'Puncture' Trailer Doesn't Play Like its Synopsis Reads

The synopsis is a real snoozer:

“Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is the straight-laced and responsible yin to Mike’s yang. Their mom-and-pop personal injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their business to the breaking point.”

Sounds like a movie of the week. Seems boring even for a courtroom procedural. You might be able to weave that storyline into a good novel, but a movie? Straight to video, rental for a rainy day, at best.

But, the trailer... This makes you want to run out and see the flick:
