2 Guns Review


Excellent

What looks like a rather standard buddy action comedy is elevated by a smarter-than-normal script, skilful direction and surprisingly offhanded chemistry between Washington and Wahlberg. In addition to the usual action chaos, the film lets big issues gurgle under the surface while refusing to play it safe. For example, the villain here is the US government, rather than some cliched foreign nutcase.

It's set on the US-Mexico border, where smooth operator Bobby (Washington) is working with fast-talking Stig (Wahlberg) to make a deal with the drug kingpin Papi Greco (Olmos). When they decide to rob a local bank to get his attention, the whole situation blows up in their faces. Not only does it emerge that both are undercover federal agents (Bobby with the DEA and Stig with Navy Intelligence), but their bosses (Burke and Marsden, respectively) are unwilling to protect them. Even Bobby's colleague-girlfriend (Patton) can't really help. And now they're being chased by everyone, including Papi and a swaggering killer (Paxton) with connections to the CIA.

The rather crazy plot demands that we pay attention as each of these factions is brought into focus, and it's refreshing to see a big movie that never abandons its own internal logic. Everything does indeed fit together into a larger picture, and since Bobby and Stig are alone in trying to figure it out, we happily go with them. Washington and Wahlberg are having a lot of fun with these characters as they jostle against each other in various displays of messy bravado. Opposite them, Patton has a thankless sexy-female role, but Olmos is quietly fierce, and Paxton steals every scene as a cocky, sneering villain who leaves a trail of destruction in his wake.

'2 Guns' Failures To Fire Up Critics In Early Reviews

2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, is due to be released on US cinemas on 2nd August. The film sees a DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer forced to run following their failed attempt at infiltrating a drug cartel. The film has received less than favourable early critical reviews.

Many have described the action film as being cliché and lacking in a cohesive plot or particularly strong characters. Keith Uhlich of Time Out New York said the movie "quickly degenerates into boilerplate Hollywood sound and fury, complete with a climactic Mexican stand-off that revolves around a massive, burning pile of money".

2 Guns Trailer


Marcus Stigman and Bobby Trench have, for the last year, been working together as part of a drug organisation; however, neither knows the other's true identity as they have both been sent out undercover as part of their work as federal agents in separate organisations. Their attempt to uncover millions of dollars from a Mexican drug cartel goes badly wrong when the agents turn on each other revealing their true identities; Stig is a Naval Intelligence officer while Bobby is part of the Drug Enforcement Administration. They take the situation to their respective superiors and discover that they have both been set up with the money that they recovered not belonging to who they thought it did. They realise that they must work together to bring down the real criminals while they themselves are wanted dead or jailed.

The Green Hornet Review


Weak
An inventive anti-hero theme sets this film apart from the usual superhero movie, but excessive violence and incoherent action leave it deeply frustrating to watch. And it doesn't help that the lead character is so unlikeable.

Britt Reid (Rogen) is the slacker son of a wealthy news baron (Wilkinson). When he inherits the newspaper, he hasn't a clue what to do with it. But he starts hanging out with his dad's old valet Kato (Chou) and hires a sexy assistant (Diaz) whose intelligence he completely ignores. And with Kato, he creates the Green Hornet, who solves crime while apparently being a villain. Soon they're squaring off against the criminal mastermind Chudnofsky (Waltz) as Los Angeles descends into a violent crime war.

Gossip Review


Weak
I have quickly found myself tiring of the peculiar tedium of the gritty twentysomething whodunit. While I'll fess up to having liked Cruel Intentions, recent films like Body Shots and The Skulls have left a sour taste in my mouth.

Gossip does not get rid of that taste.

The Road To El Dorado Review


Good

How Hollywood's animated filmmakers can continue to crank out pictures built on the same template year after year and have them continue to be even occasionally entertaining is something I'll never completely understand. But "The Road to El Dorado," a 100-percent formula cartoon adventure set against Cortes' arrival in the Yucatan, does it again.

This one is about Tulio (Kevin Kline's voice) and Miguel (Kenneth Branagh), two-bit Spanish con men with a treasure map, caught as stowaways on the conquistador ship as it makes for the Americas in 1519.

Late one night on the high seas they make their escape in a row boat and wash up on foreign shores.
