Mark Wahlberg actually does a fine fool. I like him when he plays a slightly dumb, if well meaning, character—like his character John in Ted. And he had his daft back on for 2 Guns which a good shoot-em-up, blow-em-up, crash-em, bang-em, race-em, chase-em kind of movie. [Spoiler alert: stop here if you don't want to know any more] One naval intelligence officer and one DEA officer, unaware of each other's non-undercover roles, rob a bank (with slightly shaky, but sanctioned reasons) to steal the money of the drug cartal they are both individually investigating. They get a whole lot more money than they bargained for, and it turns out to belong to people much worse than Mexican drug lords. I won't spoil all the surprise and tell you whose it is, but they are now in a lot more trouble than they thought. They find out about each other's real lives, but with their respective agencies dumping them due to a whole number of reasons, they have to help each other get out of this one. Slightly Tarantino-esque in its cinematography and violence which gave the film an entertaining graphic quality. Is it just me though, or are Denzel Washington's teeth slightly weird—too big or something. I liked it. Maybe not a rush-to-the-movies one, but if it's cheap that day, and you can spend a lazy afternoon eating junkfood and having a bevvy while you watch something that makes you laugh, that's not a total waste of an afternoon.
Who wore it better?
