One would be rightfully skeptical of a “serious” thriller featuring an MMA star, but Haywire director Steven Soderbergh has managed to get winning performances out of porn stars and Topher Grace, so don’t be so quick to discount this film. In case you’re still sour on the idea, perhaps a supporting cast of Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, Michael Angarano, Matthieu Kassovitz and Antonio Banderas will put your mind at ease.
Haywire revolves around Carano’s character, a black ops soldier who finds out she’s been double-crossed, then goes around beating the hell out of people until something gives. It appears to be Ewan McGregor’s turn to pay the fiddler in these stills. Actually the script by Lem Dobbs is thought to be quite sharp, so just consider the ass-kickings a bonus.
Still, those legs could dropkick a small car. (Playlist)
