Movie Reviews

  • ugly, nondescript hi-def palette, heavy on the piss yellows and shit browns, renders every locale flat and banal
    Review rate : D by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • to this referee, that's movie sensibility gone haywire
    Review rate : B- by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • the screenplay doesn’t bother detonating any surprises at all; narrative ingenuity is sooo 1940s
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]
  • so no, in truth, the story isn't much. Just betrayal and revenge, basically
    Review rate : C+ by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • refreshingly frank about what it is, a simple, workable framework for the melees and mayhem
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • puts the impact back into screen violence, brings it back to earth
    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]
  • nothing resembling plot, character development or a star-making career move of any kind is anywhere apparent
    1.5 of 4 by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
  • meticulously edited scuffles and chases, set pieces threaded around a plot that seems almost defiantly preposterous and uninteresting
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • it's artisan trash, delivering the action-thriller goods, but on its own intelligent terms
    by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • in that sense, Soderbergh hasn't made an action movie at all. He's made a documentary
    by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • has its share of plot holes
    Review rate : C by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • gives Haywire B-movie oomph without sacrificing his fluid elegance
    3.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • from start to finish, serious fun
    3 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • eccentric, and the on-screen violence is sharp and exciting - brutal without being either subhumanly sadistic or superhumanly ridiculous
    3 of 5 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • doesn't just start 2012 with a bang; it sets the bar very, very high for every action film that's going to follow in its footsteps this year
    Review rate : B by James Rocchi [MSN Movies ]
  • curiously, while the mayhem plays out in a manner worthy of its title, "Haywire" never seems less than fully in control of its own effects
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
  • besides a tight narrative, Haywire offers nail-biting fights and chases, clever twists
    by Doris Toumarkine [Film Journal International ]
