The world needs another Lethal Weapon-esque action duo—might Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg fill that role? You certainly couldn't ask for a better pair of physically capable and comedically savvy box office draws than the pair, present in Contraband director Baltasar Kormakur's adaptation of the Boom! Studios graphic novel about a DEA agent and Naval Intelligence Officer, equally hot-headed, joining forces to make the CIA pay for setting them up.
And what if 2 Guns turns out to be, well, another Contraband (read: narratively challenged)? There's always former Complex cover girl Paula Patton, the film's most appealing co-star. Her participation is always a plus.
