McG United States, 2012

Howard Orr's rating of the film This Means War

Unregulated, wholesale eavesdropping on civilians by the US government gets a "humorous" makeover. The limp rom-com element vastly outweighs the gunfights and bad guys promised at the start, and their return near the end is lazily tacked-on. Tom Hardy is better than this, and should stick to "Tinker, Tailor" territory in future when it comes to spy flicks. Just total fucking garbage.
