Co-written by Timothy Dowling (Just Go With It) and Simon Kinberg (Mr. and Mrs. Smith), Sherlock Holmes), and directed by McG (Charlie's Angels, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle), this film has all of the high production values and frenetically-paced, choreographed violence you'd expect, but absolutely no heart or emotional integrity. There's no chemistry between Reese Witherspoon and either Chris Pine or Tom Hardy, and the acting talents of these three are totally wasted. If the goal was to appeal to young teen-aged boys then the film is a success. More discriminating viewers should definitely pass. If you are looking for action, comedy and romance, I can recommend Mr. and Mrs. Smith as well as Knight and Day but not This Means War.
