This Means War Reviews

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.
Full Review | 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 40/100
February 17, 2012
Witherspoon is a delight and those new franchise guys (Pine with Trek 2, Hardy the upcoming Dark Knight sequel) make engaging frenemies.

Judging by the evidence, it isn't easy making a good romantic comedy, even if it has a high-concept premise like this one...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.1/2
February 17, 2012
It takes a special kind of ignorance to make Tom Hardy boring, to make Chris Pine unlikable, and to make Reese Witherspoon unattractive.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

The best you can say about This Means War is that it would make a good date movie for couples in the witness protection program.
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 17, 2012
The boneheaded, humorless This Means War cranks out clichés with such frequency that it easily qualifies as an early contender for the most awful film of 2012.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Slides by on the strength of Tom Hardy.

February 17, 2012
It's an absurdly bright, peppy affair that's clearly been test-screened to death in order to find the "perfect" balance of action and romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

This means wah?

February 17, 2012
I guess we should call this a spy-comedy-action-romance. Or just call it what it is: dreadful.

And we have our first lock for the Worst of the Year list.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/5

It has plenty for the eyes and ears, but nothing for the brain.
February 17, 2012
...starts off really badly then upticks slightly due to the great chemistry between...Chris Pine and Tom Hardy...until you begin to think about the plot and the whole thing gets kind of icky.

Not even cutie-pie Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon can hold our attention for long in this ridiculous, bombastic romance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 17, 2012
This Means War overcomes the eternal triangle genre's flaws with unique twists on the basic premise. Lots of them.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 17, 2012
A disaster on a conceptual level, McG's latest is a trainwreck of botched stunts, unfunny gags, and tuneless performances, pieced together with minimal interest in any sort of engaging cinematic clarity.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
February 17, 2012
Not the worst, certainly not the best of its rom-action genre. But thanks to Chelsea Handler, there are some scream-out-loud moments. But oh, for some snap and sizzle!
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
February 17, 2012
Exhaustingly slick from start to finish...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
