Critic Reviews

  • Tom Huddleston, Time Out
    Yet another case of Hollywood execs trying way too hard to give the audience what they think it wants.
  • Anthony Lane, New Yorker
    The director is McG, who allows no motion to pass without a musical energy boost.
  • Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    "This Means War" is the worst McG film yet. And good Lord, that is saying something.
  • Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
    The best you can say about This Means War is that it would make a good date movie for couples in the witness protection program.
  • Laremy Legel,
    Slides by on the strength of Tom Hardy.
  • Richard Roeper, Richard
    And we have our first lock for the Worst of the Year list.
  • Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
    Not even cutie-pie Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon can hold our attention for long in this ridiculous, bombastic romance.
  • Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
    It's a date movie for suckers.
  • Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
    You can imagine how the ball got rolling on "This Means War.'' You can also imagine how the folks who rolled the ball started to lose their minds.
  • Leah Rozen, TheWrap
    In the dictionary, "frothy" is defined as being "light and entertaining but of little substance." This Means War is a totally frothy film. And that's a good thing, at least here. (Sometimes substance is overrated.)
