Where did it go wrong?

I saw trailers for this in the cinema and considered going to see it. Thankfully I didn't waste £8 paying for a ticket. The premise for this seemed great- OK reminiscent of True Lies- but there seemed to be potential for comedy and drama. Potential that is sadly never realised.

Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are both charming leads (Pine needs to stop doing that chewing with his mouth open thing. It makes him look retarded)Reese Witherspoon is possibly a little old for this kind of role- or at least this kind of role with Hardy and Pine- but she plays the role well enough.

The problem is that there is no plot to speak of, very little action and precious few laughs. The film is beautifully lit but the editing is horrible. It reminds the viewer of Quantum of Solace with its action sequences that could be memorable except the viewer can't see what is happening. It doesn't look a cheap film and the cast and premise could have made for something memorable but how could the end result be so unsatisfying. Vapid, bland, predictable and empty its like overdosing on cake icing because there is no cake underneath.

All the way through I couldn't help wonder how so much could have gone wrong until as the end credits rolled I saw it was directed by McG . Nothing more to be said.

In ALL that is holy....HOW DID THIS GET A 6.5?

I love action movies. I love romance films. What I don't love is Rom/com, barely action movies that make horrible sex jokes over and over again. I don't think it's a spoiler to say that there is a character whose only purpose is to make the same sex jokes over and over again. The action scenes are shot so close and edited so fast that there is no flow to them or any suspense whatsoever. Reese (Where the Heck Have I Been for Nearly a Decade) Witherspoon is set up as just a prize for Tom Hardy and Chris Foster to fight over, nothing else. More on the editing, it jumps around more than an epileptic deer. This movie tries to make it funny for two guys using billions of dollars worth of equipment to spy on each other and their love interest (creepy). McG, fitting name for this low calorie garbage. By the way, if your not convinced yet, McG directed Terminator Salvation, The Charlie's Angels remakes, and We Are Marshall. Don't take anyone to see this unless you want to insult their intelligence. I saw this idiotic movie, hated it, came home, and discovered a video review (too late) bashing it like I just have. If you still don't believe me after I have poured the hatred this movie hath made out of my heart, got to this address. This movie attempts to please the guys and the girls but fails horrendously in both (Film Brain, look him up on Google). O great, now the score's a 6.6. Screw this. ONLY PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE THAT BUGGING THEIR GIRLFRIEND'S IS OK WOULD LIKE THIS MOVIE.

By the way, I'm nominating this piece of cinematic defecation for worst picture of 2012. You listening Razzies.

Great movie--Why are critics bashing? An actually funny comedy.

Okay, critics, what the hell? I saw this movie at 7:30 at Movieland: A Bow Tie Cinema in Richmond, VA. Great theater, props! Anyways. The theater was packed. It was the biggest screen, too, but it was the only showing. If the audience reaction was anything to go on, this movie was hilarious. I certainly thought so. But not only that—it was a good movie!

Summary aside, this movie actually turned out to be one of my favorite romantic comedies and buddy comedies all in one. It was very fast-paced. It had the element of government agents, but also government agents that abuse their job's resources. There are 'bad guys' but it doesn't dominate the movie. The scenes with the bad guys start off with the preconception that they would be long and intense, but were actually only 60 seconds long and just a short break between the comedy and action. The funny parts—yes, they were funny. I was cracking up the entire time, and I don't do that often. Visually it looked amazing; watching on Blu-Ray will be spectacular. I, for one, will buy this on Blu-Ray. My roommate will thank me.

Yes, young people like myself will enjoy this movie, but it's also targeted for late twenties-late thirties people thinking about love and marriage. I saw a lot of older couples at the theaters and they were enjoying it just as much—they were laughing loudest, in fact! I'd give this movie a 9/10. Pure enjoyment.

So my issue: WTF Critics? You give this movie zero credit. Is it because of the actors? They're all great actors. Plot? Actually pretty good—somewhat predictable in hindsight but I'd still watch the movie again. Director? Supernatural and Nikita both have a fanbase, and aren't that bad with action or drama. If they actually watched the movies they wouldn't have rated it that low; I think they were going off plot summary. Back off, critics! When more people see this movie the ratings will go up! Rotten tomatoes said audience enjoyed it 71% so far, but opening day isn't even over yet. Critics give it 33%? Come on. (From tvcinema.tumblr.com (my blog) )
