McG's film ticks the expected action boxes easily enough but, as per usual, is not designed to be taken remotely seriously.
| Original Score: 3/5
One suspects the perpetrators of this cinematic crime spent Valentine's Day alone.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Lack of Focus ruins this War.
| Original Score: 2.0/4.0
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A lively pace and a nicely warped sense of humour help make this paper-thin action-comedy a mindlessly enjoyable romp.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Pine proved he had star potential in the Star Trek reboot and Hardy was great in Inception and Warrior, but they should avoid comedy - at least with a script this insipid
| Original Score: 2/4
Moronic, misguided and just plain pervy.
Buddy spies vie for the same girl in a loud, pushy romantic comedy.
The director is McG, who allows no motion to pass without a musical energy boost.
a frothy romp of a popcorn flick brightened by witty writing and a cast that get laughs by expertly playing it straight with a plausibly implausible plot.
| Original Score: 4/5
A trio of talent makes this rom com much better than it should be
| Original Score: 7/10
The cast deserves better and certainly audiences do as well.
| Original Score: 1/4
Three fun stars seem to be enjoying the ride in this fast-paced romantic romp.
As for the resolution of the romantic triangle angle ... well, let's just say that the filmmakers would have been hard-pressed to come up with a worst ending.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
I didn't want either of the two guys to earn her affections. They're both superficial jerks - an opinion that didn't change throughout the entire film.
| Original Score: C-
Guns fire. Cars careen. Paintballs hit crotches. Reese Witherspoon bugs her eyes. Chris Pine acts like an ass. Tom Hardy looks disinterested. Repeat. Vomit.
| Original Score: 1/5
While the premise had potential, the execution leaves a lot to be desired and strands three charismatic performers up on the screen trying to make something of it. They don't. (Parental Movie Review also available)
"This Means War" is the worst McG film yet. And good Lord, that is saying something.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
Pine and Hardy have about as much chemistry going on as a high school where all the science teachers are out sick.
| Original Score: 40/100
Witherspoon is a delight and those new franchise guys (Pine with Trek 2, Hardy the upcoming Dark Knight sequel) make engaging frenemies.
| Original Score: B-
