2 Guns – 4 out of 5
I think the math may be off on this movie but I counted more than two guns in this film. In fact, I lost count somewhere around 30 guns.
|It doesn't matter how many guns this film has, all that matters is that it had|
one Marky Mark in it.
|Let's face it, all of Denzel's characters of late are kinda|
blurring together. I think he's stopping an out-of-control
train or plane after this undercover operation.
|Everybody, at some point, should have one moment where they get to walk away|
from an explosion carrying a box of donuts.
|"Hey, let's go eye that old lady's lemon drink before the |
plants try to kill us."
|No Wilson and Vaughn but Paxton? It's like the Movie Gods were smiling on us.|
I really enjoyed Edward James Olmos and Bill Paxton in the film as well. Both men did their roles exceptionally well. Olmos provided some laughs playing the straight-man in some scenes and being the ruthless drug lord in others, while Paxton was fantastic at providing a little mystery with what interests his character and the CIA had to play in the film.
|So Say We All.|
The only real complaint I had about the film was the fact that once the mystery involved in the film’s story is revealed, the film moves really fast to tie up its loose ends and, maybe, they tie them up too fast to the point the last act of the film feels very rushed. However, 2 Guns is still very funny, has some great shoot outs and action scenes and Denzel and Mark are great together. The film isn’t meant to be deep, it’s just meant to be fun and that’s what it accomplishes.
