WEDNESDAY THIS MEANS WAR
8.30PM, FOXTEL ACTION/ ADVENTURE ★★
This inelegant welding of a chick-flick to a bro-mantic action thriller is as messy as expected though it’s not entirely unwatchable when it doesn’t try so hard. Tom Hardy and Chris Pine play secret-agent buddies who fall for the same girl (Reese Witherspoon). The brawny action stuff sans a ditzy Witherspoon is much more effective. Hardy shows enough to suggest there is a good comedy in him in future outings. Be forgiving and it will probably be enough.
