Although ‘This Means War’ is far from a classic comedy and has a noticeable lack of story and creativity. The film is wonderfully enjoyable to watch thanks in no small part to its brilliantly cast leading actors. The flaws in the script are noticeable and the lack of a truly engaging story does leave one with a sense of a missed potential. Despite all this any fans of Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Renée Zellweger, who are all perfectly cast, should make this a film to see.
I hadn't really heard of this movie when it came out, but decided to give it a try when I came across the Blu-ray on sale. What a surprise! This was actually a decently funny movie. Of course, it was filled with mildly slapstick gags and was fairly predictable. But what movie isn't today.
I really enjoyed the chemistry between the three lead characters, and I thought they did a good job keeping the pace of the movie going.
