Ok, so Denzel Washington's push for Oscar glory with 'Flight' didn't quite work out, but he's dusted himself down and got back in the saddle for '2 Guns' - a fairly standard though entertaining looking heist-action movie, also starring Mark Wahlberg. The famous duo play Marcus Stigman and Bobby Trench, two cops sent undercover by their respective departments to investigate separate drug organizations. They don't realise the other is also a cop, though soon figure it out after uncovering millions of dollars from a Mexican drug cartel.

The oddball pair realise they must work together to bring down the real criminals while they themselves are wanted dead or alive. The trailer hints at something half-decent with some nice touches of humor, though it's likely to be your average cop movie. Adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by director Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) and screenwriter Blake Masters (Blake Masters), 2 Guns sees Wahlberg in familiar territory, though his recent output has been commercially successful despite not appealing to the critics.

His next projects include Peter Berg's 'Lone Survivor', action-comedy 'Good Time Gang' with Jonah Hill and the forthcoming Transformers sequel. He is also working on an Entourage movie.

'2 Guns' hits theaters in the US on August 2, 2013.
