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.

Can [McG's] films get worse?
March 3, 2012
Easily consumable, puerile entertainment with some devilish giggles to be had; the action romantic's must-see in a sense.

March 2, 2012
Entertainment at its fluffiest but as a date movie with some genuine laughs, it works - just overlook the voyeuristic undertones and you'll have fun.

Hardy struggles to find his comic timing to soften his bruising hard man image while Pine mugs shamelessly.
March 2, 2012
A film during which very bad things happen very often, and none of them are noticeably funnier than genital trauma brought on by an air rifle.

March 1, 2012
McG fails to conjure up any exciting or original set-pieces so it falls flat as an action film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 1, 2012
Hardy, Pine and Witherspoon manage to inject just enough charm to make it bearable.

Not funny, just creepy.

All sorts of laugh-free and unrelaxed shenanigans.

No. More. McG. Please.

March 1, 2012
A ridiculous plot is punctuated by out of place action scenes and a chronic lack of humour

The only outward emotion you'll experience will be if someone chokes on a piece of popcorn in a nearby seat.

February 29, 2012
Well acted and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, thanks to engaging performances and a script that successfully excuses its slightly dodgy premise.

This Means War is much like its protagnists, a strange mixture of soulessness and trying way too hard - and, frankly, no one likes a date who is quite so keen to impress.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 29, 2012
Yet another case of Hollywood execs trying way too hard to give the audience what they think it wants.

I'd call this How to Lose a Spy in 10 Days, except all along I was rooting for nothing but for Witherspoon to realize what a couple of jerks both guys are and to dump them both...
February 27, 2012
The more I think about this film, the more upset I get.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

The guns might suggest it's shaping up to be an action spy caper, but it's just the wrapping for a romcom, like when pet owners shape mince into pellets to conceal medication from their dog.
