A freelance black ops special agent is betrayed during a mission in Dublin. Now she has to elude international pursuit, make sure her family is safe and exact revenge on the people responsible. I can't believe this women has taken out Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas.

I wanted to see this film because I was intrigued by how much audiences panned it (40% user rating on RT). After finally seeing it, I'm very shocked by its negative reception. I personally think there's a lot of fun to be had with this film, and Soderbergh's touch is evident throughout. The plot is a bit heavy at times, but the action, direction, cast, and acting are all solid. Gina Carano's lack of acting experience is apparent in many scenes, but she carries the film extremely well nonetheless. A solid, entertaining, thriller.

1.5/4 

Betrayed in a mission, a woman black ops special agent Mallory Kane (Gina Carano), left with no choice but to protect her family and to make revenge on people she used to work with. *** With a powerhouse cast composing of Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum and Michael Fassbender, this movie seemed to disappoint on every aspect. A number of good actors wasted by failed characterizations. The story was a weak material. And even the editing was not good at all.

"Haywire" by Yojimbo

When a freelance black ops agent is betrayed by her employer she must evade capture by both the police and her erstwhile colleagues whilst tracking down the traitor to exact revenge. The plot to Haywire will never win any awards for originality but Steven Soderbergh's foray into Bourne territory is a nicely taut, no frills exercise in cold war style action that is a million miles from the glitz and bonhomie of the Ocean's franchise. He has clearly been watching the likes of From Russia With Love and Get Carter as the film has a very old school feel, with some bone crunching and brutal fight scenes. The striking but not implausibly beautiful Gina Carano is completely believable in her part as a tough as nails, no-nonsense she-Bond who is a coldly professional hard case who also happens to ...

Not Sure Why A Lot of People Liked This Mess

Haywire is an interesting film - a sparse action thriller that plays with almost a documentary-feel to it. Sadly, that documentary-like quality doesn't necessarily translate to excitement or interest, as we are given little to no backstory for all the characters and, thus, are given not much to hold onto emotionally in the convoluted plot. The film is packed with A-list actors, but none of them are used to memorable effect and the heroes and villains play different shades of the same gray. The fight scenes are intense and clearly the film's highlight, though non-actor Gina Carano doesn't really dazzle in any of her dialogue scenes. Soderbergh tries to throw in a creative rack focus or framed shot here and there, but these visual touches don't have any motivation rooted in story and se...

Review - Haywire

I had seen trailers, posters, and knew the plot of Haywire before I saw it recently. It looked like it was going to be another version of Salt. I thought Salt was an okay movie, but it didnít measure up to the standard set by the Bourne franchise. The Bourne trilogy has definitely raised the bar for films in this genre. The modern version of the spy action thriller can never be viewed the same. With my anticipation (and expectations) high for The Bourne Legacy, I really wasnít in the mood to see anything that might fall flat in comparison. Two things drew me into watching Haywire - the cast and the director. With the mix of actors in the cast, I felt certain that, at the least, the performances would be interesting and worth the watch. And with Steven Soderbergh directing, I wondered wha...

This is the first film of 2012 that I am more than looking forward to seeing.  All the elements at play here just seem right: from director, to cast, to pretty much everything else.  Plus, I favor these types of action movies.  I'll post my review sometime this weekend, after I see it.

I'm actually quite looking forward to Contagion too. Another film with a great ensemble cast. Plus, rumor has is Soderbergh is doing second unit directing for The Hunger Games as well. I guess I prefer end-of-world / dystopian movies over pure action, but I will agree Haywire has a great cast as well.

It seems that Soderbergh knows no bounds when it comes to preferred genre. He's amassed quite the ensemble for this one. Here's to hoping the leading lady can act as well as she can kickbox :)
