Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"In this star vehicle for Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, the headlights are on full beam but the engine is struggling in second gear."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"What it lacks in robots and superheroes it more than makes up for in laughs, gunplay and personality."
‑ Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects
"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."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Watchable but empty"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"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."
‑ Adam Nayman, Globe and Mail
"Beyond ridiculous but always entertaining. Washington and Wahlberg are terrific."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"Generic, by-the-numbers buddy-action flicks don't come much more generic than this forgettable project."
‑ Corey Hall, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"The slack screenplay stumbles over loose ends, and director Baltasar Kormákur fails to find a consistent tone."
‑ Daniel Barnes, Sacramento News & Review
"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?)"
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Mark Wahlberg reunites with Contraband director Baltasar Kormakur for an action movie that's even more cynical and sadistic than its predecessor."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Like the Eighties never went away."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"Two hours of brainless action packed with some great laughs and featuring two actors clearly enjoying their time together."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Washington and Wahlberg are excellent but this collaboration is squandered"
‑ Cameron Williams, The Popcorn Junkie
