“Part of why I’ve put off this post is that I really have no clue what to say about this movie. I’ve seen some reviews that are praising it as being something unique and fun for the summer, but I don’t see it. To me, it seemed like Mark Walhberg being Mark Walhberg and Denzel Washington being Denzel Washington.
I suppose some of the details of the premise were original. Both seem to be thugs trying to rob a bank and take down a drug cartel, but the twist is that they’re each undercover agents for different federal organizations. They’re trying to maintain their cover as a baddie, while working for the good guys. And then the plans all go to hell. And get really twisty and a lil confusing.
Some of the praise was directed towards the guys seeming like they were having a good time, and I’ll give them that. It was a fun ride, but it’s not one that I’m gonna remember the next day. Basically take both of Walhberg’s characters from earlier this year (Broken City and Pain & Gain) and you’ve got him here. I feel it was a similar rehash for Denzel.
