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!

Action /fight scenes were good, but the acting poor.

If I didn't know better, I'd suspect this was a vanity project (check out her imdb bio/profile. Can you say overdone? Worshipful? Idolizing?)wherein a boyfriend of Gina Carano's who has a ton of money to blow, decided to star her in a movie and to pump up it's viewership and respectability by surrounding her with name stars who came in for a hefty paycheck for two days of work just so the producer could put their name and face on the box. As a graduate of the Big Lumber school of acting, she comes across unprepared and uninteresting to helm the lead of a film. I suspect with time, she could become a capable, if not star worthy, actress with easily more range than the ever one note Michelle Rodgriguez. I suspect Steven Soderbergh directed this on Skype as he brings not an ounce of tension or excitement to this tepid, overdone plot of an agent double crossed by her superiors.

Gina Carano is the kickass girl in the movie.Other than that,the movie has nothing special in it.If you like Gina Carano and you love action movies,you might enjoy it more.For me,I had to stop the movie at the end of the first 20 minutes and asked myself "what the hell did I just watched?" I have seen action movies with better storylines and I really didn't want to waste my brain power on a movie like this.

A series of hand-to-hand fights barely strung together on a very thin thread of 'plot'. There is better writing and acting in an episode of the "Nikita" television series ! Michael Douglas put his name on the cover and collected a paycheck. Disappointing !! The fight choreography was exciting and inovative, and Gena was good at that,.. but she deserved a real vehicle, and did not get one.

Yes, Gina's fight scenes were far superior to anything you ever see with Steven Seagal (Gosh, but that guy sucks!), but the story and script were horrific.

“Haywire” certainly highlights Gina Carano’s martial arts skills. The film’s poor script, however, does not allow us to make a clear assessment of her acting abilities. This is a shame since many athletes make movies their second career.

After black ops assignments in Spain and Ireland Mallory's life is turned upside down. Mallory becomes a fugitive and is being hunted down by the authorities as well as hired assassins. Throughout the movie Mallory fights for her life while trying to find out who is responsible for her situation. An action packed drama with a complex storyline.

At the end of the film, I had to ask myself: What the heck was the point? Gina sounded so metallic with her lines. Urgh. Fight scenes were ok, but overall, the film was forgettable. One watch and your done.
