There are two kinds of machismo. The first is authentic. It comes from guys who are confident, tough, and perhaps a little cocky. The other is posturing. It’s a puffed-up chest and a general over-compensation for a variety of obvious weaknesses. 2 Guns has both, but far more of the latter than the former. The chemistry between leads Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg provide all the spark, verve, and excitement the rest of the picture lacks. Outside of its two leads, Baltasar Kormakur‘s action movie is a lumbering, convoluted mess of various players shuffling around the protagonists through a series of limp set pieces.
