Review: This Means War

This Means War, previously claimed that this was one for the girls and the guys. Was I right? Find out here.Two of the world’s top secret agents are best friends who never let anything come between them — until they inadvertently fall for the same woman.  It’s all-out war, as the two spies battle each other with high-tech surveillance, advanced tactics, and an arsenal capable of bringing down a small country.

So far so good. The cast includes the delicious Tom Hardy, the also delicious Chris Pine, and the oh so delicious Reese With-her-spoon (because you could just eat her up!) Reese plays an adorable work obsessed woman who decides to get in the dating game, not knowing that two great guys are going to fall onto her lap and then she has to figure out which one she wants to be with. Bless her, shes’s good – she has a conscious and can’t date two guys at once. Any other woman in their right mind would not mind on this occasion considering the participants.

In a series of events that the boys become in heated competition not just to woo the girl, but to sabotage each others chances alongside foiling a villain – its pretty action packed. With car chases, explosions, helicopters, attractive men in suits, smoking hot women in next to nothing and some lovely moments that make us go “awww” you can’t really go wrong.

One character to watch out for is Reese’s best friend in the film played by Chelsea Handler, she comes out with some of the funniest lines in the film. And the routine of her making love to her husband whilst eating cheetos is just too cringe worthy that its funny.

This Means War is definitely one to watch, whether you think you’ll like it or not – I can guarantee you will. And if not, you’ll be in the good books with your girlfriend/wife/mistress.
