We should have known better than to get excited for McG’s This Means War, despite an ensemble led by Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and the phenomenal Tom Hardy. McG (Charlies Angels, Terminator: Salvation) and the cast probably had a great time shooting but after watching the trailer, we’re left wondering why these actors signed on (after a dramatic casting saga).
Surely this can’t be as bad as Witherspoon’s How Do You Know — possibly the worst movie ever made with two Oscar-winners (Witherspoon and Nicholson). Both Hardy (Bronson, Warrior, The Dark Knight) and Pine (Star Trek) should have huge careers ahead of them. Why choose this? It’s either the money or we’re missing something.
