Haywire

Director Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Eleven, Traffic) tries to create a vehicle for MMA fighter Gina Carano. Thanks to the economical script by Lem Dobbs (who collaborated with Soderbergh on The Limey), Haywire is a lean, mean fighting machine. With the minimal emoting she's asked to do, it's hard to tell just how skillful an actor Carano really is. But she's a hell of a fighter, and her frosty charisma works just fine here. The story is minimal--Carano's a freelance soldier-for-hire who gets double-crossed by her greedy boss (Ewan McGregor) and goes gunning for revenge. The action is blunt and brutal--no special effects or wirework. For Soderbergh, this is just a lark. For audiences, it's sleek, stripped-to-the-bone action. 93 minutes R.
