Even in a summer landscape dotted with superhero franchises, big-budget sequels and formulaic effects-laden action movies, Hollywood has left room for the movie stars. It's always nice to see a movie in the mix that doesn't feel the need to rely on anything except its own old-school cool.

Denzel Washington is a movie star. He's one of the most recognizable film actors on the planet, at ease whether he's onscreen in critically acclaimed awards bait or big box office popcorn movies. No matter the project, Denzel elevates it and makes it his own not a bad definition of 'movie star.' Mark Wahlberg isn't quite a movie star, but he's a lot closer than you might think. He doesn't have the range of someone like Denzel, but he's found a way to use what limited range he does have extremely effectively.
