This sounds like a nice payday for the stars and a completely generic "been there, done that" plot.

Contraband was so ho hum. Not expecting much from this at all.

I like Denzel too. I enjoy most of Wahlberg's movies as fluff entertainment. Contraband, which he did with this director, was a decent, but forgettable B movie.

The trailer has a very light and comedic tone to it. Definitely doesn't look like a badass action flick.

I did like the shots of Paula Patton in her panties.

I'll get it for my Paxton collection. Wahlberg has grown on me, never thought that would have happened. Still can't stand DW.

Ditto.

No Oscar nom for Denzel this time, but looks good.

Can't get away from this trailer whenever I see an action movie in theaters. I'll probably rent it.

Interestingly, this thread didn't come up in search for me under "denzel guns." Perhaps because the movie title wasn't in the text of the thread even though it was in the title? I think I found it searching for "denzel mark."

The best line of the trailer was Paxton saying...

"Did I properly Incentivize you?"

I am already sick of seeing the trailer.

Well, sure, if you cheat and use google rather than searching this particular forum with the site tools...

Watched this today. It's pretty entertaining. Walhberg and Washington have good chemistry. Also thought Edward James Olmos as the Mexican drug kingpin was good.

This is what "Smokin' Aces" should have been. Alot more fun. It's a fun way to waste a couple hours.

That being said I don't really see myself buying this a copy of this when it comes out on DVD/Blu.

I would be very surprised if we don't get a sequel as well. Wahlberg and Washington seemed to really enjoy making this and I'm sure they'd be up for more.

Yes, I'm pretty sure they enjoyed making this as they were being paid millions of dollars.

Look at how much Bruce Willis gets paid. He looks bored in every other movie. Doesn't mean shit.

Washington and Wahlberg had great chemistry and look like they had a ball making the movie. Paula is hot but her voice kinda annoys the hell out of me.

very entertaining movie with 2 likable stars.

Saw it. Entertaining but nothing exceptional. The chemistry between Wahlberg and Washington keeps this movie afloat. I couldn't help but wonder if at one point this was going to be directed by Tony Scott. It had a lot of his trademark elements.

-Denzel Washington
-Lots of action and drug lords.

Spoiler:
A finale that involved all conflicted parties shooting at each other.
