I stuck through all of Haywire, and though I'll give her credit for looking totally convincing in the fight scenes, I found Carano's performance more grating as it went along. I think 90% of her lines must've been in monotone. Maybe that's how Soderbergh wanted her to say her lines, but I need to see her exhibit more range before I can endorse her for WW.

Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters. - Greg Rucka
