When you first conceptualize the idea of Denzel starring along Mark Wahlberg, you may scratch your head at first and wonder who’s idea was this? But after the first 10 minutes leading up to the movie title sequence, you quickly realize that the director was genius for pairing these two great actors together.

Denzel and Mark‘s chemistry is great in this mostly action part comedy film. The comedic lines are perfectly timed and come naturally from both seasoned actors. Paula Patton serves as a great supporting actress along with Bill Paxton, James Marsden, Fred Ward & Edward James Olmos.

Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead this all-star cast for the action-packed 2 Guns. In short, the film is packed with all the bells and whistles that make a great action film. The special effects are top notch and the high speed chases are on point too. The film follows Denzel and Mark as they work together for 12 months as undercover members of a narcotics syndicate. The movie shifts into first gear when both actors encounter a huge problem in their partnership. Neither knows the true identity of each other.

2 Guns is directed by Baltasar Kormakur who is known for films such as The Sea, A Little Trip to Heaven, Jar City and The Deep. This film is a must see for fans of both leading actors and fans of great a action film sprinkled with comedy throughout.
