Description from IMDB: “A DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer find themselves on the run after a botched attempt to infiltrate a drug cartel. While fleeing, they learn the secret of their shaky alliance: Neither knew that the other was an undercover agent.”
OMG, love, love, love this movie. Denzel and Mark Wahlberg. Mmmm…yes.
The story has a lot of twists and turns, shady authority figures. The dynamic between Bobby (Denzel) and Stig (Wahlberg) is what makes this movie. Bobby is the smart one. Stig is the crazy one.
Their partnership has a similar vibe to the one between Tonto and John Reid in The Lone Ranger. They don’t really WANT to work together; they just have to. No bromance here, but they still work somewhat well together, somehow.
Not only do they personality issues, there’s also the collision of the DEA versus Naval Intelligence versus organized crime. That also made for some interesting depth to the story.
Awesome movie. 2 Guns gets an A.
