The finest moment in Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire isn’t one of its pyrotechnic fight scenes; it’s a facial expression. Shock hopscotches into fear before easing into awe as John Kane (Bill Paxton), watches his daughter, Mallory, a marine turned black ops contractor, dispatch an intruder who has her cornered in a darkened room.
