    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    A trio of appealing actors is trapped in an action-spiked romcom death-sentenced by a lack of humor, heart and a coherent reason for being. show more

    Silly action sequences grow tedious and rarely blend with the wannabe madcap comedy. show more

    "War" is depressingly mean-spirited. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    This perfectly dreadful romantic action comedy manages to embarrass its three eminently attractive leading players in every scene, making this an automatic candidate for whatever raspberries or golden turkeys or other dubious awards may be given in future for the films of 2012. show more

    With the material they're given, they mostly just seem foolish for showing up to the movie to begin with. Audiences would do well to avoid the same mistake. show more

    Bromance or romance, This Means War feels like something scrawled by enterprising teenagers who developed their concepts of love and espionage from films and TV shows they caught over a few weekends of basic cable surfing. show more

    This Means War is not funny enough to succeed as a comedy. It's not emotionally deft enough to succeed as a romance. And it's not exciting enough to succeed as an action film. It's a high-energy, fast-paced explosion of moments that can be edited together to make a compelling trailer. show more

    This Means War is a Valentine's date dud: Think wilted roses, squashed chocolates and flat champagne. show more
