Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of "Haywire," the new action flick from Steven Soderbergh starring MMA champion Gina Carano. The plot focuses on Carano's black ops agent Mallory Kane, who finds herself the fall guy (or gal) in a setup when she tries to leave her current employer. It's a bit convoluted honestly, considering we're all just there to watch Carano kick some ass. And does she ever--it's a thrill ride from start to finish, and I always appreciate it when a movie shows me something new. In this case, it's Carano using her thighs as a weapon, climbing up walls, and basically blowing our minds without the help of wires or special effects. Also, I appreciate the man candy: the cast includes Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, and the delicious Michael Fassbender.

One person at the after party complained that Carano wasn't "a very good actor." To which I say: Who cares? She's a blast to watch fight and I think she acquits herself nicely in a role not requiring Shakespearean training. Anyway, judge for yourself: you can watch the first five minutes of the film for free online. It will give you a great feel for the tone and what to expect for the rest of the film.
