By Suzzane Marshall from the January 2014 Edition
Starring: Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg
Directed by: Baltasar Kormaker
Running Time: 109 minutes
A DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who have been tasked with investigating one another find they have been set up by the mob — the very organization the two men believe they have been stealing money from.
I enjoyed this movie and had a few good laughs too. I am a fan of Denzel and Mark. They can deliver lines with great comedic timing. Yes, it’s violent here and there but it is a crime thriller/comedy/drama so you can expect that. The movie is fast paced and there is never a dull moment.
I’m not sure why the ratings are coming in at slightly under 7 out of 10 but it may be that unique crime stories are hard to come by these days. I know my network of friends would really enjoy this one.
