Haywire Review - 3 Stars

Mixed martial arts champ Gina Carano plays a spy for hire whom somebody wants to eliminate. Bad idea.  She decimates an all star cast kicking, chopping, shooting, doing what ever to move on to the next foe.  Carano has little or no action experience but her athletic skills put her on par with a great cast including Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum, and Michael Douglas.  And she does it with such style.  Don’t go expecting great literature but do go for the violent fun of it.  Please notice that “R” rating, too.  Does it deliver what it promises?  Kicks.  Is it entertaining?  You bet.  Is it worth the price of admission?  Great fun.
