Directed by Oscarʼ winner* Steven Soderbergh (Contagion), this dynamic action-thriller introduces mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Gina Carano as Mallory Kane, a black-ops agent for a government security contractor. After freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, Mallory is double-crossed and left for dead - by someone in her own agency. Suddenly the target of assassins who know her every move, Mallory unleashes the fury of her fighting skills to uncover the truth and turn the tables on her ruthless adversary. Featuring Carano performing her own high-adrenaline stunts and an all-star cast including Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas and Michael Douglas, HAYWIRE is explosive movie entertainment.

Suspense and action spy-themed film with a talented female lead, Gina Carano, (like a female Jason Bourne) and two favorite actors: Michael Douglas and Ewan McGregor in lesser roles. Plenty of exciting fight and escape scenes. Really enjoy when a chick is so skilled, she kicks several guys' butts! Still can't wrap my head around the fact Bill Paxton just passed away suddenly. Paxton plays Mallory's dad who lives in a fabulous house somewhere out west which gives a brief view of some fantastic scenery.

Wonderful spy/conspiracy/espionage movie from an acclaimed director. The story's told in a nice way with flashbacks and fore shadowing. Real good fight scenes and very well choreographed. Gina Carano's performance despite her short presence in movie business is very good.

Great fight scenes and action, just lacking a lot of plot or character development.

Expected more from Soderbergh. Loved Gina. She's got that it factor.

Gina Carano is tough as nails, and a hottie, which is why she landed this part. It's probably wise that she's no longer active in MMA, as the inevitable cauliflower ears would likely limit her 'acting' opportunities...

While this movie isn't great and the acting is stiff, it's still kinda good. It's like Magic Mike but with MMA instead of dancin'.

As other commenters have noted, Gina Carano's martial arts and fighting skills are really highlighted by the film.

I'd recommend this film if you're already a fan of Soderbergh movies - even if it falls far short of Out of Sight.

Jus like you wouldn't send a machinest to put out a blazing fire, (you'd send a fireman!) Gina Carano should stick to martial arts and let actors stick to acting. I love Michael Fassbender, i love Ewan MacGregor, but their roles were so bland... i just couldn't do it!

I first saw this movie in the theatre and thought the protagonist too much to believe in. Now in the privacy of my home, watching in my underwear and pausing the film it is still too much to believe a female Chuck Norris takes the punches and kicks of bigger and stronger men only to overpower them all.
