If they make a sequel, and they might because this film made a lot of money in August, the fact that they don't have to hide from one another will help the chemistry. Aside from the main leads, there are a lot of talented actors in this film. Paula Patton is here as Denzel's girlfriend and DEA agent does a nice job. It was nice to see her after Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. She's talented and has a more real world quality than some other actresses. Edward James Olmos, Bill Paxton, and James Marsden all play against type here. All are playing more grey or villainous roles, a turn from what you see them in. Edward James Olmos is almost unrecognizable here and does a great job as the Mexican Cartel leader. Bill Paxton plays a rougue agent and was fun to watch, a large turn from his Big Love role. Check this movie out any way you can. I really enjoyed it and I think you will to.
4 out of 5 stars
