YOW. Oh, Steven Soderbergh, what have you done? I always did think the man who gave us the “Ocean’s 11″ movies had some hardcore fighting film in him. Now as it turns out, he’s done just that with “Haywire”, casting MMA fighter Gina Carano in the lead to boot. She’s a noob, but nobody else in the cast is. Soderbergh has surrounded Carano with an insane amount of talent here, from Ewan McGregor to Bill Paxton to Michael Fassbender. (Hey, that’s Michael Fassbender!) Check out the latest trailer for the movie. It’s punching, kicking, and Gina Carano ass-whuppin’ awesome.
Beautiful freelance covert operative Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) is hired out by her handler to various global entities to perform jobs which governments can’t authorize and heads of state would rather not know about. After a mission to rescue a hostage in Barcelona, Mallory is quickly dispatched on another mission to Dublin. When the operation goes awry and Mallory finds she has been double crossed, she needs to use all of her skills, tricks and abilities to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the United States, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her.
Starring Gina Carano, Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton and directed by Steven Soderbergh.
