Tom Hardy & Chris Pine in the same movie?!? My dream has come true!
You're know what you're getting with a film by McG - something loud, empty-headed and more akin to cinematic fast food. This Means War stretches credibility with a plot that shouldn't even work in the movie world, let alone the real world. Two competitive CIA agents (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy) who seem to have plenty of time on their hands, go head-to-head as they try to win over the charms of Reese Witherspoon... like she's the only woman in Los Angeles. The playful banter and rapport between Pine and Hardy as they try to upstage each other is fun to watch, but Witherspoon is wasted in a role that's beneath her comedic talent. A lazy sub-plot is added in about a German bad guy, but there's no sense of any real danger. It's all completely predictable and Hollywood-manufactured. If you've seen the trailer, then you've pretty much seen the film.
I went into this movie not expecting too much and that I could "check my brain at door". It was better than I expected and I enjoyed it - good laughs, a great cast, even if they are not exactly exercising their talent here but enjoyable all the same. The showing I attended seemed to enjoy it too. Ignore the critics and if you want a easy going movie to pass a couple of hours I would say This Means War is a good one to pick
I watched this movie yesterday and in my opinion it was great! Light-hearted with lots of action, a hint of romance and loads of laughs, it ticked every box for me!!
Dear God this is one awful movie. Its only early March but its got to be a contender for Turkey of the Year 2012. It is a lazy, trite, unfunny flat turd of a movie that goes nowhere, has zero laughs & zero chemistry between the leads. I dont know why the talented Tom Hardy signed up for this, if you want to see him in a great movie please rent Warrior its out now, as for Reese Witherspoon, has she the same agent as Katherine Heigel or Jessica Biel? Please fire them now Reese, you aint getting good advice. There was next to no one at this screening, always a bad sign but please avoid this heap of garbage, save your money, rent Warrior instead!
