      Unexpected Surprise...

      This Means War is fluff cinema at it's finest. It doesn't pretend to be "Gone With The Wind" and revels in it's premise. The acting chemistry between Pine and Hardy carries the movie. They seem to enjoy working together and, when they get competitive, the screen bubbles with electricity. However, Reese Witherspoon continues to disappoint. I don't know if it's the roles, the direction, or the lack of likeability, but she's off her game. She comes across as wooden and forced. The bright side though is Chelsea Handler's screen time with Witherspoon. Handler has some pretty serious comedic chops and I would have loved to seen her get more screen time. Overall, this movie is a great action/comedy romp. The action scenes are fast, fluid, and exciting. The pace is brisk and all the supporting players bring something to the table. This is a definite rental, if not buy, for the action/comedy lover.

      Hardy and Pine Do Wonders...

      I'm certainly not one to look forward to a Rom Com, but this is more of an Action (Bad Boys style) Rom Com. Witherspoon isn't bad by any means, but any good looking/quirky actress could have played her part (for me, at least). Hardy and Pine are just too funny...it seems genuine as if how two buddies would be to each other, over a girl. Throw in all the 'secret squirrel' action, and you have a winner. I'd definitely recommend this for some good laughs and action, mixed with a decent amount of 'girly' stuff!

      Blu-ray is nice, film is bland

      Based on the product alone, you are getting a quality Blu-ray that looks great. The special features are lacking and it could have benefited from more material here. The film, on the other hand, is fairly bland and very comical and ludicrous. Neither Hardy, Witherspoon, or Pine have an outstanding performance. They appear to have no chemistry despite the film being about a love triangle between two best friends. It was a nice idea, but it is not really pulled off here.

      This Means War is a fun movie that both men and women can enjoy. There's plenty of spy stuff, cars, and explosions to keep guys entertained and the "fighting over the girl" plot is one that most girls would enjoy as well. I went in with low expectations and this movie really surprised me. Lots of great laughs and action scenes. Can't go wrong with Reese Witherspoon either!

      Popcorn Action Comedy

      This isn't the best movie - it isn't even the best action comedy. But it's a good one, with Chris Pine and Tom Hardy elevating the material with charming performances. Reese Witherspoon is basically a MacGuffin - an inconsequential object that serves to move the plot. The real romance in this movie is between Pine and Hardy, and it's worth the watch.

      we all have that friend that we love to compete against. This movie brings it to the next level when you have those kinds of resources. I love the things that they do to impress this woman. And the paintball scene its funny as can be. Definitely a movie you should watch with a buddy that you compete with.

      This movie kind of had a Mr and Mrs Smith feel but was not as good. There are some cool action sceens and slick tech stuff plus the love interest (Witherspoon) is beautiful but the movie is bit slow and drags in parts. One tall the movie is entertaining, but glad I got it on sale.
