Consensus: Formulaic and often jarringly violent, 2 Guns rests its old-school appeal on the interplay between its charismatic, well-matched stars.

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.

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.

Beyond ridiculous but always entertaining. Washington and Wahlberg are terrific.

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

The biggest guns this action flick brandishes are stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg who have very different acting styles that work surprisingly well together.

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

An old-style buddy thriller laced with non-stop action, sizzling suspense, outrageous humor and brilliant chemistry from its two leads that make 2 Guns, nothing… More

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg aren't strangers to fronting acclaimed films in equally acclaimed performances; but they have something else in common.… More

2 Guns is a pretty generic buddy cop film with a confusing plot and lack of focus. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg make a solid pair together, but… More
