This dynamic action-thriller directed by Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh boasts a talented cast including Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender and Gina Carano.

Mallory Kane (Carano) is a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly the target of skilled assassins who knew her every move, Mallory must find the truth in order to stay alive.

This is a very awesome and interesting thriller with a cool story with plenty of action and twists in the plot as it unfolds, there has been allot of female assassin type bond style thrillers lately all good and this is one of the best, fantastic cast the lead actress Gina carano is amazing (MMA fighter) and knows how to handle herself, the supporting cast all have great roles too and there is plenty of famous faces including Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton and more, the fight scenes are all very stylish and well put together and have no music score playing over them most of the time making them more real and gritty, a great movie and a must see. There are a couple of good features too one of them is all about Gina and her transition from pro fighting to her first movie.

 Great Action movie

Haywire is a great little action movie. Yes it has a Basic spy theme but the Action is outstanding. What make it outstanding is Gina Carano this woman does her own stunts and they are super cool.

Great movie.

 Horrendous acting!

When I heard about this movie I couldn't wait, a real life mma fighter as the lead and such a great supporting cast. However after 30 minutes in of watching an mma fighter on screen(not act) that was plenty, she cannot act and don't get me started on the fight scenes there ridiculously long and super violent (which I'm a fan of) but no one gets any injuries. At the start Channing Tattum throws fresh poured coffee in Gina Carano's face!! And she recovers and beats him in a fight...NO chance. Directors get real Carano should know better and should have advised the film makers and said this is ridiculous. Don't waste your money!

 SHE'S HARDER THAN SALT AND HANNA COMBINED!

Against hefty odds, Gina Carano's covert ops hard nut Mallory Kane ably obliterates all comers in Steven Soderbergh's revenge smack em up. Likewise, Haywire delivers an agile drop kick to doubts stacked against it.
It isn't Soderbergh at his most Oscar fit (Traffic), artful (Solaris) or ambitious (Che), but it's dispatched with the brusque style of his keenest genre cuts (The Limey, Ocean's Eleven), sending a smarting message to action flyweights everywhere as in you do it like this.
MMA fighter Carano hasn't acted before. Deferred release dates gave Soderbergh time to knock out Contagion since shooting it. Worrying signs, both. But no scars of post production panic are visible.
More crucially, Soderbergh bests earlier work with a none actor (The Girlfriend Experience) by cleaving closely to Carano's strengths, you'll believe she can do more damage than Salt and Hanna combined.
Limey writer Lem Dobbs globe trotting script is cavalier at best, crude at worst. But it doesn't faff about, opening and closing with the same word and mincing few others in between.
After Kane escapes a takedown bid by fellow operative Aaron (Channing Tatum), her backstory gets info dumped to hostage to tell plot to Scott (Michael Angarano). Any remaining tidbits are spilled at the end, where shady, well cast supporting roles (oily Michael Douglas, beardy Antonio Banderas) click into cursory focus.
But Haywire isn't about story or character. It's about slick, muscular tag team action chops. Kane was betrayed on a Barcelona extradition mission, but details are less important than Soderbergh's jazzy montage of breathtaking efficiency, cut to David Holmes's snazzy score it's clipped, clean, cool.
Point man Ken (Ewan McGregor) set Kane up, but conspiracies are backgrounded to flaunt Carano's physicality, multi smackdowns peaking as she decimates Michael Fassbender and high class hotel furnishings.
Sure, limitations linger. Carano has charisma but lacks range, rendering human intrigue involving her dad (Bill Paxton) and Tatum as dead weight. Arguably, Soderbergh's tendency to deliver two films in quick succession still maxes momentum at the cost of emotion.
But pared back purity of purpose is Haywire's point and it's played with tough panache. By the time Kane reaches Ken, you'll be too busy keeping up with the punches to fret over subtleties.
Although Haywire is a little rough around the edges and the plot thread bare it's still hard, fast and brutal Soderbergh's sucker punch return to action knows what it's about. Not subtle or substantial, but it gets to work with flab free focus.
