This Means War: Spy VS Spy as Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine & Tom Hardy star in a Romcom action film...

I’m not going to waste any time pretending I’m a fan of McG as a director. None. Not one second. Terminator Salvation was a very poor film; sure it was poorly written, but the directing highlighted the flaws instead of masking them. That it is possibly his best film (fans of Charlie’s Angels may disagree) is not a good sign. So when we’re dealing with aa film like  this  you’re probably going to need the likes of Edgar Wight (Sean of The Dead, Hot Fuzz & Scott Pilgrim) to make it work. McG is no Edgar Wright.

Still Reese Witherspoon is cool, Tom Hardy is the Don and Chris Pine has proven himself in any number of wildly contrasting roles (Princess Diaries 2, Smoking Aces, Star Trek) so the film may yet surprise us all. I certainly wish the leads all the success in the world, just please McG, do something better.

“The world's deadliest CIA operatives are inseparable partners and best friends until they fall for the same woman. Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis ever - each other.”
