There is no reason anyone will not like "This means war". It is all good fun, ridiculous, with likeable leads and supporting cast. There is some police gun shots but compare to what's in the theatres, it is kindergarten stuff. Basically you can name this movie as "101 ways to woo a girl." Tom Hardy can actually smile? That is a revelation especially for fans who only knows him in Mad Max or Batman. He is very funny in an unassuming way. Are Chris Pine's electric blue eyes for real? Or is it some kind of special effects? Reese Witherspoon returns to what she does best (although she is a little too old for the part). Go and enjoy it.
The potential in action-comedy is there, and yet so many tend to come churned out in the middle ground, being neither funny nor entertaining. There isn't much to say, except that this is trite, boring, and criminally unfunny.
Very nice and enjoyable movie, nice romantic action flick with some very good moments. Great performance from Tom Hardy who always surprises me with his range of acting skills and diversity in his roles
I love Reese Witherspoon so I had to see this knowing that it could be really bad and although it wasn't spectacular, it was fun to sit through and it also had two hilarious scenes. This kinda reminded me of Killers and The Bounty Hunter, but it was much better than both of those although Killers wasn't all bad either. The chemistry between the 3 leads was good (especially the guys). Not the best of the year but RECOMMENDED for people that want to enjoy a 2 hour movie.
