When I first saw the preview for This Means War, I thought, “this could be funny.” I wasn’t in any big hurry to see it at the theater, but figured it would be worth a rental. I thought the premise was weak, but I like both Chris Pine and Tom Hardy – plus Reese Witherspoon is usually a safe bet.
The film really didn’t even live up to my lowered expectations. Sure, there were some decent action scenes, but the comedy was weak and the “sexiness” missed the mark often.
If you have nothing else to watch, give it a go, but don’t expect to be laughing around the water cooler with friends about it later.
RATING 5 out of 10
