2 Guns by Baltasar Kormákur, 2013 (R)

Two special agents -- one Naval intelligence, one DEA -- partner for an undercover sting against a drug cartel that takes a serious wrong turn. Disavowed by their agencies, the pair goes on the run while trying to find out who set them up.

In a mix of Tarantino and Soderbergh, the movie starts to never end tricking the audience into a dark scenario of undercover agents and corrupted national agencies. The two main characters are witty, playing ping pong with words and each other, the bad guys are really bad ass, and the action relentless. You can feel the touch of Kormákur, in the way he blurs the audience into a twisty scenario, just like in Contraband.
