Chasing Gina

Haywire is directed by Steven Soderbergh and features an all star cast that includes Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum and Michael Fassbender.

However the main star is MMA fighter Gina Carano as Mallory Kane who works in black ops and is hired to pose as he wife of a British agent and ends up being a target for elimination herself. Carano has to unravel who is trying to set her up.

The film is shot with little dialogue and a moody setting, many of the known cast has small roles and its a 'unHollywood thriller' although Carano does get to kick ass as well as getting chased mainly in the streets or rooftops of Dublin.

Fassbender and Carano's scenes standout especially their combat sequences. Its an unusual film given the director is an Oscar winner 'A' lister director who has gone back to his roots and decided to make an independent action film. By and large he succeeds and Carano looks like someone, given the right material who could breakout as an action star.

Girl power

According to what I read (or should I say waded through), Steven Soderbergh saw Gina Carano fight (she is an expert in martial arts) and wanted to build a film around her.

Haywire isn't your typical Soderbergh film. The plot is barely there -- a black ops agent is betrayed and seeks revenge on her betrayers. Big whoop. The star of the show is Gina Carano kickboxing, jumping, throttling people, you name it. That is one amazing athlete there. And the fact that she was up against all men was impressive. And she has a great figure.

The film also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, and Ewan McGregor, so the inexperienced Carano was surrounded by good people who didn't have much to do.

This isn't an action film up to the standards of a Bourne film, due to Soderbergh not doing much in the way of directing. It just doesn't pop. The ending is just blah.

Carano is the only reason to see it, if you want to see a top-notch female kickboxer in action.

Realistic fighting by a real fighter

This is a vehicle for former MMA star Gina Carano, ably supported by Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender and Antonio Banderas. Despite probable debut nerves, Gina handles herself quite well in such celebrated company. Like Tinker, Tailor... the film is not about acting charisma but focused on the story and all the characters just serve to push it along. The plot is a fairly standard blackops agent set up and the scene is nicely set for the sequel it probably deserves. Does Kenneth actually die? Before killing him, does Mallory extract shocking new information from Rodrigo (or does his new wife even manage to save him)? Does she go after Studer next and bring down his crime syndicate? And is Coblenz as innocent as he makes out, or just using her to clean up a trail that actually leads back to him? These are all loose ends that could be exploited before one even bothers to think up a new adventure, whether working for the government or independently. Good luck with that Gina :o)
