Guys, I saw this last night. Good fun. Carano wasn't anywhere as bad as I thoought she'd be as an actor. She's got the same thing Arnold has. And, her MMA skills really sell the fight scenes. When she kics someone, you feel it.

Her voice is a little "odd." I'll just say this; I used to date a female body builder. She was ranked #8 in the country. She used steroids and it gave her a certain "gravel" in her voice. I worik with voices. Particularly women's voices. It's not a natural sound.Take from that what you will.

Soderbergh is no action director and it shows. But, that's not really a bad thing. You get to actually see the fight scenes. No crappy shaky cam. And things kind of just happen in a subtle way that adds authenticity to action.

On a final note; if ever have to be chocked to death, please let it be by Gina Carano's thighs. 'Nuff said.

Yeah I was hoping this would turn out well, too, especially once I saw the first tv spots and realized the great cast (with a little Tatum mixed in, unfortunately).  I wouldn't imagine an actor of Ewen McGregor's caliber taking a role in a movie simply for a paycheck.

I have admired Carano for years.  I had seen early glimpses of Haywire back in winter of 2010 when they aired it on HDNET and looked promising back then.  Good to know its gotten positive feedback and I plan on seeing it. 

And I do hope the rumors of Carano being a candidate of Wonder Woman are true because she has the right physique....(KEY WORD: PHYSIQUE), not some over-glorified runway model that freaks at the sight of a McDonald's Happy Meal or a crummy ass toothpick actress that looked shittier than the crack of an elephant's ass in that ridiculous home ec made costume of that "thank god it never happened" David E. Kelly's interpretation of the Amazon Princess.

One last note regarding Chris Cyborg:  I said it when it happened on tv before she beat Carano (insert asterik), TEST THAT WOMAN FOR STEROIDS!!!  She's about as ripped as Brock Lesnar and now she got caught early last week.  That may be the final nail in the coffin of women's MMA.

This may sound picky, but I swear the soundtrack to this movie killed any momentum it might have had.

It just did not fit what was going on...1970's jazz?  I fell asleep 3 times...boring.

Well i was trying to see this over the weekend but some snow prevented that- I had 3 movies on my list Red Tails 1, Underworld 2 and this 3. Looks like a lot of other people picked those 2 movies over this one too. This had better reviews than Red Tails but I went the WW2 and Vampire route this weekend.
