Movie Review: This Means War

[The DAM Nation]
The film had a completely ludicrous plot, but it never took itself too seriously and that somehow made it far more refreshing compared to it's contemporaries. The acting performances were surprisingly relaxed and I thought the chemistry between Chris Pine and Tom Hardy was shockingly palpable. Reese Witherspoon, to me, seemed youthful and relevant, but it was the hysterical Chelsea Handler who completely stole the show. This Means War wasn't a monumental achievement in terms of movie making, but if you're looking for a film to keep you entertained - just don't expect anything clever or life changing - then this will do the job. 7.5/10

At first I watched this only to see Tom Hardy, but after the film finished, I was overwhelmed. Yeah, the premise was simple, two men fall in love with the same lady, but this time both of them are CIA agents. It was great to see how they can mix action, comedy, and romance in one movie. The chemistry between Hardy and Pine was a little bit odd, but whatever, I just love bromance. One thing that wasn't really good was the linear story-telling that was so easy to predict. 8/10
