This was one feature that film fans had been hollering for throughout the summer! Two of Hollywood’s hot-daddies were billed as dual headliners in an action flick that was certain to entice audiences, while the theatrics lit up the big screen. Yes, 2 Guns did “bring the rain”!
The film begins with U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Mark Wahlberg) working with Drug Enforcement Agency agent Bobby Trench (Denzel Washington) on an undercover assignment to trace drug kingpins. Their mission has been to infiltrate the network of a Mexican drug cartel, and danger comes at every turn!
Stigman and Trench are not exactly friendly with one another, having been forced into partnership by their agencies. They realize that they must work together, as their mission can become lethal at any moment. This becomes especially dangerous with the allied addition of Trench’s girlfriend, Deb (Paula Patton) to their assignment. Now, the group must work together to track down and catch the drug traffickers while dealing with personal issues that have the potential to destroy the entire case!
