2 GUNS ( MA15+)

IF Quentin Tarantino was con­trac­tu­ally obliged to do a boil­er­plate Bad Boys- style ac­tion movie, here is what would hap­pen. While the bul­lets are in plen­ti­ful sup­ply through­out, it is the ban­ter that re­ally goes off with a bang here. When you have ac­tors of the cal­i­bre of Den­zel Wash­ing­ton and Mark Wahlberg tak­ing care­ful aim with some well­writ­ten ver­bal pot­shots, a so- so ac­tion pic­ture can fleet­ingly be­come so, so good. Con­cep­tu­ally, this is one of those knot­ted crime yarns where noth­ing is ever what it seems and noone is ever to be trusted. A brash burst of guilty- plea­sure es­capism, in­stantly in- your- face and then just as soon off your mind.
