Lite’s Review Room – Weekend Movies: ‘Haywire’ & ‘Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close’ (page 2)
On the opposite end of the spectrum is “Haywire” starring Gina Carano as a black ops agent running for her life. There are some big names in this movie: Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and a horribly miscast Ewan McGregor, but the person you won’t be able to take your eyes off is Gina Carano. She plays this black ops agent so convincingly because she is a Mixed Martial Arts Champion. You might also know her as Crush on “American Gladiators.”

I’m giving “Haywire” a C because the storyline is ridiculous and nearly impossible to follow, but if you feel like watching a super tough chick go nuts on some bad guys, you’ll be stomping your feet and cheering, just like I was.
