Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg get caught in a triple cross in the trailer for comic adaptation 2 Guns

Mar. 29, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Well, this is a nice Good Friday surprise. I knew for a while that an adaptation of the comic 2 GUNS was coming, but I didn't expect it to look as good as this trailer presents. Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington look like an ideal duo in this buddy flick. I have to say this trailer made me think of TANGO & CASH if it were directed by old school Michael Bay.

Washington and Wahlberg play operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent. This is further complicated when they realize that they are not investigating money from the mob but rather something to do with the CIA. What comes off as a double cross becomes a triple cross and maybe even a quadruple cross, I can't fully tell from this well made trailer.

Directed by Baltasar Kormakur (CONTRABAND), 2 GUNS looks like a nice Summer action movie, one that will hopefully be rated R. Wahlberg looks like he is having fun, which is nice to see. When he plays it overly serious he loses me as a fan. The biggest plus here is Denzel finally playing a slightly different role. Here is lighter, playing with comedy and action, and looks better than he has in years. At first, I thought this was going to be another TRAINING DAY role, but I like that this movie is taking a LETHAL WEAPON approach to the comedy and action.

2 GUNS starring Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, James Marsden, Fred Ward, Paula Patton's ass, Edward James Olmos, and Bill Paxton, opens on August 2, 2013.

damn you 2 guns

I'm 37 years old. I have no business getting my hopes up that a trailer will lead to an awesome, chemistry-driven [link] action flick... but you did it. Damn you 2 guns.

Looks highly entertaining but it sounds horrible. That bad Bob Dylan cover and whatever the last song was, bad choices.
Regardless, this should be tons of fun.

Wahlberg and Washington sounds like a buddy cop team with lots of potential.

Cool.

This looks good. Has a less jovial Lethal Weapon vibe. And after TRUE LIES anything with Paxton playing a covert agent is chuckle worthy.

Looks Good

While watching the trailer, it reminded me of another film and I couldn't quite place it. But now I know. It looks like a bro-mance version of Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

This looks good. Like both actors, especially Denzel as he is one of my favorites. I like the mix of comedy and action that this appears to have. However, I am skeptical. I remember last year Savages having the same tone of action in it's trailer and being completely different (as well as disappointing). That and Contraband was no comedy, so we'll see. Either way, with all the talent involved here, I am looking forward to this. Denzel rarely disappoints, even with unremarkable material, so this

That looks fun!

This could be one of the better buddy movies to come along in a while. Looks like the chemistry is there, which is great since Washington has a tendency to overshadow his costars when they aren't up to snuff. Great supporting cast, too. Definitely has a classic early '90s vibe to it.

It looks like lethal weapon if it wasn't cheesy and lame. I'm looking forward to this.
