This Means War
Two of the world’s deadliest CIA operatives are inseparable partners and best friends – until they discover that they’ve fallen in love with the same woman. Deciding to keep their friendship a secret from her, they pull out their full arsenal of fighting skills and high-tech gadgetry to defeat their greatest enemy – each other.
The entertainment in this film is there without question if you like plenty of action. The plot is interesting as two federal agents fall for the same girl and she in turn falls for them and has to decide which one she wants to be with on a permanent basis. However, the language is strong including one “F” bomb not to mention a bit of a strong sex scene and several innuendos and the violence is also enough as to warrant a three from us, which crosses Dove’s line of acceptability for family viewing.
To the film’s credit, Lauren (Reese Witherspoon) does manage to pick between FDR (Chris Pine) and Tuck (Tom Hardy) and the one not chosen even manages to find happiness as a past relationship is renewed. There is a lot of action and funny moments in the movie but we can’t recommend this one for the family so, unfortunately, no Dove Seal from us.
