13. Haywire (C+)

Haywire: A serviceable action movie with a bit of an arthouse sensibility, but as great as Gina Carona is in a fight scene, she's still working out how to act. The action set pieces are good, though, but too few and for the most part too brief. In terms of villains, Michael Fassbender is great as always (but barely in the movie), Ewan McGregor doesn't possess one ounce of menace, and Michael Douglas is pretty good as a bad (?) guy near the top. Overall, the movie is a bit over-invested in its (unnecessarily) convoluted plotting.

Theatres: 5 +1
Home Video: 7 +1
Computer: 1
