Preview: Haywire (2012)


A CIA-trained assassin finds herself on the opposite end of the gun as the CIA attempts to kill her for reasons she's still trying to unravel.

  • Poster: B-


It's stylish in an action film kind of way, but fairly bland when compared to a lot of independent film posters. It's hard to decide which approach is more interesting.

  • Trailer: B+; B+


The first trialer is bit more traditional in structure, moving us from point A of the plot to point B with some quickly edited segments in between. It's an effective approach for some, but may be a little too generic for others.

The beginning of the second trailer is sublime. Simple, evocative and only sparsely edited, then it proceeds into a similar style as the first trailer which prevents it from being completely top notch.
