DVD Review: 2Guns
2 GUNS is based on the graphic novel series of the same name published by Boom! Studios. Starring the odd pairing of Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, this buddy film with a difference starts with Trench (Washington) and Stig (Wahlberg) staking out a small town bank in preparation for knocking it off.
Then we jump back in time and cross the boarder where Trench and Stig are trying to offload forged passports to a Mexican drug lord. Crossing back into the US of A the boys get stopped and searched by US Border Control. It’s here that we find out that Trench is actually DEA. A little later we discover that Stig is Naval Intelligence. Things are going to get very interesting as they boys complete the bank job, both thinking they are setting the other guy up, but in reality they are both being set up.
And this is only the beginning of a roller-coaster ride that is full of plot twists, smart arse comments, deadly gunfire, things that go bang and other summer action film essentials.
With Washington’s cool and effortless Trench the perfect balance to Wahlberg’s unstable Stig the buddy factor blazes new paths for the genre, giving us an odd couple that works amazingly well with a film that never misses a beat, delivering one of the best action blockbusters of the summer.
