Haywire, 2012 – ★★★

This is Gina Carano’s film. The big names – McGregor, Paxton, Douglas, Banderas, Fassbender – are given very little to do.

The fight scenes feel authentic but there doesn’t seem to be much fluency between them and those progressing the plot; a sign perhaps that Soderbergh’s style isn’t suited to an action film like this.
