REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..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..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the film could probably stand to lose a plot twist or two. 2 Guns positions itself as a grittier breed of action movie-too bad it's not necessarily smarter..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen International]
“..it's still a shame that 2 Guns shoots so many blanks..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
“..Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg make for a very enjoyable pair of double-crossed undercover operatives in "2 Guns," another fleet, unpretentious caper pic from Icelandic auteur Baltasar Kormakur..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
2 of 5

“..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..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
