‘2 Guns’ Trailer: Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg Shoot ‘Em Up
This ‘2 Guns‘ trailer tries to explain its complex crime-thriller plot but there’s probably just one thing you need to know: do you like Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg cracking jokes with each other while watching them shoot things and blow stuff up? Well then, you’re probably gonna love ‘2 Guns.’
We’ll be honest – we’ve watched this ‘2 Guns’ trailer and we’re not entirely sure what the movie is about. It seems it’s a riff on ‘The Departed’ in that two guys are undercover, this time for competing federal agencies, and neither knows the other is undercover. And they rob banks but then have to find the person who set them up and Paula Patton is taking her clothes off and well, let’s see if the official plot synopsis can clear any of this up:
Two 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.
No, not really.
This is not to say that we don’t like the look of this ‘2 Guns’ trailer. As we mentioned previously, it leans heavily on the chemistry between Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg and the two have a little ‘Tango & Cash’ thing going on (they’re even hung upside-down next to each other by the bad guy). And speaking of bad guy, any time you have a mustachioed Bill Paxton as your villain, we’ll buy a ticket no matter what.
So if you like your action movies 80s style (cool guys are definitely not looking at the explosions here), you just might get a kick out of this movie.
