Film director Steven Soderbergh is a busy man these days. He’s got several films slated to be released in 2012 and the first is “Haywire,” a gritty spy film. I attended the New York premiere and as a bonus the director and star, Gina Carano, were in attendance to talk about the film. “Haywire” is your typical spy film. Aside from some really bad-ass moves by Gina Carano, this is the same type of movie we’ve seen a million times before. I will say that the time passed quickly as usually I get fidgety in films and I think I’ve discovered why – because the synopsis of films are usually one sentence long and it takes two hours to explain that sentence. But I digress. The film is packed with action and there are a few surprises plus, the cast is great (as it features Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum and Antonio Banderas). Last, and certainly not least, athlete Gina Carano is smoking hot in the film. This is her first role and she pulls it off with poise and charm. During the Q&A, you could tell that she was truly grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with an A-list team and she mentioned that she’s really excited for what the future holds for her. If any of these things I’ve described are your thing, check out “Haywire.”
