Think of Mallory Kane (played by MMA Fighter, Gina Carano) as Jason Bourne with a functioning memory and some sweet heels. Carano comes alive in this action-thriller by acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh. As hired heavy for a private black bag ops firm working for the United States Government, Kane is betrayed by the very people she works for after she performs an extraction job to save a Chinese journalist. Then things go, as they say, haywire. Blindsided, attacked, chased and essentially targeted for the meat locker, Kane unleashes mixed martial arts Hades on everyone who crosses her and proves that the absence of a Y-chromosome leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to lethal force. With great plot twists and the kind of action sequences that make Steve Seagal pine for his younger, thinner days, Haywire is festooned with an all-star cast including Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Ewan MacGregor, Michael Fassbender, Bill Paxton and Channing Tatum (ahem).
