“Haywire” Movie Review

Into the cinematic dead zone of January comes “Haywire” to kick off the new movie year on a sexy action high. We shouldn’t be surprised, since Steven Soderbergh, the Oscar-winning director of “Traffic,” is the master behind the camera.

This is Soderbergh working lean and mean outside the mainstream comforts of the “Ocean’s Eleven” franchise. Shooting digitally, Soderbergh gives “Haywire” B-movie oomph without sacrificing his fluid elegance.

Plus, there’s no keeping your eyes off his star attraction. She’s Gina Carano, the face of women’s mixed martial arts and just the five-foot-eight cage fighter you need to beat the crap out of male movie stars, such as Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum.

The script sparkles with droll wit, but I wouldn’t bother much with the plot details. Carano is the show: Poetry in kick-ass motion.
