  • Steve Persall

    2 Guns is a movie based on smart callbacks and sly flip-flops of loyalty, regularly interrupted by spasms of well-staged violence.

    2 Guns is a much-needed reminder that the best summer surprises can come when you least expect them.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Could this be the late-emerging hit movie of summer 2013? No chance, although if this was August 1987, a time when we allowed action films to be smart on their own dumb terms, it might have cleaned up.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    For a movie with so many twists in it, 2 Guns never really jerks us around. This is what some summer movies should be like — clever in a stupid way, and stupid in a clever way.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Pure charisma is sometimes the best special effect. That’s what Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg bring to 2 Guns, and after a season full of superhero duds, they deliver a crucial dose of cool.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • William Goss

    In a season stuffed with empty eye candy, 2 Guns comes along as something of a welcome burrito — plenty satisfying and hardly nutritious. Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    With a sharp and funny if sometimes convoluted script by Blake Masters and slick, pulpy direction from Baltasar Kormakur, and of course that first-rate cast, 2 Guns rises above standard action fare.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    You've seen all this before, and many times. 2 Guns works because it's essentially several riffs on familiar material. Cliché is not a bad thing if it's done right. Full Review
  • Adam Nayman

    Wahlberg, whose dim-bulb act was over-exposed in Pain and Gain, fares better here in a more heroic role. Stig is a hothead and a narcissist, but he’s also just a little bit smarter than he looks. The same goes for 2 Guns as a whole.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The director mixes the colors of his palette carefully. He uses (but never overuses) slow-motion, aerial shots, extreme close-ups and quick cuts, avoiding any self-consciously “stylish” display. He varies the pace of scenes and the angle of shots enough to keep the movie flowing, but we never feel we’re watching someone show us how clever he is.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The movie is loud, fun, quick moving, and features some nice acting turns.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Mr. Kormakur sets and keeps up a fast rather than frantic pace that never runs the movie off the rails even when the story nearly does.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    2 Guns is both enjoyable trash and a fascinating snapshot of Hollywood’s current mentality when it comes to the United States government. Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Kormákur lets his stars balance the buddy-movie levity with just enough dramatic weight to keep it grounded, and his directing style seems like a conscious corrective to the disorienting cutting and obvious CGI effects that have come to dominate Hollywood action films.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • John DeFore

    The picture survives its excesses thanks to winning chemistry between stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, who animate banter-heavy dialogue and click so well one wonders why they haven't shared the screen before.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Kormakur shows he knows his way around an action movie better than most, keeping the pace quick, the banter lively and the old-school, mostly CGI-free thrills delivering right on schedule.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Maybe it’s just an expression of relief after a summer of superheroes and fantasy scenarios, but 2 Guns is a refreshing blast.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    With border crossings and familiar buddy-cop movie tropes (think Lethal Weapon, think 48 HRS, think The Heat), the Wahlberg-Washington express hits lots of comfortably familiar notes. And more than a few viciously uncomfortable ones, too.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The actors — including Patton as Bobby's DEA colleague and sometime fling — cannot act what is not there. But with Washington, Wahlberg, Olmos and Paxton around jockeying for dominance, the standoffs have their moments.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Neil Alcock

    This does a serviceable job homaging '80s actioners but not a whole lot more. Go for the explosions, zone out for the plot.

    Empire Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Washington and Wahlberg are an effective double act in an intermittently exciting thriller with more twists than it needs. We’d love to see them partnered again, though perhaps as characters.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Wahlberg and Washington are so good together, quips flying as fast as lead, that much is forgiven.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It’s essentially a buddy-cop romp with the usual assortment pack of graphic gruesomeness.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    As in "Contraband," Kormákur offers a hint of a political statement, in this case about the inherent potential for corruption whenever competing government agencies are operating in international territory. But it doesn’t quite make it. On almost every level, 2 Guns is content to be as flavorless and forgettable as its title.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Hypermacho but tongue-in-cheek, the first 20 minutes of 2 Guns are enormous fun.

    NPR Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    By its conclusion the story has worked so hard to be twisting and clever that it runs out of steam and becomes outlandish, marked by a surplus of violence — too often casual and gratuitous — for what essentially is a buddy cop movie.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The movie has style but increasingly little sense.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Savvy filmgoers will know they are getting a stale product as soon as they see the wrapper: one of those vintage muscle cars that screams “stakeout.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The phrase “casting is everything” has never felt truer than it does with 2 Guns, an unremarkable, standard-issue shoot-em-up that rests entirely on the charisma of its two stars.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Hell, I really meant to at least like 2 Guns. But I couldn't. The movie just didn't make the extra effort.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Viewer/character solidarity only holds up for so long, and the film falls hard into twisty, nonsense territory, skipping over its stronger themes in the process.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    This is a here today, gone tomorrow trifle, albeit one with lots of gunplay. In midsummer, that may be enough, but it's still a shame that 2 Guns shoots so many blanks.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    There’s nothing about 2 Guns that doesn’t feel prefab, like someone poured a packet of Insta-Movie into a glass of water.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    There is a fair amount of not sufficiently witty or lovable banter, and Paula Patton gets to play Katharine Ross to their Butch and Sundance. She really has nothing to do except pose fetchingly in her underwear. Not much firepower.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Trevor Johnston

    Complications escalate to a tiresome degree, leeching the fun from the movie, which is slung together with cold competence (and not much more) by jobbing Icelandic maverick Baltasar Kormákur.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    While Washington and Wahlberg help make sure the flawed 2 Guns isn't too bad, it's hard not to think that it could have been better.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    When does banter turn to blather? In the case of this action adventure, which was directed by Baltasar Kormákur, it's when you realize that keeping track of the barely fathomable plot isn't worth the bother.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Though individual set pieces are well done, the film inevitably leaves an empty taste behind it once it's done.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    They’re cute together, these two big stars, but the film around them, a sort of Tarantino lite, is desperately empty.

    Time Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    2 Guns quickly degenerates into boilerplate Hollywood sound and fury, complete with a climactic Mexican standoff that revolves around a massive, burning pile of money. Irony, thou art lost.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Not every movie can come from the heart: This one is from the crotch. But what’s left for the sequel? Maybe it’ll feature Mark and Denzel sporting matching leather codpieces or giving each other bikini waxes. We can only hope.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    2 Guns feels like it’s all been done before, whether by John Woo, Michael Bay or any number of their CGI-happy clones.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It's a complete mess, the spectacle of filmmakers blowing up their movie and everything in it, because they can't think of anything else to do.
