Haywire


Review by Lucia Santiago Dantes.


Sodenberg’s new film sure has the style seen in other movies he made like Traffic, Ocean Eleven and even the brave heroine with a different perspective a la Erin Brockovich. The story follows Mallory (Gina Carano) some kind of super soldier woman. Trained to do all kind of risky operations. She works for a company that’s hired for the government to perform undercover international operatives. During one mission she is betrayed and framed. Her quest is to find out who did it? On the process she algo seeks for clearing her name. Almost like a globe trotting experience the film is filled with enough action, suspense, intrigue and espionage to keep your attention but nothing that even the very Sodenberg’s had done before. There are a few good chase scenes though, enough to take some tips out of them. Also in this movie: Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Angarano.
