Another bland, boring and misfire of a romantic comedy, this film could have been terrific, but it wastes all its potential on such a lacking script that elements that normally would gel together simply don't. Instead, This Mean War is a tedious affair, a film that relies on genr...

This was an enjoyable film, good to see that there are a few big budget Action/Rom-Coms being made that have a great balance of action and humour. Similar to True lies, Knight & Day and Date Night so if you liked any of those you'll enjoy this to.

Unsurprisingly enough an average, unfunny comedy.
Amoungst the Love triangle, there's a pointless understory, undeveloped characters and not enough action to make this movie any more exciting.

A fun and cheeky film with some good comedy, but the end is a total sell out. I won't recommend it, purely because the end is so terrible. Neither male characters are desirable by the end which makes me feel this film is pointless.

"It would just be two stars but Tom Hardy is worth the extra half. Now to the movie. It wasn't as funny as I was hoping. The action, when there was some, was pretty good. I enjoyed it more then I did the comedy part. Chris Pine makes it easy to love him in this movie with that sm...

I enjoyed this. I do have a soft spot for Reese's movies. I find her very cute, funny, and sweet. Plus, I am a Tom Hardy fan...very much so! On that note, I may be a bit biased, but I found this movie very enjoyable.

Why? Why did anyone think this would have been a good idea? Two spies fall for the same girl and have to duke it out for her heart. First off, NO ONE IN THIS FILM IS LIKEABLE! Each person in the love triangle either lie and or cheat on a person with another person. Chris Pin...

You can easily see the initial appeal of this film. With a good mixture of comedy, romance, and action, it seems like the perfect date movie for those couples that subscribe to gender genres. Something for the girls and something for the boys. This Means War has two CIA agents ba...

A sexy and stylish action-comedy. It`s swift, smart, outragious and wickedly enjoyable movie thats loaded with explosive action, crisp romance and great humor from start to finish. A perfect blend of a spy-action film mixed with romance and buddy comedy. A wildy hilarious and ext...

Nothing new to see here in this movie, every single scene feels as though it has been ripped off from another movie. Also, Reece Witherspoon is TERRIBLE! She cannot act, has no comic timing and has a head like a skull with skin stretched across it.
