Gina Carano kicks twenty kinds of ass in the trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Haywire!

07.22.2011

It's been a long wait, but we finally get to see MMA battle-girl Gina Carano in action for Steven Soderbergh's espionage thriller HAYWIRE.

And action is definitely what she's all about. Witness the string of strikes, submissions and shootings below. The movie also features a killer cast including Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Antonio Banderas.

Synopsis: "Mallory Kane is a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly the target of skilled assassins who know her every move, Mallory must find the truth in order to stay alive.

Using her black-ops military training, she devises an ingenious—and dangerous—trap. But when things go haywire, Mallory realizes she’ll be killed in the blink of an eye unless she finds a way to turn the tables on her ruthless adversary."

just crazy

there is a reason she only fights other women, its the whole reason there are male and femal groups. BC she would get creamed by any guy who has somewhat the same training she has. You didnt see Jason Bourne running away from a bunch of women, did you? No bc he would smother them, so now they went the complete other way, where despite her being outweighted by guys who have the same training as her she can still dominate them. Now if it were just guns that could be plausible, where this is just

Meh

This appears to be some sort of meta experiment of Soderbergh's in which he attaches an A-list cast of good actors to generic C-grade thriller genre material and expects people to receive it with a bloated sense of satisfaction and intelligence on the strength of his name, when in fact the material is no better than a Wesley Snipes flick.

I never like Soderbergh's indie stuff

But his experimental takes on generic material left a sour taste in my mouth, being The Limey. In this case, he's trying to experiment like Taken. Seagal/Van Damme plot with big Hollywood names in generic roles. This is going to be crap. (No judgement on Carano though, will wait till the film releases)

This cast looks amazing. Too bad the story has been done to death. Come on, how many super secret agents betrayed by the government movies are out there already?

Looks decent enough but can I just say...

It's good to see Bill Paxton again. That and I would love to get my ass handed to me by Gina.

Soderbergh has gone from indie darling to A-list Hollywood fun to bloated self-indulgence. I would rather see this any day of the week instead of CHE or SOLARIS. That being said, I'm really tired of this storyline and I don't know if Soderbergh can do much new with it.

Doesn't look like there is a single original idea in the entire movie, all of the A-listers look like they're phoning it in.

But something tells me Sodebergh got one thing right when he cast Gina Carano. A star is born fellas.

Looks like a DTV "winner"

Looks even more low budget than a low budget theater release. I think of Steven Seagal movies when I see this trailer. I have seen all but three of them lol

I'm sorry for my ignorant comment down there.. I just hate Channing Tatum with a passion.

Having watched the trailer though, it looks... interesting.

Great cast. Except for the MMA fighter turned actor who happens to be the main character...

Plus, when a movie is spoiled this badly in it's first trailer, odds are the studio knows it's got a stinker.

Cool Beans

Carano definitely has the physical presence to pull off action hero she looks like she can throw and take a punch much like real, life plus shes easy on the eyes alot of big names for her first starring gig could be something really fun.

That cast is insane. Why the hell did all those name actors sign up for something like this? Fassbender is great, but he looks to be in this about three seconds before he's killed, same goes for Tatum. This will be a mess, even if it was Jason Statham doing the asskicking I would be skeptical.

This is a trend that needs to stop

Sports stars are not actors, plain and simple. There have been some who have tried and made the conversion, but still 95% of the time it is awful, and no offense to Gina Carano, she is very charismatic. But charisma does not equal good acting and nothing in the trailer lead me to believe she has the chops for it.

I beg to differ - charisma does =good acting, in an action movie. See any Arnold movie if you are uncertain.

How original

Wow, a movie about an assassin / spy / goverment badass who is greenlit by the organization they work for and has to find out why/keep from getting killed/get revenge. Never seen that plot before.

The high pedigree of actors and director does not change how derivative this looks.

1-Paxton!!!!

2- Carano physical presence is amazing.

3- Banderas playing his real age is perfect.

4- Douglas looks well after the cancer.

5- Tatum is "whatever".

6- Fassbender has not become bigger than the game and is still cool enuff to take small roles in good films.

7- Mcgregor is carving a nice niche as a character actor opposed to the constant leading man.

Has potential to be pretty badass. I trust in Soderbergh. Plus having a trailer start out with Channing Tatum getting his ass kicked is maybe the best way one can sell a film. Ill see it just for that part.
