McG directs as if on autopilot, and while the action scenes are technically proficient they're so lacking in energy and momentum you kind of wonder if the adrenaline junkie wunderkind threw them in as some sort of afterthought.
I have never been in a movie screening that had such a divided reaction as This Means War; on one side film critics moaning and groaning from start to finish, on the other a young audience laughing and cheering through every scene.
This Means War gleefully stirs together the spy caper and rom-com genres, and with Charlie's Angel director McG at the helm the resulting mash-up is everything you'd expect: brash, loud and spectacularly dumb.
