US NAVAL INTELLIGENCE OFFICER Marcus 'Stig' Stigman (Mark Wahlberg: Contraband; Ted) and DEA agent Robert 'Bobby' Trench (Denzel Washington: American Gangster; Training Day) have been working undercover as part of a narcotics syndicate for the past year without realising that each is working for a rival bureau.

While infiltrating a drug cartel working out of Sonora, Mexico, through their contact Little Toro, Bobby and Stig form an elaborate plan to relieve the cartel of three million dollars known to be held in safety deposit boxes at the Tres Cruces Bank

“Oh, shoot! It’s good.
Delivering superb thrills
with humour,
2Guns stirs up a barrel-
load of excitement
as two good men
rediscovering duty,
honour, loyalty and trust
fight for their lives
...”
With a mutual distrust of each other, the two undercover agents make a shocking discovery and find themselves in a number of dangerous situations as they both begin to realise that there are forces working against them from their respective agencies and that the pair of them have no choice but to work together to find out who has betrayed them.

The bad guys haven't reckoned on Bobby and Stig picking up a few tips along the way while struggling to keep their identities secret and posing as real bank robbers with explosive personalities. As they face the terrifying prospect of the corrupt agents at the top consigning them to their fate as rogue agents on the run, each must depend upon the other and united they must expose the truth behind the set-up even if they have to break into a US Naval base to do so!

Oh, shoot! It's good. Delivering superb thrills with humour, 2Guns stirs up a barrel-load of excitement as two good men rediscovering duty, honour, loyalty and trust fight for their lives.
