QUICK TAKE:
Action/Dramedy: Two undercover agents must not only deal with discovering the true identities of each other, but also the fact that they've now been set up for a bank robbery they pulled off in hopes of bringing down a Mexican drug lord.
PLOT:
Robert 'Bobby" Trench (DENZEL WASHINGTON) and Marcus 'Stig' Stigman (MARK WAHLBERG) would appear to be two unlikely criminal partners who are dealing with the very dangerous Mexican drug lord, Papi Greco (EDWARD JAMES OLMOS). Unbeknownst to Bobby, Stig is actually an undercover Navy intelligence officer trying to bring down Greco. And much to Stig's surprise, Bobby is an undercover DEA agent who's also been after for the drug lord for several years.

They learn this after they decide to rob a Texas bank in hopes of gathering enough evidence to bring Greco down, only to discover it's not there but more than $43 million in cash is. It's then that they learn that they've been set up, Bobby by his boss, Jessup (ROBERT JOHN BURKE), and possibly his former girlfriend and fellow DEA agent, Deb (PAULA PATTON). For Stig, it's his Navy superior, Quince (JAMES MARSDEN). To make matters worse, a sadistic CIA official, Earl (BILL PAXTON), wants the money back and doesn't care about any collateral damage he might create in doing so.

Realizing they can only trust each other, Bobby and Stig team up in a new way to figure out what's going on, bring down the various "bad guys" and keep themselves from getting killed.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
