2 Guns

Umm. There was only one actor in Hollywood that I wanted to be like growing up. I studied all his films, and even tried to imitate his smooth walk. There's only one actor in Hollywood that can go from boy band, to solo singing career, to headlining some of the better action "every man's man" type of films. The combination of the two is never something that I would have pictured, but since it has been done, I can't wait to see this movie.

Academy Award(R) winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in 2 Guns, an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent. 

Washington's presence in any film makes me willing to pay the ticket price. This just looks like a fun buddy, action, crime drama that will entertain. It's set to release in August in theaters nationwide.


Kevin Sampson

The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic, but a writer, producer, and director as well makes his understanding of cinema even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing and creating great works. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, podcast, and hour long film review TV show that runs on Arlington Independent Media’s public access station in Arlington, VA. The show covers new releases, classic films, and interviews with local filmmakers in the DMV area. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association. He is currently looking forward to filming his first feature film in the near future. He believes that film is one of the most powerful art forms in the world, and he hopes that he can use the craft to inspire others and make a difference in it.
