Haywire is a tired spy thriller that meshes the three styles of Steven Soderbergh - pop, clinical and indie - into one messy, sometimes dull B-movie.

While it remains to be seen where Carano goes from here in her film career, she certainly makes a memorable and quality first impression.

If you were to look at it as an assembly of tough (non-action) leading actors being lined up to have the crap beaten out of them by Carano - then it's a total success.

Gina Carano has a face that can hold a Hollywood close-up and a fist that can hold your nose until it comes clean off.

If you want to see a female action star in the making convincingly kicking the crap out of a succession of photogenic boys, this is the ticket to buy.

Soderbergh has delivered a hugely entertaining revenge thriller that has no right to be so dazzlingly-realised.

It's a fantastic minimalist action film where you actually get to see what is happening.

Haywire is as entertaining as a skillful cartoon. Gia Carano is Road Runner, and her adversaries are a bunch of Wile E. Coyotes.

Carano an action star to reckoned with in Haywire.

As with 'Contagion,' Soderbergh's arthouse cool does more to dampen the appeal of the genre material than to validate, elevate, critique or refresh it. Somebody show the auteur a Cynthia Rothrock movie, stat.

Haywire feels like a lot of people aimlessly running around for 90 minutes, kicking each other to the whimsical jazz score.

The story's been done to death but not since the days of Harry Palmer has it been told with this much style.

HAYWIRE is a pared-down, almost simplistic action movie, mostly designed to showcase the beauty and power of Soderbergh's new star, female mixed martial arts fighter Carano.

...an action film with a female protagonist played by an actress with the cred that she could actually accomplish what she's shown doing, and it's a lot of fun.

This spy action film features some great fight scenes and stunts. It is edited right down to the bone and the production is about as slick as anything in recent years. Emotionally, however, it is on the cold side.

There is no fat here, no extra material in need of being excised. The movie begins with a furious frenzy finding Mallory extricating herself from an altercation in a tiny roadside café and then moves backwards from there.

The limitations of the film aren't Carano's fault: Admittedly, her emoting borders on the wooden side, but she does have charisma and a natural screen presence, neither of which should ever be underestimated.

She's not much in the acting department, but Gina Carano can punch, kick and pounce, all of which is more important than acting in Steven Soderbergh's action flick.

Do you ever get the feeling a director is just messing with you? Just because they can? It's not unusual to get that feeling during a Steven Soderbergh film, especially when he moves away from the intellectual driven art fare he favors.

a slight genre exercise built on a spare, straight-to-video backbone and fleshed out with Soderbergh's experimental attitude
