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.
