Baltasar Kormákur, the director of last year’s Contraband
, reteams with that movie’s star Mark Wahlberg for yet another action-adventure. Wahlberg and Denzel Washington play competing undercover operatives who must join forces after each fails to infiltrate a drug ring on their own due to massive double and triple crosses within their agency ranks.
The B-movie glow surrounding 2 Guns comes not just from Wahlberg and Washington, but also a cast that includes the likes of Fred Ward, Bill Paxton, James Marsden and Edward James Olmos along with a healthy dose of sexual heat from Paula Patton. Guns will be a-blazing. Now in theaters. (R) Not screened in time for review.
