Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Yet another case of Hollywood execs trying way too hard to give the audience what they think it wants."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"The best you can say about This Means War is that it would make a good date movie for couples in the witness protection program."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"This Means War finds all new ways to insult 50% of the world's population. Women, hey? Who needs 'em? Not men, that's who! Until they do, I guess"
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"It's not the most realistic spy film or the most tear-enducing romance; however, This Means War works as a middle-of-the-road guilty pleasure."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"This Means War remains a vapid, rushed effort that pays little attention to its characters in favour of making sure it hits every comedy and action beat on time with a reliable but ultimately tuneless drum."
‑ Matt Looker,
"The director is McG, who allows no motion to pass without a musical energy boost."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Slides by on the strength of Tom Hardy."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"The film's three charming leads help make this superficial comedy worth seeing."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Being a little absurd is acceptable, but completely throwing reality out the window in a film that tries to ground itself in it is pushing it too much."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"An unusually focused depiction of male courtship issues, albeit in a surface-y, mainstream sort of fashion."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
""This Means War" is the worst McG film yet. And good Lord, that is saying something."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"And we have our first lock for the Worst of the Year list."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"The laziest, most cack-handed, most unromantic and most excruciatingly unfunny rom-com I can remember having to sit through."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"In a turn of events that utterly defies the terrible trailer that's been making the rounds for the last few months, This Means War actually proves to be an agreeably dim-witted combo of testosterone-fuelled action and an estrogen-friendly love story."
‑ Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
"Love is a battlefield in This Means War, and the three likable leads are the casualties."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
