2 Guns (2013)

I liked it!  But it’s not a spy movie.  It is another movie that features the always interesting trope “CIA=Satan” but the rest is just buddy-cop fare.  It’s not cerebral, socially relevant, indie bullshit so a lot of critics had to reach for bad things to say about it.  This is an unpretentious movie that is simply out to do a fun and violent Charley Varrick story based on a graphic novel.  No shit it’s going to be violent.

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg were great and great together.  No one will deny that.  Say what you want about the movie but that is the driving force throughout and it works spectacularly.

Go see it because it’s a lot of fun to see.
