This all-action buddy movie courtesy of Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur pits Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as two criminal comrades with uncertain loyalties. It’s revealed early on that both men are secretly undercover for different government agencies and from there the pair begin to flit between being brothers in arms and bitter rivals. The plot sees the duo conduct a bank robbery, planning only to rob a relatively meagre amount from a drug cartel, only to ultimately wind up robbing considerably more from the CIA. Soon the pair are engaged in a criss-crossing game of cat and mouse involving the DEA, Naval Intelligence, CIA and the Cartel.
