer's "Man Of Steel")buta great crime thriller. I wasn't a fan of Walberg's when he firststarted appearing in films but have progressed to where I totally enjoyhis current movies. Regardless,if you like a thriller/drama/comedyyou'll love "2-Guns". Rated a one star by "Ticklegear'???…give me abreak!

    The right pairing of actors together can make or break a movie. Andsince 1967 there have been buddy cop movies. Now "In the Heat of theNight" is no "48 Hrs." or "Lethal Weapon", but the concept is the same.Two cops or cons/cops with opposite styles, attitudes, and methodscoming together for a common goal. Well with "2 Guns" I think I foundone of my favorite pairings in this genre and of the year, Wahlberg andWashington.

    I don't know, maybe it has something to do with the screen play writtenby Blake Masters, or maybe it is the characters created by Steven Grantfor his comic book series. I think it's the combination of both, but itwas Wahlberg and Washington who make it all come alive. Bobby (DenzelWashington) and Stig (Mark Wahlberg) are two criminals trying to worktheir way up the crime food chain. Unbeknownst to each other, both Stigand Bobby are undercover, trying to achieve the same goal. The goal isto bring down Papi Greco (Edward James Olmos), who is a drug kingpin.The way they decide to do so is to rob a bank that Greco has some moneystashed away in. Instead of getting Greco's money, Stig and Bobby robthe C.I.A of forty three million dollars. What follows is a lot ofone-liners, and if the title didn't give it away, a lot of gun fights.

    When it comes to the month of August, it is the place where thequestionable movies go. The not-good-enough-for-July dump bin if youwill. They are questionable because they are not the "big" summermovies, but summer movies none the less. When it comes to "2 Guns" Ithink the studio got it right. This is the perfect movie to follow allthose sequels and not so fun "big summer movies" (yes I am talking toyou Lone Ranger). How about a fun movie with two actors that everyoneloves? With plenty of action mixed in with just the right amount ofcomedy, this is the kind of movie I look forward to seeing. MarkWahlberg makes the movie, and the reason is simple, he doesn't playthat guy he plays in almost every move he is in. You know the quiet butnice guy, who just looks tough. In "2 Guns" Walhberg plays a cocky badass, who is good at what he does and he lets you know it every chancehe gets. Denzel on the other hand is just Denzel, which after sayingthat, I have said all I needed to say. Directed by Baltasar Kormakur,who makes a good version of a Michael Bay movie. This is a great choiceif you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, because in mymind, you can never go wrong with a fun time at the movies.

    "Two Guns" is a very entertaining action movie that mixes brutal andtension filled moments on one side with a lot of addicting dry humouron the other side. The chemistry between the two outstanding mainactors Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg is simply great. The firstone portrays a cynic and sometimes even misanthropic cop with strongnerves who has only one weak point which happens to be his superior Debwith whom he has a complicated romantic relationship. The latter oneportrays a smart but quite offensive US marine who naively believes injustice and truth at all costs. Denzel Washington somewhat portrays thetrue face of modern America while Mark Wahlberg stands for idealizedillusion of it. Both characters are quite different and complement eachother very well in this movie.

    They are both working on an undercover mission without knowing eachother's identity. They have infiltrated a Mexican drug cartel and areled to steal three million US dollars from a bank that is used by thedrug cartel. When they finally rob the bank, they discover that thereare not only three million but forty-three million dollars. The USmarine gets away with the money and encounters his superiors but theywant to eliminate him for not having killed his partner and done hisjob properly in every detail. The cop is not only followed by hissuperiors but gets also tracked down by a mysterious gang who is afterthe money. In addition to this, the drug cartel is also seeking forrevenge and wants to get its money back. The two quite differentpartners need to team up to fight against drug cartels, the police,marines and members of the secret service to get rid of the money andout of this disaster alive.

    The movie works great because of many explosive action scenes, a gooddose of dry humour and an authentic acting performance from all mainand supporting actors. The story is your usual conspiracy flick whichgets a little bit predictable. In the end, there was one scene thathappened a little bit too quickly for me to fully understand it whenone of the main actors found the stolen money but apart of that themovie has a vivid but not hectic pace and is easy to follow. The sidestory with the cop's superior portrayed by Paula Patton was tooconstructed and somewhat unnecessary to me and took the attention awayfrom the main issue but nothing's perfect.

    Fans of the two main actors and conspiracy flicks shouldn't miss thisone out. This movie is far from being revolutionary but it'sentertaining and definitely worth a walk to the movie theatres. Iwouldn't though recommend to purchase this film. You can see it onceand truly enjoy it from the beginning until the end but it doesn'trequest more attention.

