This Means War

Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are the spies who loved Reese

Spy buddies Tom Hardy and Chris Pine become swaggering love rivals, clashing verbally and physically over the affections of executive Reese Witherspoon.

Loosely improvised and mildly homoerotic, it’s Hardy and Pine’s mano-a-mano that throws a much-needed lifeline to the series of duff Bondian skits threaded throughout McG’s action romcom (a return to fluffier terrain after the dour Terminator: Salvation).

Shame the final act lets the daft pyrotechnics take over, but the frisky mid-section is unexpectedly fun while it lasts.
