Steven Soderbergh's spy movie starring mixed martial artist Gina Carano was retitled Haywire. Film has a brief plot description, but it's nothing that we haven't seen before: a black ops soldier is betrayed on a mission and seeks revenge. In fact, we've seen it twice in the last couple of months with The Losers and The A-Team. As /Film observes, where the movie looks interesting is in its supporting cast (Bill Paxton, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, and Antonio Banderas among others) and its potential to have some real fight sequences instead of tiresome, heavily-edited, shaky-cam montages of impressionistic battle.
