Performers, Cast and Crew:
USA Today - 08/02/2013
"The saving grace of the film is the chemistry between Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as a pair of undercover lawmen..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/02/2013
"The two stars are great together as undercover lawmen teamed up against a common foe."
RogerEbert.com - 08/02/2013
3 stars out of 4 -- "The tone, pacing and staging of the action sequences are pleasantly surprising. This is a slower, more meditative film than advertised, finding time for quirkiness and humorous banter alongside the explosions."
Rolling Stone - 08/01/2013
"Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are great company. "
Variety - 07/30/2013
"Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg make for an enjoyable pair in this fleet, unpretentious caper pic from Baltasar Kormakur."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/01/2013
"[Washington and Wahlberg] cut loose and seem to be having a blast swapping below-the-belt insults as a pair of undercover agents posing as drug dealers." -- Grade: B+
Hollywood Reporter - 07/30/2013
"[Featuring the] winning chemistry between stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, who animate banter-heavy dialogue and click so well, one wonders why they haven't shared the screen before."
Empire - 08/08/2013
3 stars out of 5 -- "This does a serviceable job homaging '80s actioners....Go for the explosions..."
Total Film - 08/17/2013
3 stars out of 5 -- "Kormákur nimbly stages the various shoot-outs, stand-offs and punch-ups and choreographs one enjoyably bold incursion at a Texas air base."