    Had a chance to view it this week with only the trailer as a guide asto what I was about to see. It turned out to be mildly better than Iwas anticipating. Mark Wahlberg brought a comical element that workedwith the overall story with Denzel basically being the straight manthroughout. Denzel plays his role smoothly with a slight sarcasticcomedic side. I thought they both played off each other very well tokeep you intrigued with the ongoing twisting plot. Good to see JamesEdward Olmos after a long absence from the big screen. Always be LT.Castillo from Miami Vice fame to me. Don't base your opinion on thetrailer as I had. Worth a look.

    1. Pretty horrible storyline. Nothing new and lame double-cross garbagewe've seen done better 10,000x

    2. Wahlberg's character was laugh out loud hilarious at times, andentertaining throughout.

    3. Denzel must have known the writing/plot here was trash and justdecided to collect his paycheck and check out. He really didn't seem toput in any effort here, and his character wasn't even remotelymemorable.

    4. This movie really needed more humor to cover for the lack of story.the plot was so amazingly dumb at times I kept thinking it was goingthe direction of a parody movie (think Scary Movie, Naked Gun, HotShots).

    This is a pretty good movie and is definitely worth watching andprobably gonna watch it again when it again when it is free. If youlove action there is a very good amount in this movie. The movie alsohas comedy throughout which definitely makes you laugh. Has a very goodplot especially compared to a lot of movies this generation. It alsohas a good conspiracy plot so if you like that then this is also goodmovie for you. The movie has two likable actors in Denzel and MarkWhalberg. For Mark Wahlberg this is a big improvement from Broken Ciywhich I was not a fan of. Wahlberg is also very funny in the movie.Denzel was good too and he showed comedy. In the end if you like actionor like comedy or Wahlberg and Denzel I think you will like this movie

    I had heard about this movie back before the main cast was attached andonce I heard Marky Mark and Denzel were on board, I had to see it assoon as it came out. Lucky enough, my local theater had it 4 hoursearlier than most so I caught an 8 p.m. showing with a heavily packedcrowd who I laughed along with much more than I thought I would, butmore about that later.

    The movie had a little bit of The Departed in it in terms of plot andcharacters, and had little hints of comedic buddy cop films like RushHour. The plot itself was pretty well thought out with a few minor lazyelements but overall it made for an entertaining and very quick 109minutes. Despite having somewhat predictable twists and turns, the waythey play out in terms of result/consequence keep you guessing if onlyat least for a little bit, and it's those minor sequences of suspenseor confusion that kept the movie interesting for me.

    In terms of acting, of course Mark and Denzel bring it on and make fora believable pair of righteous men on a track they can't quite figureout. The introduction of so many different crews of people after ourtwo main protagonists reminded me of Midnight Run. To the some of youwho remember that film, if you liked that, I can tell you that many ofit's elements are brought to surface in 2 Guns.

    One thing to be noted is definitely the very pleasantly surprisingamount of genuinely funny content throughout the movie. There are veryfrequent scenes of dialog that are written ever so smoothly, and alongwith the perfect delivery of our two seasoned veterans, they make forvery realistic dialogs and conversations throughout.

    Overall, the film was very well written with very immersing dialog, hadgreat acting across the board, but fell somewhat flat with seeminglypredictable twists and turns, and some scenes where suspending yourdisbelief is just too hard. But hey, it was great for what it wastrying to be: A fun, entertaining, lightly suspenseful ride!

    This movie SUCK! Now Come On. Danziel Washington did good in thismovie, and I know he could have done better then to pick a movie likethat, This is the worst movie I saw him play yet. I seen lots ofDanziel movies, even as a child actor and I know he could do betterthan that. I seen two of his movies with naked women in the bedroom.OK, it's nothing wrong with it, but it's like one of his other movies.This movie did not have no action in it at all. The beginning of thismove SUCK! Guy's don't waste your money cause I sure did. I would haverather stayed at home watching "LOVE HIP HOP ATLANTA" OK! As for thewriter THEY COULD HAVE DONE BETTER THEN THAT. "REALLY" I also felt thatthe ACTORS deserve better roles then that. How I felt about the wholething or MOVIE. BEWARE! I GAVE IT 0 POPCORNS. THIS MOVIE MADE MY HEADHURT! I SAT IN THE THEATER CHAIR FOR 20 SECONDS SAYING TO MYSELF ISTHAT IT……..

    The overall writing and character beats are quite bad and I seriouslywonder what Denzel Washington was thinking when he agreed to do thisfilm. This movie perfectly fits the atrocious run that Mark Wahlberg ison adding to the awful string of Contraband, Broken City and Pain &Gain. They took an intriguing concept of two undercover agents workingnot knowing either is the law and turned it in to a mindless andmoronic mess. This thing screams "bad over-the-top film" at every turn.The ending is as dumb as any I've seen in years. The two leads exhibitnothing but crazed luck and a genuine lack of intelligence throughoutthe entire running time. Two points for Denzel's always glorious screenpresence, one point for some good one liners and one point for thePaula Patton nude scene. That's all this movie has to offer.
