WED­NES­DAY THIS MEANS WAR

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

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.
