Film Review – Haywire

Kick-ass fight scene! Blah blah blah…

Kick-ass chase scene! Blah blah blah…

Kick-ass car chase scene! Blah blah blah… Blah blah blah… Blah blah blah…

Not-quite-so-exciting fight scene. Blah blah blah… Blah blah blah…

(*checks watch*) Blah blah blah…

Humongously disappointing climactic fight scene… Blah… Set up for second climactic fight scene…

The end.

Oh.

If you’re going to cram so much exposition and dialogue into an action film, then make it either

a) important

b) interesting

c) emotionally involving

d) revelation(s) of unseen twists

e) at the very least, written well enough to be worth listening to.

f) ANY of the above.

This film opts for none of the above, and, as a result, actually hurts a pretty decent action film by weighing it down with tedium. It’ll probably work better on DVD, what with the “chapter skip” option.
