Film review: Haywire

By Pauline Anunciacion

Hollywood seems to have a crush on secret agents. From the James Bond films to The Bourne Identity to Mission Impossible, it is no surprise that Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire follows suit. Haywire is a cross between Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Phillip Noyce’s Salt, with one distinction — all three movies have a vengeful warrior-woman… Continue reading Film review: Haywire
