Monday (09Dec13) marked the anniversary of the tragedy and the co-stars of her debut film, independent drama Filly Brown, have shared their thoughts and feelings.

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.

Edward James Olmos Heaps Praise On Tragic Rivera's Acting Talents


Edward James Olmos Jenni Rivera

Revered Latino actor Edward James Olmos has added his tribute to tragic singer Jenni Rivera, insisting she was on her way to winning an Oscar for her acting.

Rivera, who perished in a plane crash at the weekend (08-09Dec12), made her acting debut in Olmos' new film drama Filly Brown, and the Blade Runner star admits he was impressed by his co-star's talents.

He tells Billboard.com, "News of the plane crash tore my heart out. Jenni was just an amazing force. From the very beginning I've said that she could garner an Academy Award for her work in Filly Brown. She had a tough life, but she also had an extraordinary gift. She touched millions of people and she'll be missed."

Bracco Opens Up About Cheating On Keitel


The Sopranos Lorraine Bracco Harvey Keitel Edward James Olmos

The Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco regrets cheating on husband Harvey Keitel with actor Edward James Olmos - calling her decision "immature".
The actress' infidelity sparked a lengthy and messy custody battle with Keitel over their daughter Stella and sent her spiralling into a dark depression.
And, now she's back in control of her emotions and the fighting is over, Bracco is looking back on the affair she had with Olmos as a mistake.
Speaking candidly on yesterday's (24May07) Oprah show in America, the star said, "Eddie was a lovely man and, in all retrospect, Harvey is a good man... It was an immature choice.
"I was on that river in Egypt, called denial! And I wasn't mature enough or smart enough or willing to accept that I was unhappy in that relationship."
The actress was diagnosed with clinical depression during her marriage to Olmos - something that weighed heavy on her daughter, who is now 22.
Stella, who also appeared in a segment on the Oprah show, revealed, "Watching the person who is supposed to be taking care of you in pain is the hardest part.
"It was hard for me because I felt responsible. She fought to make me happy - for me to have the life that I wanted, and I think it took a lot out of her... I just wanted to make it all OK, and I couldn't."

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.
