2 GUNS is an action thriller about a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence Officer who are tasked with investigating each other.


The strong language includes several uses of 'f**k' and a single use of 'motherf**ker'. There are also uses of 'bitch', 'cock' and milder bad language.


The violence includes a man having drawing pins whacked into his hand, with a brief close-up of him pulling the pins away from his skin. There are a couple of sequences in which a banker performs a Russian roulette routine, first with a veterinary surgeon and then with one of the main characters. The vet is shot in the leg, with some detail of the impact and a large blood spatter onto the banker's face. In the other scene, after the gun fails to go off, the bullets are unloaded into the chest of a dying man on the floor, with some blood spurts. In another scene, the main characters are strung up, upside down, in a bull pen and hit in the chests with a bat. In the final shoot-out, the heroes shoot fallen men to finish them off, with small blood spurts from the chest.

The film also contains some moderate sex references and breast nudity within a sexual context.

There are drug references throughout the film, but these are just references to the bad guys 'dealing' and we don't see any drug use at all.
