This Means War | Movie review

This Means War 2012 film movie poster large
Malaysia Release Date: 23 February 2012
Rated: 18
Genre: Action romance comedy
Running Time: 1 Hour 38 Minutes
Director: McG
Cast: Tom Hardy, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine

Synopsis: "Two of the world's top secret agents are best friends who never let anything come between them -- until they inadvertently fall for the same woman. It's all-out war between them, as the two spies battle each other with high-tech surveillance, advanced tactics, and an arsenal capable of bringing down a small country. At the same time, she struggles with the difficult task of choosing between two very different, but equally attractive romantic propositions" (20th Century Fox).

Verdict: When typical chick flick meets cliche-ridden action film, this is what you'll get - unrealistic action scenes of a two-men CIA partnership defeating an army of bad guys armed with machine guns, same old overused romance plot with two guys going after the same girl that has a funny desperate best friend, simple cheap dirty humour, and predictable outcomes. This Means War is the exactly the type of movie its trailer indicates. But, strangely, it's still quite watchable. Thanks to the great on-screen chemistry between the three leading actors. It would've been better if this was seen yesterday (Valentine's Day). Now, I just can't imagine Tom Hardy as Bane in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises anymore.

The joke that most people won't get: [SPOILER BEGINS HERE] The great friendship and CIA partnership between Tuck (Tom Hardy) and FDR (Chris Pine) are affected in the process of wooing Lauren Scott (Reese Witherspoon). When Lauren realises that, she screams, "Oh my god, I'm Yoko!" Yoko Ono is the wife of the late music legend John Lennon, whom many fans of The Beatles accuse of being the main cause of the band's break-up. [SPOILER ENDS HERE]

Malaysian censorship: Only the obscene kissing and sex scenes are cut. If you really wanna see Reese Witherspoon naked, click here (18SX). It's her nude scenes from some other movie.

Rating: 2.5 / 5

  7. Nice review. All of these leads try their hardest, but the script just lets them down too much with terrible jokes and very ugly feeling underneath this premise. Check out my review when you get the chance.
