    2 Guns is a movie based on smart callbacks and sly flip-flops of loyalty, regularly interrupted by spasms of well-staged violence.

    In a season stuffed with empty eye candy, 2 Guns comes along as something of a welcome burrito — plenty satisfying and hardly nutritious.

    The movie is loud, fun, quick moving, and features some nice acting turns.

    Wahlberg and Washington are so good together, quips flying as fast as lead, that much is forgiven.

    The movie has style but increasingly little sense.

    This is a here today, gone tomorrow trifle, albeit one with lots of gunplay. In midsummer, that may be enough, but it's still a shame that 2 Guns shoots so many blanks.

    It's a complete mess, the spectacle of filmmakers blowing up their movie and everything in it, because they can't think of anything else to do.

    I thought this one was a lot of fun. It has a great mix of action and comedy that keeps it from being too serious and too silly. WashintonI thought this one was a lot of fun. It has a great mix of action and comedy that keeps it from being too serious and too silly. Washinton and Wahlberg are great together and play off one another terrifically. Edward James Olmos and Bill Paxton are also really great in the film as well and just give the film a very solid cast. The only complaint I had was the movie feels a little rushed at the end but it didn't kill my enjoyment factor. Just a fun (and funny) movie. Expand

There are several plot twists which keep the movie alive and make it a nice watch if you´re not asking for much. But it´s just that. It is the typical action movie made for male audiences (and straight) where women show their bodies more than males for no reason and a lot of violence happens. Expand

    A painfully appalling attempt at the humorous, buddy/action genre. This thing falls drastically short of being any way entertaining. It hasA painfully appalling attempt at the humorous, buddy/action genre. This thing falls drastically short of being any way entertaining. It has no story, poorly-drawn characters, irritatingly weak dialogue and boring action. Don’t waste your time. There are plenty of better buddy/action films out there. Expand
