Movie: Haywire (2011)

Haywire (2011)
Action, Thriller


You may not recognise the lead actress in this film but I'm sure you've seen her work. Gina Carano is a stunt woman, ex-Gladiator and Muay Thai champion. Girl has some serious moves! (If you want to check out some of her fights, just youtube her. I spent a whole lunch break watching her ring fights, she's amazing!)

Her first film and check out her co-stars! Channing Tatum (Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street), Michael Angarano (Almost Famous), Michael Douglas (Basic Instinct, Traffic), Antonio Banderas (Desperado, The Mask of Zorro), Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting, Star Wars) and Bill Paxton (Twister, Apollo 13). How's that huh? Awesome, that's how that is.

The very first scene Gina kicked Channing's ass! Love it! I've rewound and watched that scene so many times now, it's so good. All of the fight scenes are good, as they should be with Gina being a professional. The story line is your typical betrayed secret agent / contract killer / private contractor; nothing special but the fight scenes definitely make it worth while and it's filmed really well.

3 out of 5 ring girls...
