2 Guns was better than expected.
Denzel Washington does most of the heavy lifting on the acting side. Bill Paxton also serves up a convincing role. Though Wahlberg isn't the strongest actor, he delivers complex quips with great timing. Wahlberg and Washington have very good chemistry.
2 Guns starts off very promising, but immediately starts to drag. It then teases with what looks like a thoughtful plot, but that all unravels during the 2nd half of the movie. 2 Guns seems like it's made of various "that would be cool" plot elements strung together that don't blend to make a cohesive movie.
There are definite plot holes and the movie ignores the modern technologies that would prevent the undetected movement depicted in 2 Guns. The special effects and CGI are pretty poor.
2 Guns is entertaining, but very flawed.
There's nothing during or after the credits.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

The banter between Wahlberg & Denzel was perfect! We enjoyed the movie a lot! Very different for the 2 of them & well worth seeing.
Many good actors to fill the cast.
I think you'll find it time and money well spent.

This was a fun movie from a lot of different perspectives. Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg both have great on-screen presence and their banter throughout the movie is what contributed to the high points. Be forewarned however, that there is a fair amount of bilingual (English and Spanish) foul language throughout, so you may want to consider its being suitable for the younger ones. The story line doesn't paint a very complimentary picture of the CIA; as if they needed anyone in Hollywood to do that for them! Whether or not the story is believable or not, you will have to decide for yourself. And lastly, where DID all that money go? At the end of the outing, we all walked out with smiles on our faces, so I would have to say it was a winner overall.

The movie has good entertainment value. It was funny, didn't drag and had a good plot twist with a fun ending. The actors did a great job in their roles and I didn't think the violence was over the top (but lots of people got shot).
I enjoyed the movie and would recommend it for light entertainment.

This is a typical shoot 'em up movie. Plot is decent and high action - although shooting scenes are contrived as usual. No way that many bullets could fly and neither "good guy" get hit (assuming you buy that they are the good guys). No it won't give you much to think about but it was a fun evening out after a long work week.
