The plot in short: A DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer find themselves on the run after a botched attempt to infiltrate a drug cartel. While fleeing, they learn the secret of their shaky alliance: Neither knew that the other was an undercover agent.
The movie works great because of many explosive action scenes, a good dose of dry humor and an authentic acting performance from all main actors. The story is your usual conspiracy flick which gets a little bit predictable. In the end, there was one scene that happened too quickly for me to fully understand it when one of the main actors found the stolen money but apart of that the movie has a vivid but not hectic pace and is easy to follow. The side story with the cop’s superior portrayed by Paula Patton was too constructed and somewhat unnecessary to me and took the attention away from the main issue but nothing’s perfect.
Fans of the two main actors and conspiracy flicks shouldn’t miss this one out. This movie is far from being revolutionary but it’s entertaining and definitely worth a walk to the movie theaters. You can see it once and truly enjoy it from the beginning until the end but it doesn’t request more attention.
