For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman 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.
“2 Guns” is an action packed movie about two undercover government agents who are unwittingly duped into robbing a bank. However, the score is much larger than originally believed and they suddenly realize that they’ve been had. The rest of the film takes the audience on a thrill ride of a chase as they attempt to resolve their unfortunate situation.
There were some humorous moments as the two agents quibble back and forth about the direction they will take to solve their dilemma. The story is mildly believable and the action plentiful but the nudity and frequent foul language prevent us from considering this a family film.
