I am a huge fan of Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg’s but all I got out of the trailer for their new film together ‘2 Guns’ is complete confusion. The premise is a Special Forces Soldier and a DEA Agent who rob a bank of $40million and are both under cover somehow and oh both somehow run afoul of the CIA. Say What? I THINK The concept is that two men one a DEA agent and one Special Forces rob a bank to try and gain access to a narcotics crime boss but even that I am not so sure about having watched the trailer. Synopsis and trailer below you tell me, whats this all about again?
For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.
When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.
