Jason reviews This Means War

Harmless fluff about two spies who chase the affection of the same woman. Think Mad's Spy Vs. Spy only less mean spirited. You know what? It's not bad at all; as for as one-off time wasters go. And it's something the wife can enjoy as well. Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon are all likable, funny actors, and they do a good job here. In fact, with another cast, this could have been really, really awful. Kudos to director McG for knowing how to shoot an action scene. Too bad there weren't more of them. This is like True Lies lite, and it's OK on that level. Not our usual poison in The Basement, but a decent lark all the same. A Bad for this one. FYI: the paintball scene is just awesome!
