The film is directed by Peter Berg.  The noteworthy cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Eric Bana, Emile Hirsch, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Ludwig, Jerry Ferrera, and Scott Elrod.

American Hustle (2013) (Click on the title for my full review.)

David O. Russell has taken 3 stars from his film Silver Linings Playbook (2012) and 2 stars from his film The Fighter (2010), and brought all 5 of them together to make American Hustle (2013).  If The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook had a baby, it would be named American Hustle.

Not only is this film a guaranteed Oscar contender, but it will most likely be amazing.

The noteworthy cast includes Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Robert De NiroJennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Michael Pena, Jack Huston, Louis C.K., and Alessandro Nivola.

This film is a definite must-see.

It is set to release this Christmas, 12/25/13.

2 Guns (2013)


2 Guns Poster 2

2 Guns (2013)

Director Baltasar Kormakur pulled out the big guns for his new Action/Comedy 2 Guns.  With a cast that includes Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Bill Paxton, James Marsden, and Paula Patton, how could you go wrong?  This is the question that I asked myself.  My answer was that you most likely can’t go wrong.  I was very excited to see this film, so I caught one of the first showings.

2 Guns Washington Wahlberg

The film is about an undercover DEA agent (Washington) and an undercover Special Forces officer (Wahlberg) that team up to get close to a drug cartel.  The catch: each man is unaware that the other is a cop.

The rest of the noteworthy cast includes Edward James Olmos, Fred Ward, Robert John Duke, and Patrick Fischler.

2 Guns Patton Washington

2 Guns is a high caliber adventure that is fully loaded with twists and turns, plenty of action, an amazing cast of edgy characters, lots of laughs, and a whole lot of fun.

Denzel Washington is one actor that has never really disappointed me.  He has always acted his heart out in every role that I have seen him in.  He is certainly one of the greats.  He is one of the most consistently solid actors of our time.  His role in 2 Guns is evidence that he has no intention of changing his ways or slowing down.  His character is suave and in control.  He lets his presence be known on screen.  If he were a Jedi, the force would be strong with this one.

2 Guns Wahlberg Washington Car

Mark Wahlberg’s acting ability has noticeably improved over the years.  It was never bad by any means, but he has definitely found his niche.  He has always taken a no-nonsense approach to his acting.  This has given his movies more intensity and energy.  Over time, he has learned to develop a different personality to each of the characters that he plays.  He has become very versatile.  In 2 Guns, he somehow managed to be funny and a badass.

The witty banter exchanged between Washington and Wahlberg was hilarious.  That, mixed with each man’s physical ability for violence made the movie very entertaining.  Their characters played off of each other wonderfully.

Besides Haywire (2011), I have not seen Paxton in anything great for a while.  This is his best film movie Frailty (2001).  He played a good tough-guy in this film.

There was never a dull moment in this movie.  If you are looking for a lot of action, some good laughs, great acting, and an overall awesome film experience, look no further than 2 Guns.  This movie has everything.  It’s the best Action/Comedy film so far this year, and will probably be the best of the year.

I rate this movie a 9 on a scale of 1-10.

Buy, rent, or run?  Buy.
