2013 had a ton of comic book movies come out and 2 Guns was one of them. Director Baltasar Kormákur was the guy between this Denzel Washington/Mark Wahlberg adaptation. It’s about a DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer, after screwing with a drug cartel they’re on the run while trying to piece everything together. Honestly this movie didn’t look that great to begin with but I was hoping I’d get at least an entertaining action flick out of it, but 2 Guns even fails on that front. It was just kind of boring, basically a churned out action movie that really has nothing that stands out about it. Granted I never did read the comic so I’m not sure if that helps, hurts, or doesn’t make a difference. Either way I’m assuming this would be pretty boring, I really can’t think of a reason I’d recommend this one, just don’t waste your time.

I was kind of anticipating this movie, I imagine I had the same thoughts as most people the first time they heard about it. Steve Carell and Tina Fey, how can this fail? It’s going to be great! Besides the stars of the film the rest of the cast is pretty padded, you’ll find Common, Mark Wahlberg, Ray Liotta, James Franco, Mila Kunis, and William Fichtner. Some fans of The League and Always Sunny in Philadelphia might notice some familiar faces as well. First thing you hear in the movie is the Ramones, off to a good start. From there it basically flattens out, there are some highlights, a few laughs just not a lot, It’s enjoyable, not bad but it does sort of fall flat. It’s just not as good as it should be with the cast at hand. Ultimately what we’ve got is sort of an extreme romantic comedy with action and a married couple. This is more of the type of movie you turn on when you’re laying on the couch on a lazy Wednesday afternoon flipping through channels. During the credits there are outtakes, most of which are the best parts of the movie.
