2 Guns Reviews: Buddy Cop Burnout?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

2 Guns hits theaters this weekend as yet another buddy cop movie this summer. It seems as if there have been plenty representations of the genre this summer, but that isn't stopping Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington from teaming up.

Do the 2 Guns reviews reflect the star power of the two stars or fatigue of the genre on the part of the viewing public?

Let's see what the critics have to say, then you can compare them to the The Smurfs 2 reviews and make your weekend plans!
