One of Soderbergh's poorer films

on 4/29/2012

Here is an R-rated Action/Thriller directed by Steven Soderbergh ("Ocean's" trilogy). My biggest problem was that there was very little action and it certainly wasn't a thriller. In fact, this was the most passion-less thriller I have endured recently. There was a lot of talk, but even the talk was emotionless and ineffective; the plot was never very clear. Read More

Editors Note
Note Mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano makes her feature-film debut as a lethal government contractor who's betrayed by her own agency in this action thriller from writer Lem Dobbs (THE LIMEY) and director Steven Soderbergh (TRAFFIC, CONTAGION). Mallory Kane (Carano) is the woman the U.S. government calls on to take care of their dirty work. She's fast, efficient, and -- perhaps most important of all -- clean. But when Mallory makes the mistake of saving a Chinese journalist from certain death, she becomes an enemy to the very same government she once served. Mallory isn't going down without a fight, though, and after a close brush with death, she realizes that the only way to save her own life is to reveal the government's deception. Now, as assassins close in from all sides in an ominous attempt to silence her forever, Mallory sets a trap and races to reveal a massive deception that threatens global stability. Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, and Bill Paxton co-star.
Reviews
Hollywood Reporter "Carano exudes the sort of self-confidence and physical wherewithal that leaves no doubt she can prevail in any situation." 11/07/2011
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's about slick, muscular tag-team action chops....Pared-back purity of purpose is HAYWIRE's point -- and it's played with tough panache." 02/01/2012
Box Office 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[Soderbergh's] dexterity in managing a chronologically tangled multi-city narrative makes for stylish fun." 01/13/2012
Wall Street Journal "[A]n elegant machine....Its lustrous surfaces offer great and guilt-free pleasure." 01/20/2012
USA Today 3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] vigorous spy thriller that consistently beckons the viewer to catch up with its narrative twists and turns." 01/20/2012
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "Soderbergh is a master craftsman whose work moves almost eagerly between genres....It's a pleasure to see an A-list director taking the care to make a first-rate genre thriller." 01/20/2012
New York Times "[T]he film, written by Lem Dobbs, proceeds through a series of expertly choreographed, meticulously edited scuffles and chases..." 01/20/2011
Los Angeles Times "[W]atching Carano kick, spin, flip, choke, crack and crush the fiercest of foes -- mostly men about twice her size -- is thoroughly entertaining, highly amusing and frankly somewhat awe-inspiring..." 01/20/2012
Movieline "[S]tylish, quietly exhilarating....That Carano does all her own stunts, of course, only adds to the allure." 01/19/2012
Rolling Stone 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Soderbergh gives HAYWIRE B-movie oomph without sacrificing his fluid elegance." 01/19/2012
Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "HAYWIRE possesses a lean, unfussy style, from the blown-out lighting to fight sequences that Soderbergh stages with a minimum of unnecessary flourish or fanfare." 01/20/2012
A.V. Club "Soderbergh drops all but the raw sound of pummeling from the fights, a masterstroke that Carano?s dexterity makes possible....She?s a new model of action star." -- Grade: A- 01/19/2012
Sight and Sound "Time and again, Soderbergh shows his mastery of action technique, filming and editing each set-to with electrifying composure, as the widescreen frame becomes a playground for limbs outstretched in combat." 02/01/2012
