Haywire

24 Aug

haywireA black ops super soldier seeks payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission. (IMDb)

So this was a decent enough thriller. The plot jumps were confusing though. It took a lot to keep up with the plot. It was all tied together nicely in the end though. Steven Soderbergh does have nice direction in this. There’s this one section where she’s walking down the street and it’s very tension filled and you’re just waiting for something to happen. Also the fight choreography and execution is impressive all around. I mean, she’s a former MMA fighter, so that’s not surprising. Gina Carano was decent. Better than I thought she would be, especially in the fighting aspect, and her acting wasn’t terrible, but it also could have been better. But a really solid beginning for her. The rest of the impressive ensemble cast that includes Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, and more helped fill in the gaps for this decent action/spy movie.

6/10
