This Means War
It's SPY Against SPY
Two CIA agents, Tuck and Frank who are also best friends, have been benched because someone's after them. Tuck is divorced with a son whom he's not close to and Frank is a ladies man. Tuck decides to try and find someone so he places his profile on a dating website. Lauren, a woman also looking for a guy sees tuck's profile and goes with him. She later bumps into Frank and he hits on her and she goes out with him. she's intrigued by both of them. When they learn that they're dating the same girl, they agree to let her choose. But both can't help but use their skills to keep tabs on her and each other. And also sabotage each others dates with her.
There's a guy with a pistol and another guy with a pistol and a girl who fucks the one guy but also fucks the other guy and they all fuck and shoot and kiss and fuck and fight.
I have a fundamental issue with McG’s latest film, and not just because it is bad. Two best friends, on discovering that they have been dating the same woman, embark on an escalating battle with each other rather than following the simple maxim, bros before hos (it’s not even if they know if she gives mindblowing blow jobs at this point). So who exactly are we supposed to root for here? The two love blind schmucks or the unbelievably bland love interest who neither have any chemistry with. In fact there is more sexual tension between the BFF’s than with their object of desire. Witherspoon and Pine even meet over trying to rent the same film (the horrible remake of…
Now what's the word I'm looking for?
Piss poor in just about every aspect of film making? Njet.
Waste of talent? Non.
A veneered turd? Nee.
All of the above?
Yeah. That's it.
I think I should just recap the movie for everyone:
There are pretty people that do pretty people things. One pretty person likes another pretty person and that pretty person is liked by another pretty person. They decide to do some pretty person shenanigans in order to win the heart of that pretty person so they can have pretty people sex.
Are you unsure of who was who and who wanted to have sex with each other based on that review? So was I, because I thought the film was going to end with Kirk and Bane fucking each other.
This Means Clichés
This Means Shit
This Means Awful
This Means Tom Hardy Can't Save It
This Means McG Sucks
This Means Implausible
This Means It Fails at Action
This Means It Fails at Comedy
This Means My Wife Picked It
This Means Fuck Her
Fuck it you get the point, the one star Is for Tom Hardy. This Means He Shouldn't Take Roles Like This.
None of them should ever work with McG again. I also don't understand how it could have taken four people to write this script, because other then the directing the script is the biggest problem this film has working against it. I don't want to waste anymore time writing about this film.
Nothing happening on screen is even remotely amusing in "This Means War", as it features a juvenile sense of humor and unlikeable characters. McG is the worst.
Better than expected
Last night I watched This Means War and I thought it was amazing! Funny story, nice actors, great chemistry and hilarious scenes! Sometimes a bit predictable but that didn’t make it less funny. So what is this film about?
Two guys, who are friends and colleagues getting sort of free time from work when a mission goes bad. Tuck, Tom Hardy, is a divorced man with a child and the more serious one when it comes to woman. FDR or Franklin (Chris Pine) is more of a player with a lot of talks. The third person in this story is Lauren, Reese Witherspoon. When her friend Trish (Chelsea Handler) sings her up on a dating profile she meets Tuck and…
I laughed and liked it so much I'm not even sorry
Simple, light, action and some humor. Nice weekend movie. In spite of it all you wonder how it ends. This is one of those stories that is better in the middle than in the end. The outcomes does not matter as it describes some buddies, both CIA, heavily involved in work together, now competing for a woman. What does it do with your friendship. Fortunately, that part is very thin. Most emphasis is on the competition. Bits of action there. Some True Lies elements, such as other people not suspecting these are not regular guys, but CIA agents. Still... it's nice light entertainment, perhaps an underestimated category of film making. As the heavy stuff: that is realitively easy to make. Light harted stuff without too much morality please: that is where the challenges are.
This movie confused me right from the beginning. First, the two friends work for the CIA, but one is British. Also the British guys says "mate" all the time, isn't that Australian? Blockbuster plays a prominent role, who goes to Blockbuster in 2012 when this movie was made? I could go into more confusing aspects, but I don't want to ruin the movie for you. The CGI was awful and distracting. The movie wasn't funny and you didn't care about the characters or the outcome of the movie. Anyway, I think you got my point.
Hay química entre sus protagonistas, pero posee un guion tan inverosímil, una blanda y artificial dirección y un villano tan pobremente trabajado que sorprende. Pésima película.
Another underrated action comedy. It's a tough genre with many bad films, but this is a good one. Great cast, long and good script and many funny scenes like the paintball-scene which is one of the greatest scenes of 2012. Technically awesome, the cinematography is outstanding and never got the attention it deserves. A stronger bad guy would be better for the overall film, more interesting sidekicks also. Somtimes the editing is a bit bumpy.
