Becky and I went to see the new movie Haywire this Weekend at the AMC Castle Rock theater. The Fandango website at Haywire describes the movie as follows…
“Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) is a highly trained operative for a government security contractor. Her missions take her to the world’s most dangerous areas. After Mallory successfully frees a hostage journalist, she’s betrayed and left for dead by someone in her own agency. Knowing her survival depends on learning the truth behind the double-cross, Mallory uses her black-ops training to set a trap. But when things go awry, Mallory knows she’ll die unless she can turn the tables on her adversary.”
Haywire is a strange action flick with an all-star cast, including Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton, Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, and Antonio Banderas but it’s not a very good film. It’s one of those “okay” movies about this woman, played by a less popular actress, who’s this bad-ass assassin and has been betrayed by the company she works for. She’s now this hot chick on the screen, who changes her hair style as much as her clothes and on a mission to kick some butt and use her mad killer skills to get back at the people who betrayed her.
This is definitely a flick for guys who like action movies and want to look at a great looking woman do her tae-kwon-do moves because there isn’t much more to this movie. It reminded me a little bit like SALT, with Angelina Jolie, but SALT was a way better movie because it actually had a good plot to go with the movie. Haywire doesn’t have much substance though and is really disjointed.
Becky thought this movie was stupid and a total waste of time. I kind of liked it because I’m a guy with testosterone and didn’t really care that the plot was a bit lame. It was different enough and had enough action to be entertaining. Even so, it’s more of a rental than a movie to pay the price of admission to go see at the theater, which is kind of crazy with all the big names that were in this movie.
