The Debut of The Real Female
Veteran director Steven Soderbergh may have given some people pause when they heard that he was making an action spy-thriller that seemed aimed to appease the mainstream viewer’s appetite for explosions, hard-hitting action and dumbed-down plotting. Well, it seems like the veteran filmmaker knew what he was doing when he teamed up with screen writer Lem Dobbs for their second collaboration after the hidden success of “The Limey”. “Haywire” stars MMA star Gina Carrano …

*** out of ****    A young woman enters a diner. She is Mallory Kane (Gina Carano). She is followed soon thereafter by a man named Aaron (Channing Tatum). They talk for a little bit, although he seems upset, and just when the drinks that they ordered are about to be delivered to their table, Aaron strikes Mallory; and the two are involved in hand-to-hand combat. Mallory breaks Aaron's wrist but is wounded in her arm. A kind young man (Michael Angarano) gives Mallory the chance …

Star Rating:         Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire takes an interesting and seldom used approach to the spy action thriller: It strips away all visual and thematic pretensions and simply plunges headfirst into pure adrenaline-pumping espionage. I’m hard pressed to say that the story is simple, and yet it’s clear to me that everything unnecessary has been left out, leaving only that which must be there for the sake of advancement. Although the fight sequences …

Still a Knockout
HAYWIRE Written by Lem Dobbs Directed by Steven Soderbergh Starring Gina Carano, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum   Aaron: Is this your idea of relaxing? Wine and gun maintenance?   To a large extent, both on the surface and at its root, Steven Soderbergh’s latest caper, HAYWIRE, is nothing more than a filmic excuse to watch former “American Gladiator”, Gina Carano, beat the living crap out of a bunch of big, strapping men. On many levels, …

'Haywire' 'Two Jews On Film' Begin The Year Disagreeing Over Soderbergh's Spy Thriller (Video)
      I knew I was going to love 'Haywire' directed by Steven Soderbergh from the first scene.       A girl walks into a coffee shop in the middle of nowhere.   She sits down...blows on her hands to warm them.  The waitress takes her order.       A few seconds later, a man comes in, sits down opposite her.  They briefly chat...and then SUDDENLY...      It's wham...bam...pow-kick-punch....Trans …

Steven Sogerbergh has been talking about retiring from the film industry for some time now, that being said this is his 25th film in a little over 20 years. He has never done a movie involving so much fighting as he is usually known for his dark shots and dialogue heavy stories. He is still able to put his own spin on the genre and makes Haywire an enjoyable movie even if it leaves no long lasting impression.      Newcomer Gina Carano stars as a black ops agent seeking …
