My review about the movie 2 Guns:
First of all, I liked 2 Guns.
The plot of 2 Guns was enjoyable. Although the plot didn’t feel completely solid, and you may feel something missing in the plot, but still, you should enjoy it. Its true that the director could include some more interesting events in the plot to make it feel solid, but it seemed good nonetheless. The direction and the screenplay were also beautiful. They are good enough to keep you trilled, attached and entertained for the whole movie till the end.
The casting of 2 Guns seemed perfect and all the artists has played their parts very well. The characters of Danzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg were completely different but they mixed togather beautifully. You won’t be able to complain about any of the other characters too. The dialogues were hillarious and entertaining. The mixture of comedy and thrill has also played out nicely, like the Bad Boys movies.
The music and sound effects of 2 Guns also felt good. The lighting, camera works, costumes and the locations were good too. In the movie, you will see a limited use of special effects, but all of them will seem perfectly matched.
A nude scene and some killing scenes make 2 Guns not appropriate for children.
So, overall, 2 Guns seemed as a good movie. It had a little weak point at its plot, but perfection at every other thing has made it enjoyable. Hopefully, you will have a great time passes by watching 2 Guns. I’ll definitely recommend watching 2 Guns to all movie fans.
