Gina Carano makes her Hollywood starring debut as a kick-butt, no-nonsense special-ops contractor caught in a web of betrayal in Haywire.
Carano, who has a mixed-martial-arts background, plays Mallory Kane, a killing machine on the run trying to piece together a puzzle. Michael Douglas plays the intelligence chief. Ewan McGregor plays her boss and her ex. Channing Tatum plays a fellow operator. Antonio Banderas plays Puss in Boots—oops, her Spanish connection. Michael Fassbender rounds out the cast as a British MI-6 agent posing as Mallory's lover.
The film is all about the globetrotting visuals with flashbacks and extended fight scenes, and it's hard at times to get a hold of the plot. Director Steven Soderbergh, however, puts together a great musical score while using of a variety of cinematic styles creating, remarkably, an entertaining film.
Haywire is a whole bunch of fun. I loved watching Carano beat up all those guys. She is a bit choppy with her lines, but she is solid with the action sequences. You will see a lot more of Carano.
Dark laughs and a short run time of 93 minutes have me giving Haywire four out of five on the flick-o-meter.
Carano is Italian American, so why not head to in north Paulding for some Italian food before seeing her on the big screen?
