Review :


I feel like I’ve seen this movie before. Oh wait, no I just seen this story done a million and one times. It’s your average story of two guys fighting over a girl but throw in a off beat spy side plot into it. Now don’t get me wrong the film isn’t bad, but it isn’t anything special.

Now the cast is decent enough. Reese Witherspoon plays a role that she is a little too old for and is pretty much the same. Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are surprising decent enough. Tom Hardy is the standout star and the few short action scenes that they have flow pretty well. Now only if the action scenes weren’t few and far between and didn’t last a few minutes at that. Chelsea Handler plays her normal self, makes me want to punch her in the fact as her character (she’s being herself) is annoying beyond belief. Too bad her character didn’t die some random death in film, might have made it better.

The movie itself is funny enough with none of the jokes being too memorable or new. It does make me wonder how these 2 government agents are each using a full team of workers to spy and hack into this girls life and all they had to do was say it was pertaining to a mission. I mean really, no one would ask more or someone over their level wouldn’t look into it.

Overall though the movie is worth a watch as it will keep you entertained for a bit, just don’t expect anything too good or new.

One thought on “This Means War (2012) Movie Review”

  1. Nice review! I’d definitely have to agree with you about this film. It was entertaining enough, but definitely forgettable. I wouldn’t consider it a worthy purchase either, but it did do its job as a rental. I rented it with my Blockbuster @Home package a couple days ago, and just watched it last night after getting it in the mail. Tom Hardy was probably my favorite part of the whole film, in addition to the small amount of action sequences. Even before I saw the movie one of my coworkers at Dish ruined the ending for me by telling me which of the two guys she chose, but I wasn’t at all hurt about that because the movie was so predictable, and pretty much let that out of the closet before half the movie was over. I don’t know what she was thinking, come on its Tom Hardy, Lol! 🙂
